I've discovered over and over again, how God honors prayer as we keep at it. My feelings or intellectual struggles make no difference in this at all. As I keep bringing myself to God, as well as requests in regard to responsibilities, I've seen God answer prayer.
It's good when we enter into a situation knowing we're utterly impoverished ourselves and in need of God. Sometimes I've felt good and inspired so as to enter a responsibility with little or no felt need for God, and so was left without much of a sense of God's help at all, if any, in it. But knowing I'm lost or empty myself, means I could find God's help, in answer to prayer.
So let's pray as we go. Pray all the time, not only for ourselves and God's will in our lives, but for others, and for all of us in Jesus. Let's keep at it. Then we will find God's good help, as we find our way in him.
