God Has The Answers…by Amy

Did you ever run to mom or dad when your world fell apart?

I am the Practice Administrator at a midwife clinic.  They call me Mom.  I am called that for many reasons (where is the toilet paper?) but I believe the main one is that I am the one they come to when they have come to the end of themselves, when their client’s pregnancy is complicated, the situation is confusing.

The midwives know that I am Christian.  Three out of four of the midwives are not.  They ask if I believe that God listens to prayer.  And I answer yes.  Do I believe that God answers prayer?  And I answer yes.  Would I pray for them?  And I answer yes.

But do I know if God answered their prayers?  No, I don’t.  Do I want to know if He did?  Of course, I do.  I don’t want to be seen to have failed.  I just professed that I believe God answers prayer so what if He didn’t or not in the way that was asked.  I have to admit that this stops me from praying for people sometimes.  What if I get it wrong?  I likely do sometimes.  I keep praying anyway and running back to my Dad because He has the answers, not me.
