When I was at the darkest and most difficult time in my infertility struggles, I was invited by a friend to a prayer retreat. She knew of my struggles and wanted me to be a part of this retreat and so I went, not wanting to pass on any chance for my prayers for children to be answered. I went, knowing I had to put all or nothing on the table and this relates particularly to speaking my shame in front of everyone and being broken and expectant before God.

All of us that went came to meet God on another level as it relates to answers to deep groanings of our heart.
The other day, after many years, I saw one of the young ladies who were at the retreat. I was holding my daughter and she was so excited to see me. I also told her that we have a son and she wanted to meet him immediately. We began talking about the retreat and she went on to tell me that she too had received her answers from God. She wanted to be in a healthy marriage and also wanted a business opportunity that would give her a sense of self sufficiency. She testified to me that she got her answers.

The conversation then went on to us talking about being mindful of how God works as it relates to him  answering our prayers and most importantly, how we prepare and align ourselves to receive these answers, knowing fully well, that he does answer  prayers in his own time. The thing is, and I do believe this wholeheartedly, that if he does not think that we are ready to receive these answers, then we can pray until we are blue in the face, none will be forthcoming.

As we continue to seek God to answers to our prayers, let us be reminded of this and be encouraged.
