    Suddenly, Prayer is Answered, Part 3

    in Christianity

    TEXT: Luke 1:18-20

    Certainly, you have heard the expression, "too good to be true." Maybe you have used it from time to time. In our passage today, we come to the portion of Zacharias's story where responds to an answered prayer request as though it were too good to be true. As you know, Zacharias and his wife, Elisabeth, did not have any children. They wanted children, they prayed for children, but as the years progressed it became increasingly evident that children were not in the cards for them. 
    Until, one day, when Zacharias is faithfully carrying out his duty as a priest, an angel appears to him and says, "Zacharias, your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John." With old age setting in and the great amount of time that had passed since Zacharias had prayed for a son, it is easy to understand his reaction to this sudden and surprising announcement.
    The Bible says, "Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years." This is almost exactly the same question that Abraham asks in Genesis 15 when God tells him that he and Sarah will have a child in their old age. It is a reaction of disbelief. Surely, as a priest, Zacharias was familiar with the miraculous births of Isaac, Samuel, Samson, and others.  
    Have you ever doubted that God would answer your prayer or keep His promise to you? Have you ever told God, 'this is too good to be true'? Have you ever questioned God like Zacharias?
    What are some things to remember when we are tempted to doubt that God will answer our prayers?

    CHAMBER OF PRAYER - The Prayer is Answered

    in Spirituality

    I am poised to take a quantum leap into the life I have been praying for.  In the Light of Truth today, I can look across the veil and see that all of my prayers have been answered, and the answers are in existence in parallel universes as my probable experiences.  I can see a version of myself living in absolute fulfillment of my prayers. I can see that in Infinite Mind, IT IS ALREADY DONE. My prayers are answered. I can see that other things I have imagined happening are already done too -- everything I have imagined. Yet in the midst of all possibilities, the things that hold the greatest Light are those things that are highest and best for me -- those things that are God's Ideas for my Greatest Good. I can see that I only have to keep my eye on the Highest and Best and know that  the way across to fulfillment is already prepared for me. I have only to dismiss false evidence appearing real as I latch on to the Truth that Infinite Intelligence in me knows the way through to the place where my human life meets my answered prayer that is already done. IT'S ALREADY DONE. ~ Maisha

    Suddenly, Prayer is Answered, Part 2 (Praying Through the Bible #159)

    in Christianity

    TEXT: Luke 1:13-17

    The story of the angelic answer to the prayer of Zacharias and Elisabeth is a great encouragement to many of us who have been praying for something for a long time, but have yet to receive an answer. Zacharias' shock and subsequent disbelief at the news that he and his wife would have a son seem to indicate that he had all but given up on the request. But, the angel's words -- "thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son" -- remind us of an important truth: that God never forgets any of our prayer requests. We may give up on asking for something, but if it is something good and something that we truly desire, God may see fit to grant that request even if we have ceased asking for it.
    R.C.H. Lenski said, "The request referred to by the angel is the one that had been made [by Zacharias and his wife] during the years when childbirth was yet humanly possible. It is quite proper that [the words] 'was heard' refer to that time also. Prayers are often effectively heard by God long before he sends the answer. Zacharias had long ago stopped praying for a child because, like any godly Israelite, he did not think that he had a right to ask a miracle of God." 
    On that day, when Zacharias was fulfilling his duty in the Temple, he was not thinking about his personal prayer request being answered. But God was. And God answered his prayer in a sudden and remarkable way. We are reminded that a request delayed is not a request denied. We may indeed have to wait a long time for a prayer to be answered. However, the reason for the wait may not be, as is often suggested, that the person praying is not ready to receive the answer. But, rather, that God has a much greater answer to the prayer than the person praying  could ever imagine.
