Pray Until You are Skinny

People sometimes quit praying for the same reason they quit a diet. It is really difficult and it seems to take too long. No one starts a diet and wakes up two days later able to wear their skinny clothes. The same is true oftentimes with prayer. Sometimes there is an immediate answer, but most often it takes weeks, months and even years to see the breakthrough.

I was reminded this morning in our prayer time that it is easy to get discouraged and tired after praying for such a long time without the big miracle happening.  This is why the psalmist wrote:

 “My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.

Psalm 57:7 NIV

This is my prayer today – “Father in heaven, help me to remain steadfast, unmovable, and unshakable. Help me to pray and believe and not lose heart or grow tired. Help all of us to keep praying until we are skinny.”

  1. One time I prayed that I would be in shape the next morning when I woke up…..didn’t happen. I have also prayed to win the lottery, get a new car, and a bigger house….same result.
    God did tell me to lose weight, allowed me to purchase a house, helped me to buy a newer car…still waiting on the lottery.
    Prayer works for me, and it also gave me a hot wife.
