Worthy of Answered Prayer?

Often when we are asking for help when experiencing a challenge, whether it is physical, financial or problems with relationships, there is doubt of deserving God’s help.  This was what I was thinking when I was reading about Peter cutting off the ear of the soldier who was arresting Jesus.  He didn’t hesitate in reprimanding Peter and immediately healed the man’s ear.  Surely, humanly this soldier didn’t merit this act of forgiveness.

From there, I begin to think of the world’s concept of riches is grasping and hoarding while God’s way includes letting go and giving.  Humanly, none of us are probably worthy of God’s goodness, but it is given us by grace.  1 Peter 1:8 reads “Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.”  This is all possible by the grace of God.
