Prayer When You Need To Ask God Why

This year has been an exceptional year in many ways. The United States has seen its share of upheavals and shifts, demonstrations and protests, natural disasters and man-made devastation. London UK is facing unusual demonstrations as are other major cities around the world. Young men and women are rising up against state oppression in Thailand and Nigeria.

In your own personal life, you have also had your questions for the Lord. Have you had to ask God: “Why, Lord”? Whether is pain, hurt, relationships, career, business, or just in your everyday working, sleeping, day to day life.

One of the reasons why testimonies are so powerful is because they remind us that though we know in part, and understand little of the present, our God sees the whole picture. And when we trust in Him, He works things out for our good in the long run. Are your thoughts and utterances like psalmist in Psalms 10?

Psalm 10:1-5 Why, O Lord, do you stand far away? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? In arrogance the wicked hotly pursue the poor; let them be caught in the schemes that they have devised. For the wicked boasts of the desires of his soul, and the one greedy for gain curses and renounces the Lord. In the pride of his face the wicked does not seek him; all his thoughts are, “There is no God.” His ways prosper at all times; your judgments are on high, out of his sight; as for all his foes, he puffs at them.

And he continues to cry in Psalm 10:1-7, “His mouth is filled with cursing and deceit and oppression; under his tongue are mischief and iniquity.

Yes, you are not the only one who sometimes have questions. But don’t allow these questions to weaken your faith; trust in the Lord. Read the testimonials of others. Build your faith. Get your thoughts and heart in line with the Lord. And encourage yourself in the word and in prayer!

1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

Prayer When You Need To Ask God Why

Oh Heavenly Father, so many thoughts are running through my mind. I have so many questions, Lord, I just don’t understand why. But You My Lord are king, forever and ever. Your wisdom is above all. You created and shaped the foundations of the earth.

Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Lord, you hear the desires of the afflicted. You strengthen the heart of the weak. You bring justice to the oppressed.

Isaiah 55:8-9 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Lord, I may not understand today, but may I always seek your face. May I always trust in your word. Let none turn me away from your truths. Your ways are higher than my ways and your thoughts higher than mine.  I trust you Lord, to lead me in the paths of righteousness, all the days of my life. In Jesus name, Amen!

Hebrews 4:16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

  1. I was in a Christian meeting and in my thoughts I said to God why have you allowed all these things to happen to me, a lady preacher was praying for somebody out loud and no sooner had I asked God why in my thoughts, she prayed over these people and said do not ask God why.. I couldn’t believe it God answered my prayer straightaway. at the end of the day day I suppose we’ll never know, so I don’t ask why anymore
