Priscilla Shirer: When We Ask, God Answers

By Movieguide® Contributor

Actress Priscilla Shirer gives an important reminder that you can never ask too much of God. 

Shirer wants to remind people that God cares for us in a way that is difficult to understand. He does not give half-hearted support or only show up when it’s convenient for Him, He has genuine care for every single soul. 

“The Bible says, ‘God is not a man, that He should lie’ (Numbers 23:19). When He tells us to [reach out]… He’s trying to involve us in His blessing. He’s wanting us to experience the fullness of our inheritance in Christ. He’s using a prayer transaction to build trust and relationship,” she wrote. 

One of the wonderful things about God, Shirer points out, is that because he is greater than we are, no apprehension or worry in our lives is too great for Him to handle. Amazingly, He cares about the small things too, so when you bring something to God in prayer He never shys away. 

“Asking of God doesn’t make us pushy, not according to the Bible,” Shirer explains. “Nor, of course, does it mean He’ll give us whatever we want. But when we take Him up on His invitation to ask for what we need – both the big things and the small things – one of the greatest things He gives us is the opportunity to recognize exactly where our help is coming from.” 

“When we request and He answers, we are enabled to know beyond any doubt that He was the One working in our experience,” she added.

Keeping the fullness of God in mind, Shirer also reminds us that God will do things that we could never think of. When we ask for Him to move in our lives, He will often answer our prayers in ways we could have never imagined. 

Shirer has portrayed the power of prayer multiple times through movies such as WAR ROOM and OVERCOMER.
