At times, God permits us to see the results of answered prayer immediately, as when you pray that He would get you to work despite that flat tire and a church member drives up just as you’re saying ‘Amen’.
It is at those times that we should make a record of God’s providence: write it down in your journal. But not only that, we should also tell others what happened, so that everyone can see and praise God’s goodness.
Because most of the time we don’t see prayer answered so directly, so immediately. Yet it is the same God who answers one as certainly hears the other.
