Does prayer really work?
I know that some might think this is a blasphemous question but I have to ask.

I have heard tales of answers to prayers from other people how they have prayed and what seems like seconds later a miracle happens in their life.

In fact the majority of answered prayer tales i have heard are the immediate miraculous variety.

But what happens when one prays and prays and prays and prays but yet doesn't see any answer.

What then?

Personally, I think the spirtual community (the christian church in my case) focuses too much on the immediate and miraculous when it comes to their testimonies.

As if God were solely in the fast food business.

For those of us who seem to be in the wait forever business those testimonies are more discouraging rather then encouraging.

I digress.... but what the hey... it is my blog. :)

But can the miraculous really happen in my life?

Can my deepest heart desires really be met?

I don't know. My hope and prayer is yes....
