Why we pray to God

There are countless reasons why people pray to God for physical well-being, whether it’s to heal cancer or heal a broken bone.

Others pray in the hopes that their loved ones will pull through after an accident – even if they’re not religious, many people turn to prayer for comfort in times of crisis.

Sometimes we might say a healing prayer or seek spiritual healing and expect a quick answer.

We sometimes want God to answer us right away, and when nothing happens, we get frustrated and impatient. The Bible says, there is a time and a season for all things – Ecclesiastes 3.

So rather than getting frustrated because you don’t see an answer right away, be encouraged by the knowledge that God is actively working out your situation in His own time. And He will deliver you from your troubles, but it might not happen like you want (or expect).

Whatever your situation may be, remember that we serve a God that answers prayers for healing.
