Day 19 of 40-Day Prayer Challenge
”Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God.” Acts 10:4
Our prayers never die! When we pray, our prayers exist our four dimensions of space-time. Our prayers have no space or time limitations because the God who answers them exists outside of the four dimensions He created. You never know when His timeless answer will reenter the atmosphere of our lives, and that should fill us with holy anticipation. Never underestimate His ability to answer anytime, anyplace, anyhow. He has infinite answers to our finite prayers. He can answer them more than once. And He answers them forever.
Acts 10:4 declares that our prayers are memorial offerings. I cannot promise that God will answer your prayers how you want or when you want, but I can promise that God will answer. He always answers!
Like a parent who collects their children’s elementary artwork and displays it prominently on a refrigerator door, the Heavenly Father loves our prayers. Each one is a keepsake. Each one functions like a memorial that jogs the memory of the Almighty. If our prayers are that preecous to God, shouldn’t they be more significant to us? Aren’t they worth collecting like snapshots in a family photo album? Shouldn’t they be treated with respect and dignity, like the monuments that grace the naiton’s capital?
Our prayers are not perishable. They will not be forgotten. They will not go unanswered.
What to Pray? For fathers. That they would be men of God who seeks His face and take their rightful roles as spiritual leaders of their home.
