Confidence in Prayer

29 03 2015

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. – 1 John 5:14

When we approach God in prayer, we don’t need to be timid or doubtful about the outcome of our time with Him, but we can be confident and filled with Faith.  How?  By asking God to move in ways that are aligned with “His will”.

Most of the time, our prayers are driven by our will and the things that we want.  However, a disciple has embraced the will of God as their own, and this surrender to the will of God shapes everything in their lives, especially their prayer lives.

The closer we are to God, the more He begins to unveil His will to us.  The more clearly we see His will for the world, the more confidence we can have in praying for things that we know are on His heart.  And if we know that these things are “His will”, not just ours… then we know that God is going to hear and act in response to our prayer.
