Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. ~ Hebrews 4:16
Now, Christians, let us examine our prayer life. We go to our knees, we thank God for what He’s done, we praise Him for what He’s going to do, we ask Him to forgive us for our sins…
And then the, “if it’s Your will“ s start in. We begin to ask God for the things we want. The Bible says, And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. ~ John 14:13.
Now, you’re probably wondering where I’m going with this. Really, what I’m trying to explain, is this:
When we get on our knees to spend time with God, He takes us to His throne room. He listens to our prayers and our supplications. Did you know that there was a difference between the two? Prayer is thanking God and praising Him, which is how we get into God’s throne room of grace. But supplication is when we beg God for the desires of our heart. It’s when we ask Him to touch a situation in our life. It’s when we plea for His intervening and His will. Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me according to thy word. ~ Psalms 119: 170.
The Bible says in Hebrews to come boldly before the throne. I think, as Christian girls, that we aren’t being bold enough in our prayers. “Please send me true love, God. Amen.” What kind of prayer is that? Now, don’t get me wrong. I’ve prayed that plenty of times myself. But is that really bold? God wants us to be able to tell Him what we want. I think we should be specific. I think God wants details.
This is a crucial time in our life. Our future is about to be disrupted. Our world is about to be changed. We’re stepping from one life into another. Closing one door, opening the next…
One wedding can change everything.
One “I do” can effect your entire generation.
One love can determine your happiness for the REST OF YOUR ENTIRE LIFE.
Our prayer should be, “God, wherever he is, grow him in You. Give him zeal for You. I want my husband to pray on his knees with me. I want my husband to be a gentle, loving father to my children. I want my husband to be a leader that will raise a generation of children that will bring You honor. I want a husband that will follow You, that will walk with You, that will challenge me, in You. God, please. Jesus, please. I want a husband that will love You more than he could ever love me.”
If we want a man that truly walks with God, why aren’t we praying for it? Come boldly before the throne of grace. Give God your supplication.
And wait with patience until the day God sends him your way.
