The Prayer that's Always Answered

Spurgeon once said, “Short prayers are long enough.”

Sometimes I’m unsure of what to pray for, how to pray, what I really want God to do, or how to even formulate my prayers.

So I drone on and on, much like “vain repetition,” I’m sure.

I know I want Him to do something.

And it usually comes down to one thing.
I just want His will.

Maybe you’ve been there, too.

Not sure to pray for a “yes” or a “no.”

So your prayer ends up being a simple prayer that He would work His will—whether it’s a yes or a no.

We don’t know what we should pray for as we ought, Romans tells us.

So the Spirit prays for us (Romans 8:26,27).

And He always prays for God’s will to be done.

Let’s pray this too.

Even if this one short prayer is all that crosses our lips.

"Your will be done."

This is the prayer that’s always answered.

Whatever his soul desires, that He does.
For He performs what is appointed for me. (Job 23:13,14)
