God answers our prayers in perfect timing. He knows when and how to answer one’s wish and grant overflowing happiness.
A 6-year-old boy named Mikey had been praying for a baby brother for years already. His mom had a miscarriage that brought sadness to the family. Despite this incident, Mikey continued to pray for a sibling. God doesn’t say “yes” all the time or in an instant. He knows the perfect time to grant your prayers.
Mikey’s mom got pregnant after the miscarriage. The family was so excited about the new family member. Mikey’s mom faced another challenge as the baby was born 9 weeks early. It was a super tiny boy weighed only 1.7 pounds at birth. And the family gave him the name Jake.
Baby Jake stayed in the NICU for 60 days before Mikey was finally able to visit him. Mikey’s heart was filled with joy seeing his brother and being able to hold him for the very first time. Jake was God’s answer to his prayers and a great blessing to the family.
If you ask something from the Lord, be patient and be optimistic for the Lord our God truly listens to our prayers.
