Prayer Question-- Shiloh Style

Pin It Now! "What does God do with our prayers?" Shiloh asked me one evening after I had prayed with her.

"He listens to them," I said.

Before I could continue my answer, she interrupted, "Does he type them in?"

Oh, the cute way little minds work. :)

And because I don't want any of my children to get the very wrong idea that God is like some genie just sittin' around waiting to grant our every wish, I did go on to explain that God does indeed hear our prayers and answers them according to HIS will.

Not ours.

He knows what is best for each and every one of us, and I am grateful He hasn't answered every prayer that's been uttered from my selfish lips. There are some I wish with all my heart He'd go ahead and answer, though. :)

That is precious! I agree, even when I don't understand at times, His will is always better than mine!
