“Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or His ear dull, that it cannot hear; But your iniquities have separated you from your GOD; your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.”
1 John 5:14
“And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He hears us.”
The Bible reminds us that GOD hears and He answers prayers. Prayers that line up with GOD’s will are heard so much so that we can expect His attention and His best response when we pray in accordance to His will.
What then is the will of GOD? Simply put, it is that which aligns perfectly with His Word, and with His character. -In order to avoid blockades to prayer, it helps to know prayer’s purpose. JESUS explains it wonderfully … John 15:7 “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” -As we come to know and love JESUS, our prayers will be increasingly transformed. This will change how, why, and what we ask of Him. We will love what He loves, hate what He hates, and desire what He desires.
FATHER GOD, thank You that In CHRIST JESUS You hear and answer our prayers. May Your SPIRIT daily direct and guide us to ensure that our prayers are in accordance to Your will. In the wonderful Name of JESUS we pray. Amen!
Praying For You,
Pastor Wally & Sister Mattie
