Today’s Promise

1 John 5:14-15

This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.


If you have ever wondered was God hearing your prayer, today’s promise is for you.

What a promise! You can have confidence that God is going to hear your prayer.

Few of us would say we pray with confidence. For many of us, prayer is difficult and even challenging. So often we come to God with hope instead of faith. We hope He hears, we hope He answers, we hope we are praying correctly.

God invites you to come boldly into His presence and make your request before Him. You can pray in confidence because of the intimate relationship you have with God through faith in Jesus Christ. It is not about how good you are, but about all Christ has done for you. Because of your faith in Christ, you can take God’s word seriously and stand strong in asking for the things He has promised.

Jesus was always confident that God heard His prayers. Because of your relationship with Him, you can have that same confidence as well.

God hearing your prayer is not just God acknowledging your request. God “hearing” your prayer is understanding that when He hears your prayer He will answer. It is like the King who hears the request of his servant and responds. When God hears your prayer, He answers your prayer.

You have the full assurance of God answering your prayer as you lift them up to Him.

Let’s repeat that promise one more time.

This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us inwhatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him. – 1 John 5:14-15

Confess this With me

God has invited me to come boldly into His presence

I can confidently bring any request to God

As I pray according to His will, I know He will answer.

I know that He will answer my prayer.

In Jesus Name,
Amen

You can be confident to approach God, and confident that He will hear and answer your prayer.
