Pray Bible Verses

0 comments

Praying is an action of believing, a way how we communicate with our God. Thus “believe” is faith – not only by mouth, but also by heart. Only persons who have faith in God would pray.

As Christian, I believe there are three answers from God of our prayers:

  1. Yes
  2. Not Yet
  3. No, I have better plan for you

Pray Bible VersesIn fact, God doesn’t always say “YES” to your prayers. If our prayers are not answered, doesn’t always mean that God didn’t hear our prayers, He may just have better plan for us.
