Know Why God Answers Prayer?

. at . 3 comments

It’s His compassion.

“Jesus intercedes in prayer on my behalf because of His compassion too.”

God knows that sometimes I am like  a restless, wandering, selfish sheep. I get myself into mud-holes, on the wrong side of the fence, or topple over and need help getting back into the pasture. And don’t you imagine that sheep feels grateful for the help?

I woke up as a thankful sheep today because yesterday I found the 24 news/journal/magazine articles. They were in my safe place, but I couldn’t remember where that was.  🙂  So after much prayer and procrastination, I purposed to look and look until I found them. Which I did!

I had looked last week and did not find them!

I have to turn in a reaction paper (for each one) this week. As the days passed with no articles in hand, I was feeling more and more like I was in a mud-hole, on the wrong side of the fence and upside down. It was totally my fault for losing them. I called myself all sorts of names like “baaaad, messy, thoughtless sheep.” 

So why should God help me out? Why would He?

Because He’s compassionate!

How have you experienced God’s compassion this week?

(Okay, there are really more reasons why God answers prayer. I just had to clear that up.)
