Sometimes God’s will is not done because we don’t partner with Him. We do it our way. We don’t listen so we don’t obey. God’s goal is always to find the lost and bring them to Him in true love and fellowship. He invites us to partner with Him to do His work. Prayer is more than thanking Him, it is more than interceding for others, it is more that connecting with Him. Prayer is joining in His creative work. To be a part of bringing about God’s will. To use our voice to pray His will. Prayer is partnering with God.
I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one.
Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.John 17:11, 17-18
