WISHES AND PRAYERS

James 4:2,3 – Sometimes we do not receive because we do not ask. On the other hand, God will not answer selfish requests for things we do not need.

Most of us religious people of this generation,our prayers are just as wishes

What we do is we think we are praying

But what we are actually doing is making wishes to God

Telling and asking Him what we wish for

But we are not like that

That is not how God wants us to relate with Him

Prayers are not meant to be that way

You pray and you say Amen,may it be done

But all that you just said were all wishes

Things that you are not sure can be true,cannot actually fit in your life

But you have heard about Jesus

That He is the Lord of impossibilities

That He is able to make miracles

Yes He does!

But His miracles are as well dependent on you

What you do afterwards

Not only the faith but the effort you put in it

You see inasmuch as many of us go to Christ empty handed

We also confront Him without a plan of action

We have heard that Jesus is a wonderful listener

So we just close our eyes,call on Him

And then we give him a long list of things we want to have

We believe that our faith is so much deep

That we can command anything out of nothing

Yes that is possible!

Our God is the Lord of all possibilities

But what I want you to know is that trusting God alone is not enough

Just leaving everything to God and doing nothing is not enough

You see,God made it known to us

That He is going to help us if we are willing to help ourselves

That the help is only going to reach us only if we are moving towards it

You cannot tell God you want to be good in Math when you do not study Math

That you want a partner when you still have that rude attitude and you do not relate well

That you want to get through with college but you are afraid of taking tests

You see, you should not pray for something you are not prepared to receive

Something you are not ready for,something you cannot handle

You see if we pray to Jesus,our prayers are heard and made to come true

But we just do not see it

Because we have not made room for it

We have not placed ourselves in a position to catch our miracles from God

God will not give you what is above you

We need to put a stop to our wishful prayers

We need to start praying for the right things

Things we need and not things we wish we had

We need to stop praying for things we think we kinda want

We must pray for what we need badly!

Things that are not going to lead us astray from our God.

God gives, not necessarily what we want, but what is best for everyone involved.

  1. Dear Richmond,

    I’m K&L, the Founder & CEO of the Millionaire’s Digest Magazine, and I recently received you’re application requesting to become a writer for our magazine and this is just a letter from me to let you know that I have accepted you to become a writer for our Religion and Successful Living Magazine!

    Now what happens next is that there really is nothing that happens next. Another words, there is no invitation that you have to go and check to confirm. This is just my letter as the CEO, to let you know that you have been accepted onto our magazine team!

    The only thing that changes now is that at the beginning of every month (usually on the first day), you will receive our Millionaire’s Digest magazine invitation in your email, which will include the following:
    -Which magazine edition we are coming out with next.
    -Who the magazine is for. (Which magazine writers is it for.)
    -How to submit you articles.
    -Where to go to submit your articles.
    -When the last day is to turn in your articles.
    -How long your articles need to be.
    -And everything else that you will have questions for!

    Other than that, if you have any other questions, you’re always welcome to ask me, and I will help make sure to get them answered for you!

    Have a nice rest of the day and thank you!

    Sincerely,
    K&L
    Millionaire’s Digest Magazine Founder & CEO

  2. Hello Richemund,

    I’m sorry for getting back to you so late. I’ve been very busy and just been going through some things, and so I’m just getting caught back up, and so I hope you’re not too mad at me.

    Anyway, to help answer your question, for our magazine, I ask that you please write a new article instead of submitting an article you have already published on your website, and I don’t say that to be mean or anything. It’s just sometimes we will get those people who submit articles that may not be relevant to the season, date, theme, time, or idea that the magazine focuses on.

    For example, take our Travel Magazine. If it’s summer, and someone submits an article they’ve previously written on their blog about where the best places to stay and visit are during the month of December when snow is falling on the ground, it wouldn’t make sense to publish an article written about the winter when were in the month of August and the other 52 magazine writers have written their article focused on Summer. Does that make sense in a way? If it, doesn’t, then I’ll try to explain it further for you, but if it does, I’m glad I could help!

    For our website/platform, though, you are more than welcome to submit as many articles as you would like that you have already previously written on your website, as well as new articles that you are writing for your website along the way. Just as long as they follow our Terms of Service and the post that everyone agrees upon before they sign up to write articles for the Millionaire’s Digest website, and you will be fine. Hope this helps!

    Sincerely,
    K&L
    Millionaire’s Digest Magazine Founder & CEO
