Benefit of the Doubt

Sometimes, when a friend tells a doubtful story, we decide to give him “the benefit of the doubt.”  It’s an expression that means we will believe him on the basis of his past performances.

When we pray, how often do we give God the benefit of the doubt?  Isn’t it something we could do more often?  After all, it surely is not the first favor we have asked.  And do we realize there’s a waiting time for a prayer to be answered?

A child whose requests are immediately answered becomes spoiled.  Our heavenly Father knows this and more.  We don’t, at times.
