As soon as I pray, God answers. As soon as you pray, God answers. The Psalmist wrote about a response of encouragement and strength, but this isn’t the only answer from God. We can rest assured that as soon as we pray, God answers in whatever way He desires.
When you pray, remember that you are speaking with God. You are speaking to God. Sometimes because we are talking to One we cannot see, we do not communicate effectively. We come up short. We may not ask for what is truly on our hearts because we are trying to speak the perfect prayer. Or maybe we spend so much time praying for others because we want to be humble, that we never connect with God one-on-one.
Today, spend time in prayer with your loving Father. Remember that the moment you speak to Him, He answers you. He adores when you come to Him in prayer, especially when you are sharing what is on your heart. Every single prayer He hears. Every single prayer He answers. You may not understand how He answers or why the answer is not what you expected. Spend time getting to know God, and you’ll find that prayer is all about knowing God more and growing closer to Him.
“As soon as I pray, You answer me; You encourage me by giving me strength.” – Psalm 138:3 [NLT]
