    Patience In Prayer

    When the idea is not right, God says, "NO".
    No - when the idea is not the best.
    No - when the idea is absolutely wrong.
    No - when though it may help you,
    it would create problems for someone else

    When the time is not right, God says, "SLOW".
    What a catastrophe it would be if God answered every prayer at the snap of your fingers.
    Do you know what would happen?
    God would become your servant, not your master.
    Suddenly God would be working for you instead of you working for God.

    When you are not right, God says, "GROW."
    The selfish person has to grow in unselfishness.
    The cautious person must grow in courage.
    The timid person must grow in confidence,
    The dominating person must grow in sensitivity.
    The critical person must grow in tolerance.
    The negative person must grow in positive attitudes.
    The pleasure-seeking person must grow in compassion for suffering people.

    When everything is all right, God says, "GO."
    Then miracles happen:
    A hopeless alcoholic is set free.
    A drug addict finds release.
    A doubter becomes a child in his belief.
    Diseased tissue responds to treatment, and healing begins.
    The door to your dream suddenly swings open and there stands God saying, "GO!".
    Remember: God's delays are not God's denials.
    God's timing is perfect.

    Patience is what we need in prayer.

    Wow, that was beautiful.
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
