In the Bible Prayer and trust By Pastor Joel Boyce Specia/ to The Sun We read in the Scripture of Jesus praying in the garden of Gethsemane. Jesus made spe- cific requests of his Heavenly Father, but in finishing his prayer, he made this statement, "nevertheless not my will but thine." What a wonderful les- son for those of us who wish to pattern our lives after Jesus Christ. The first thing we see is that we might go to our Heavenly Father and make requests di- rectly of him. Secondly we see that there is a trust in our Heav- enly Father that he won't give us that which we have asked for if he deems it not to be the best for us. Looking back I am certainly thankful that my mother and / my father did not give to me everything that I asked and even now looking back over my Christian experience I am certainly glad that God has not answered every prayer in ex- actly the way that I had prayed. Ask and ye shall receive, seek and ye shall fred, but trust God to not give you everything you ask for and not to let you find everything you seek. For further information on this topic read the book of Luke Chapter 22. Have you experienced any wonderful answers to prayer? I would love to hear about them please e-mail me or drop by the church sometime. Joel Boyce is the pastor of Sheridan Baptist Church. He can be reached at IX, eed denures?
