If you can’t raise the money for the operation, can you at least find a way to remedy the situation. Peter acknowledged that he didn’t have money, but he didn’t fail to give the crippled man what he had. Pray when all that’s needed is prayer; but when something more is needed, add diligence to your prayers. What can you do for someone who needs school fees and stands a chance of losing everything if it’s not paid in 7 days? What can you do for someone who is looking for a job and hasn’t found one in his 7 years of searching?
Of course, I know you can pray for them, but how would you feel if you have the resources or connections required to pay the fees and give out a job. The first time Jesus sent out His disciples, He told them not to carry any resources along because prayer alone would pave the way for them. But the next time He sent them, He told them to carry everything they had. Don’t just grow your prayer life, also build resources and a network of resourceful people. A mentor once said that if it takes you too long to get what you want, then your network is poor. Also, if your prayers takes too long to deliver the results you want, then your network is poor. Honestly, as a Christian, I feel bad when the only thing I can do for someone in a great need is to pray.
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Notes. But take these last words; THERE’S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SECURING ANSWERS TO PRAYER AND BECOMING THE ANSWER TO PRAYER. THINK ABOUT IT; BEFORE THOSE PEOPLE COME TO YOU FOR HELP, DON’T YOU THINK THEY’VE ALSO PRAYED? Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
