“What Would Happen If God......?”

Categories: In the Bulletin

Hear my prayer, O LORD; give ear to my pleas for mercy! In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness! – Psalm 143:1
                               What would happen if God…?

What would happen if God ... installed an automatic telephone answering machine in heaven? 

Imagine praying and listening to the following message: Thank you for calling my Father's House. Please select one of these options: 
     * Press 1 for requests.
     * Press 2 for thanksgiving.
     * Press 3 for complaints.
     * Press 4 for any other subject. 

Imagine that God used this well-known excuse: At the moment all our angels are busy, attending to other clients. Please keep praying on the line, your call will be answered in the order that was received.

Can you imagine getting these types of answers when you call God in your prayer? ….
     If you want to talk to Gabriel, press 5.
     With Michael, press 6.
     With any other angel, press 7.
     If you want King David to sing a Psalm, press 8. 
     If you want to get answers to foolish questions about dinosaurs, the age of Earth, where Noah's Ark is, please wait to get to Heaven.

Can you imagine the following in your prayer?
     Our computer indicates that you have already called today. Please clear the line for others who also want to pray ... Or:
     Our offices are closed for Easter, holidays and weekends. Please call again on Monday.

Thank God this does not happen ...
Thank God you can call him in prayer as many times as you need ...
Thank God that at the first call, He always answers you ... 
Thank God because the Jesus line is never busy ...
Thank God that He answers us and knows us by our name ...
Thank God that He knows our needs before we manifest them ...
Thank God because it is up to us to call him in prayer ...
Thank God for reading (listening to) this message …

‚Ä®For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer ….       1 Peter 3:12.
