Pray, Wait, Repeat with Megan DobbsAiring2/9/23Megan Dobbs lives in NYC and is the women’s minister at her church in Queens. If you ask her how she got there, she’d probably say, “Lots of prayers. And lots of waiting.”
A former schoolteacher, Megan felt the pull to move to NYC in 2016. The life lessons Megan learned in the waiting (she didn’t move to NYC until the summer of 2022) were worth it. Her prayer life has developed and soared, as has her confidence in the Lord. Growing up in the church, a preacher’s kid, prayer was something she learned about early on, and it was just what church kids did. They prayed.
But her prayer life took a giant leap forward during this 6-year waiting period, as she felt the shift from a check-in-the-box daily prayer to a conversation and friendship with the Lord.
She learned to listen more and talk less.“If I checked in with someone daily, we wouldn’t get very close or deep in our relationship.” That’s when she realized what she had been doing with God. Checking in. She wanted more.
Megan also shares her heart on unanswered prayer and how she continues to pray while living out her calling. This is a very thought-provoking episode full of hard and good truths. I can’t wait for you to listen. Let us know your thoughts.
