The Answer Is Not Always Prayer

I am sure that we, self included, do not pray as we should. We pray too weakly, too timidly, and too infrequently. Yet, there are times when another prayer is not the answer.

The LORD said to Moses, "Why do you cry to me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward. Lift up your staff, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, that the people of Israel may go through the sea on dry ground." ~ Ex. 14:15-16

Sometimes we need to stop praying and start doing, stepping out in faith onto the road prepared for us by the One who we have prayed to. There are times when we can pray till we are hoarse and nothing is going to happen, because the answer is awaiting our trusting obedience.
