Answer to Prayer

Do you ever ask God for things? We are so self sufficient that we often turn to God when our own measures fail. I am ashamed to say that is the situation that Allison and I found ourselves in last night. We had exhausted our own will on this particular problem and turned to God in prayer. Today He answered and humbled us in His own gracious way that left no doubt He had done it. This leaves us with 2 conclusions.
First, God is good , Psalm 37:23/ therefore:
Second, He answers His children when they call. James 5:16, 17a:

"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way."

"Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed.
The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly..."
