When you pray, do you allow for silence, or do you expect an answer right away? John 17

Good morning everyone,
When we pray, do we get in a hurry to expect answers in our time or in God's time?  Remember, God has a different time line than we do!  When we pray, God wants us in total communion with Him.  Oswald Chambers reminds us that if we only take as answers those prayers that are visible to our senses, we are in a very elementary condition of grace.  Read John 17 and find out what God is after for your life!  When you pray, God expects you to give Him a chance to answer according to His will and that may take time.  Don't go to God expecting answers according to your will or you will probably be disappointed!  Exchange more than a Morse code for help or a last ditch effort and make prayer a regular part of your day.  When you see any concern throughout the day, let God be the one to determine if the concern is worthy of prayer or not!  You just lift it up to Him in Jesus name and then let your faith be grounded in trusting that His will is going to be done!  Don't hinge your relationship on a slot machine but on the 'grounded' faith of a mustard seed.  The closer you get to the Savior, the more you will see His divine nature at work!  May God richly Bless each of you as you serve Him with your whole heart!
Your brother in Christ,
