I needed something. Real bad.
They told me to tell God about it. I did. But the thing did not come
They told me to look for it in the Bible and tell God I’d found it. I did. But the thing did not come
Then they told me to pray some more and fast about it. I did- but the thing still did not come.
Then they told me to get people to pray with me for it. And we all did. But the thing did not come…
Then I became tired of praying. And I stopped praying. But the thing did not come.
Then I went back to praying- asking God to forgive me for stopping. And I told Him all the reasons I should have what I wanted… But the thing did not come.
And I wanted to know if prayers do work. And why I needed to do so much to get what should be my Father’s absolute delight to give to me.
Then I heard…
The goal of Prayer is to hear…
So the next time I prayed, I listened
And when I listened, I heard
And when I heard, I did
And when I did, the thing finally came
So now I know…
Pray till you hear something. Pray till you see something
When you see and hear, just do it.
The greatest goal of prayer is not man to God, but God to man
Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.
Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,
I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart
Ps 40: 6-8
King James Version
Come to me with your ears wide open. Listen, for the life of your soul is at stake. I am ready to make an everlasting covenant with you, to give you all the unfailing mercies and love that I had for King David
