“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.” Colossians 4:2
When we pray, we exchange our burdens for divine empowerment in overcoming obstacles because it is a moment of listening and surrendering to God’s will. Sometimes, we may pray for certain obstacles to be removed from our paths, only to discover that God has a different plan that involves us growing through the challenges instead of merely avoiding them.
In times when prayer seems unanswered, it can be discouraging. However, we must remember that God’s timing is perfect, and His ways are higher than our ways. In these moments of waiting, we are called to trust in His goodness and faithfulness. Through prayer, we cultivate a spirit of gratitude, acknowledging that God’s plans are better than our own and that His delays do not equate to denials.
Philippians 4:6 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
