The Promise of Answered Prayer
John 15:4 & 7
There are times that we jump to the wrong Conclusion about prayer!
A scientist had a frog. He decided to study the little guy. So he says
"Jump frog, Jump" and the frog jumped 8 feet. So he noted in his journal
that a frog with 4 legs jumps 8 feet.
Then he cut off one leg and said "Jump Frog, Jump". The frog then jumped
6 feet and he made the required notation. After cutting off the 2nd leg
and saying Jump, Jump,.. the frog only jumped 4 feet.. and the scientist
so noted. He then cut of the third leg and told the frog to jump...he
jumped 2 feet.. and the scientist noted in his book that a frog with only
one leg jumps 2 feet.
Finally, he cut off the last leg and said "Jump Frog, Jump" but alas the
frog jumped nowhere. The scientist opened his book and noted "after
cutting off all legs, the frog becomes totally deaf." The Be -Attitudes

Babbette again prays..."God, please let me win the lotto! I've lost
my business, my house and I'm going to lose my car as well."
Lotto night comes and Babbette still has no luck.
Once again, she prays..."My God, why have you forsaken me??
I've lost my business, my house, and my car. My children are
starving. I don't often ask you for help and I have always been a
good servant to you. PLEASE just let me win the lotto this one
time so I can get my life back in order."
Suddenly there is a blinding flash ...
