Let Me Ask You, Has It Been Too Long?

Let Me Ask You, Has It Been Too Long?
Author: Pat Aman…

I Thessalonians 5:17
“Pray Without Ceasing.”

I heard the old song today, “How Long Has It Been.”

Those words ring throughout my heart and mind.

How long has it been, since you talked to the Lord,
And told Him your heart’s hidden secrets?
How long since you prayed,
How long since you stayed,
On your knees ’til the light shone through?

In our world today we are hearing so much noise…

Even in our busy life-styles we do not even hear of many people that take the time to tarry at the altar. Everyone is in such a hurry to get home from church.

Then people are too busy to pray and spend time with God before they go to work and school.

We wonder why we do not recieve the answers to our prayers, could it be do not take the time to wait, sit still and listen. Yes, stay on our knees til the light has shone through.

Is your life filled with problems, sickness, heartache, anxiety and despair?

Then it is time we went back to the altar. Just as they did back when I was a child.

I remember a time when people were not in a hurry to leave church. I recall times when someone needed prayer everyone would gather around that old altar and as they say pray through. Yes, they prayed until they received and answer.

When my oldest daughter was 12 years old she had to have surgery. They said that it would last 9 to 12 hours. They also told us that she may be paralyzed from the surgery. She had scoliosis, which caused the spinal cord to be curved. Tara’s went from just a little curve that the doctor said we would keep an eye on, into a total “S” shape in less then 3 month.

I remember staying on my knees praying until the light shone through. I called out to God for healing for her body. I was determine that she would not be paralyzed.

I would not let go of God. I was like Jacob, I held on until I got my prayer answered. Yes, I held on and prayed until I knew with all of my heart that Tara would be blessed by God .

Jacob struggled with the angel and prevailed; he wept and sought his favor. He found him at Bethel, and there he spoke with him. At Bethel, Jacob wrestled with an angel and won; then with tears in his eyes, he asked for a blessing, and God spoke to us there. he fought against an angel and won.

“Yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto him: he found him in Beth–el, and there he spake with us;”
‭‭Hosea‬ ‭12:4‬ ‭

She is now an adult and she water ski’s, snow ski’s, and does everything and anything she wants too. See mama prayed through.

So I asked you today, is there something in your life that you need to pray through?

Do you need to stay on your knees until the light has shone through?

Does your mind need to be at ease, and your heart to not be burdened?

Today, just kneel down, and call Jesus your friend, and hold on. Do not let go. Stay in prayer,until your recieve your answer.

God is still in the miracle working business.

“Oh God, I am so glad I can call You my friend, and that I know that You care for me.”Pat Aman
