God Listens to My Prayers
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.
God Hears Your Prayer
What a promise! We can know that when we pray, God is going to hear our 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, hope we are praying correctly.
God invites you to come boldly into His presence and make your request to Him. You can pray in confidence because of your intimate 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 strong 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 hearing your prayer is more than God just acknowledging your request. You know that when God hears your prayer; He answers. 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 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 again.
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
Confess this With me
- 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,
You can approach God in prayer with confidence knowing He will hear and answer your prayer.
Because of the major winter storm that has hit us here in Texas, we are delaying the launch of our partner ministry. Although I haven’t lost power, I haven’t had internet access. If you have lost power during this storm, please know I am praying for you. If you are in another part of the country that hasn’t been affected by this winter storm, please pray for those without heat and power.
Can you name a time when God specifically answered your prayer? Share in the comments below.
