How many of us have lost sight of our dreams and visions? What about those things we once prayed so strongly about? Many years have passed and those prayers never seemed to receive an answer. I can hear the Holy Spirit say, "Revive a lost cry, dear one, for the Father has not forgotten your tears. He is waiting to answer those prayers from long ago. The Father wants you to cry out again for those things that once stirred in you like a burning passion. He is wanting you to pray through where you have slacked off, and not lose hope."
Thirty years ago, I can remember praying for the salvation of my family. I have not yet seen an answer to my plea. My heart's desire was for them to appreciate all of God's blessings. I sense the Holy Spirit prodding me to rekindle that flame. God tugged at my heart to start praying again for my family members. Each one of God's children has a special purpose. It may have been buried, but I have learned to listen to those nudges from God. Maybe God is wanting to bring a lost talent out of you, or have you pray for a family member's salvation. Listen to God's voice as He nudges you on His behalf.
He desires us to be persistent in bringing all our prayers to His throne everyday, and to trust Him in everything. He not only wants us to pray for our needs, but the needs of others. They are just as important to Him as they are to us. He will urge our spirits to revive those buried prayers that we may have forgotten about. God delights in our prayers. He can, and will move on your behalf to answer your heart's cry.
Father in Heaven, I ask You to remind me of those things I once prayed about. Remind me of those lost prayers I prayed long ago. Give me the strength to keep praying for those things that were important to me. You have never given up on me, and I thank You for that. You have been persistently nudging me with Your love and grace. I know You want me to keep praying, and not give up. Then you will hear me when I call for help. I ask you to step onto the scene of those buried prayers. In Jesus' name, I ask and humbly pray, Amen.
