How long were you going to wait?

I have learned a lesson on prayer in the last 3 days.

Just when you think you've heard it all about prayer... :-)

Well, Pastor Max Yeary said something that was an absolutely prophetic zinger in my heart and didn't even realize it the other day when he was sharing in his question and answer session. On the way home I told Larry, "lets agree in prayer on that..."

I have to admit to you, what I was praying about I thought might take YEARS of prayer and fasting. In fact, duh, duh, duh (I feel so dumb) I had not even begun to pray about it because I thought it such a large mountain.

The facts I cannot describe on an open blog that can be read by anyone. But...suffice it to say it was something weighing me down. So we agreed on Tuesday on the way home from Ft. Lauderdale to pray about it. Last night I spent about 15-20 min in Sanctuary B Room praying before service (for the service) but I also mentioned that request to God...for the first time. I thought it would be the first time of many.

Lo and behold before midnight on Wednesday night I had my answer. In less than 24 hours of praying about this thing, it's solved.

So this morning I am riding my bike and I turn my MP3 off for a second and start talking to the Lord and He says to me, "so how long were you going to wait before you decided to just ask me for it?"
