Living on Purpose: Praying and waiting on our miracle

Billy Holland

I received a letter the other day from a reader who wanted to know more about praying for miracles and how long a person should keep asking. My first response is to ask, "Just how serious are you about receiving your request?"

I realize the subject of faith is actually more complex than it seems and one that I have attempted to address in my new book, "Convictions and Considerations," which will be released this summer. There are many people, including myself, who are seeking and waiting on miracles for everything from financial breakthroughs to physical healing.

Most Christians understand the warnings against praying amiss and how God is not to be seen as a genie in a bottle, but at the same time, the Bible encourages us to step forward and not be afraid to present our petitions for needs that are important to us.
