Tear up your prayer list


medical mission The Gambia airport

As we deboarded in The Gambia airport on our recent medical mission.

When most of the requests are already answered by God, there comes a moment of great joy like a graduation.

When your relationship is almost entirely healed. When your children come back to God. When you finally get out of debt. When you finally get into ministry. It may take months or years. But when that day comes, tear up the list and celebrate with a cappuccino.

They were happy just playing with two sticks, smacking them together like drumsticks.

Then make a new list. We’re moving forward and making progress. Today’s satisfactions fill us with hope and faith for tomorrow’s needs. Christianity is a forward-looking faith. Your petitions become praises. You get new petitions. It’s never stagnant, not static, always dynamic.

    We will never be stagnant when we surrender all to God.

    PRAY IT FORWARD!!!!

  3. More than “tear it up,” I’d say, keep your faith current. God doesn’t change, but we and our circumstances do, so the more we experience of God and His blessings, the more we need to press into Him.

  4. You are very right brother! As joy fill the old petitions, new ones will always replace it and that is why we continue to be filled with the joy of the Lord. It’s always dynamic. There is always joy when you do anything with love and the Lord will transform that love to become joy in the lives of others. More of God’s blessing 🙂

    I like this. Time moves and when one things is completed- it’s time to move onto the next.

  6. We are always moving forward and there are always different things and people to pray for… and never forget to give thanks for many things in life we take for granted.
    Thanks for being here!
