“Thank you for calling, your call is important to us. You are currently number 4 in the queue.” – How many times have you heard that when you’ve called a business or organisation?
Imagine when we prayed, if God replied, “Thank you for praying. Your prayer is important to me. You are call number 8 million in the queue.”
I doubt that would be very pleasing. It wouldn’t make us feel particularly important to God if we were constantly way down the queue for Him to hear our prayer.
Fortunately that’s not how God work – Our prayers are important to Him, i.e. no need to wait around in a queue for Him to hear our prayer.
1 John 5:15 – “And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.”
