DELAYED ANSWERED PRAYERS MAY BE DUE TO SPIRITUAL WARFARE SO YOU MUST PERSEVERE!
Prayer is a wonderful gift. At the drop of a hat we can be standing in the throne room of God. He is never going to put us on call waiting. He hears our cries immediately. He may not answer our prayers in OUR time but they will be answered, one way or another.
We need to remember there is spiritual warfare affecting us at times. Prayers can be delayed. Don’t forget to pray for a hedge of protection around you or those you love.
A hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling.
Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV1984)
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
