Patience in Prayer

Bible Passage: Psalm 130:1-8

How would it be if with every prayer you said it actually was answered the way you asked it? 
In this scripture we see a person that is desperate. If you’ve lived a life of a Christian and find yourself in a place where you just can’s see out of, desperation sets in and prayer begins. The glorious thing is that God hears our prayers. How many times when we pray that the enemy comes in a tries to tell you that God never heard you or that you’ve already prayed that prayer? 
There is times where God can’t hear our prayers. It’s not because He doesn’t want to hear them, it’s that we’ve pushed ourselves away from Him with the sins in our lives. One can’t hold on to sin and expect God to hear us. True repentance is the only way that will allow God to hear from us. Repentance where we turn completely away from the sin. Have you ever noticed that when you’re not right with God you find yourself avoiding “church people”? This is often due to the fact that God is trying to wake you up to repentance.
Your soul needs God’s company. When you no longer need hope then patience
We should hope in God like those that watch for the morning. Those that are on a night-watch hope for the morning, the first sign of daylight. The light causes the darkness to flee.
