This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
Pray with the full confidence that God hears you, He is faithful and He is a loving God. God hears all your prayers and He answers all your prayers. When you ask God for something, the answer will be yes, no or wait. The key words here are “according to His will”. Just because you pray and ask God for something does not mean that it is His will for you. You must always pray “according to his will” and ask that His will be done, not yours, for He alone knows His plans for you. No matter what the answer is, know that He has heard your prayer.
You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
When times are tough, when you are struggling, or when things in your life seem stagnant, don’t give up and don’t lose your confidence in God. Wait without giving up, you only fail if you quit, do what God asks of you, finish your race strong, and you will receive what He has promised.
Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
How encouraging to know we serve a God who hears our prayers. Through His love and mercy God promises that when we call on Him and pray to Him, He will listen. Whatever the answer may be, we can be assured that God hears our prayers and know that He will answer them in his own time and way.
Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God. May Your gracious Spirit lead me on level ground.
God loves us so much He gave us commands to obey that lead us towards His goodness and mercy and away from a path that leads to destruction. Having a teachable spirit and a willingness to do God’s will places one in a position to be led by God.
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Jesus Christ.
We don’t always need to change our circumstances, sometimes we just need to change the way we see them. No matter what you are going through keep rejoicing in the Lord, keep praying, and giving thanks to God. Don’t give up on God because he won’t give up on you. Let God have control over your life and he’ll turn your test into a testimony.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Prayer doesn’t have to be full of big, fancy words. Don’t be intimidated by long, loud, eloquent prayers. Pray from your heart, have a conversation with God, and pray knowing and believing that he hears you. If you don’t know how or what to pray, pray for God’s will to be done in your life. God will take it from there.
