God Hears and Answers My Prayer
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.
1 John 5:14-15
When You Pray
When you pray, you release the power of heaven into the world around you. When you pray, according to God’s will, you have the confidence that your prayer is heard and answered by your Heavenly Father.
What a promise! You can know that when you pray, God will hear your prayer.
Few of us would say we pray with that kind of 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, hope He answers, and hope we are praying correctly.
Pray in Confidence
God invites you to come boldly into His presence and bring your request to Him. You can pray in confidence because of your relationship 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 firm in asking for the things He has promised.
Jesus had absolute confidence that God heard His prayers. Because you are His follower, you can have that same confidence.
God Hears and Answers
When God hears your prayer it is more than God just acknowledging your request. You know that when God hears your prayer, He answers. It is like the King who listens to the request of his servant and responds. When God hears your prayer, He answers your prayer.
You have the full assurance that as you bring your requests to the Lord, He not only hears your prayer but answers as well.
Let’s look at 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 in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him. – 1 John 5:14-15
Make these confessions.
- God invites me to come boldly into His presence.
- I confidently bring my request to God.
- As I pray according to His will, I know He answers.
- I know God answers my prayer.
In Jesus Name,
Through Christ, you can approach God in prayer with confidence, knowing He will hear and answer your prayer.

What is one prayer God has answered? (Share in the comment section below)
We had a family visit with my Dad and his wife, and God answered my prayer that it would go well, even though we were stressed about it.
I believe in the power of the prayer, but my prayers are answered on God’s schedule, not mine. I have friends that get discouraged when their prayers aren’t immediately answered. They focus on their will, not God’s.
Thank you for the inspiration
