There was a boy, who was brought up by his widow mother (a devoted Christian), he learnt to pray ever since he could remember, his first reading material was the artwork with scripture from Sunday School, which he enjoyed the activities and had always been the best behaved kid in the class.
The boy grown up and started working. Few years later, he met some new friends and hung out with the wrong group of people. He started to think he knew much more than his Mom, he concerned more on his “eventful” life style and soon his “eventful” schedules had no spare slot to attend church services, read Bible, pray nor stay at home; he became rebellion towards his Mom and even reluctant to have contact with her.
About a couple of decades later, his Mom passed away in her sleep. While clearing out her belongings, he found an envelope addressed to him. It was a letter from his Mom, telling him how much she loved him and how much God loves him; how she had put him in her daily prayers, even when it seemed he was so far away from her and God; how she longed to see him return back to God; and how she believed God will one day answered her prayers.
His tears kept flooding down his face, his Mom’s words had melted his last shield, he had never thought she would still pray for him even after the rude remarks he had made to her, to her belief and to God; he couldn’t believe the extent of her faith in God. Right on the spot, he made a tremendous decision, he confessed his sins to God and repented. Then he got rid of all his “so-call” friends and started to attend church services. Not only did he return back to God, he also decided to involve himself in ministry work.
The above is his testimony.
Did God answered his Mom’s prayers?
Yes, God did.
God heard her and He knew when was the perfect time to answer her prayers.
God’s schedules are differ from our schedules; we cannot say God does not answer our prayers just because we haven’t seen the results yet. Remember, we are short sighted; God is long sighted.
No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him. ~ I Corinthians Chapter 2 verse 9 (New Living Translation)
Have a glorious day!!
