God responds our Desperate Prayers!




Desperate and Soul-stirring prayer result in answers. When God is sought in desperation He responds! - Jim Cymbala (storm)

Maybe you feel like God has let you down. So the enemy is using the tool of discouragement to whisper lies like, “Where is your God you said was so faithful?” Perhaps you’re allowing the devil to silence your prayers before they even form on your lips. Beloved, I challenge you to not grow weary in well doing. I challenge you to rebuke the devil and persist in prayer. We get discouraged because we’ve taken our eyes off of God. Do as the Psalmist did in the next verse and fix your eyes on God:

“Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul? Why are you crying the blues? Fix my eyes on God—soon I’ll be praising again. He puts a smile on my face. He’s my God.” - Psalm 42:11 - Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

Fix your eyes on your faithful, loving, mighty, covenant-keeping God! And persist in secret, desperate prayer!! Why? Because … God Answers Desperate Prayer

Dear Lord, 
Hear my earnest prayer! I give my life to you today, every bit of it. I’m yours. Help me. Be my God. No longer will I build my life on shifting sand. You are my rock, and with your help I will establish my life on your firm foundation.  I feel as though I am losing my grip and can barely hang on a moment longer. In desperation I reach my hand to you, God. Grab me! Pull me out of this mess! Deliver me from this pit, and I will praise you. I will tell of your great wonders. I will make known your wonderful ways, steadfast love, and unending power. Thank you! I know you hear me and that you save the humble and contrite of heart. Forgive me for my decisions, actions, and attitudes that got me to this place. I receive your forgiveness and power to change. And as I am forgiven, I forgive each person that has contributed to my temporary defeat, for my victory is at hand. You are here. I love you. I called and you answered. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
