“I have sat and heard your prayers. They were all solemn and thoughtful, but you have no faith. The item that you left at home proves your lack of faith. With this serious lack of faith you will never see the answer to the pray you so earnestly seek. What is the evidence of your lack of faith? No one in here believes in your prayers so much so that you thought to bring an umbrella!”
David prayed with expectation. David hurts and he prays. David rejoices and he prays. When David prays he expects answers. “Listen to my voice in the morning, LORD. Each morning I bring my request to you and wait expectantly.” (Psalm 5:3 NLT). David knows that the answers might not always be what he wants, but when he prays he expects something to happen.
Let me ask you, are you praying like David … expecting results? Or are you praying like the villagers … expecting no results metaphorically leaving your umbrellas at home?
