Mar 10:46-52, 49 And Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” And they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take heart. Get up; he is calling you.

Misery drives men to seek help, and the object of mercy is He who calls them out of it.

When you pray, God hears and uses even your obstacles as encouragements to bring you closer to Him. Desperate prayers gets His attention, no wonder He gave the disciples the parable of the persistent widow. He used it to encourage them to always pray and not lose heart (Luke 18:1).

Thanks for sharing. When you pray God listens. He then waits for you to move with faith and claim what you have prayed for. Prayer is step 1 of faith, action is second. Good day.
