"For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised." ESV
If we cannot see the Lord answering our prayers, it is often times because we are sitting passively by, like a spectator, waiting for Him to move on our behalf. The Word tells to be active when we pray: listen, walk, pray, be mindful, be ready, put on, throw aside, rejoice, forgive, and endure. There are many more things we are instructed to do as we wait on Him. If we are doing these things, we will see and know He is answering our prayers.
Lord, so many times we overlook what You are doing in answer to our prayers. We sit back and expect You to respond to our needs while we neglect to do those things You have told us to do. Forgive us, Lord, for our neglect and help us to be actively working out our own salvation. In Your name we pray, Amen.
