It is obviously a great privilege for us to pray, bringing our needs and requests before an omnipotent God. Yet amazingly, Jesus has made it possible for us to approach God with confidence and to come before Him boldly. God hears us when we pray and it is His will that prayer would allow us to know Him more and receive His grace.
Perhaps you haven’t always prayed with the confidence that 1 John 5:14-15 and Ephesians 3:12 speak of. Consider why that is and allow the truth of God’s Word to replace the old mindsets you may have had about prayer.
During this time as we seek God to see a change in our lives and the world around us, let’s be united in prayer for:
1. Salvations – for loved ones in our world who are yet to know Jesus.
2. Our city and nation – let’s believe for our leaders and authorities to lead with Godly wisdom and counsel.
3. Revival – let’s believe together for people to awaken to the things of God and for Him to move mightily across the earth.
THIS IS THE CONFIDENCE WE HAVE IN APPROACHING GOD: THAT IF WE ASK ANYTHING ACCORDING TO HIS WILL, HE HEARS US. AND IF WE KNOW THAT HE HEARS US—WHATEVER WE ASK—WE KNOW THAT WE HAVE WHAT WE ASKED OF HIM.
1 John 5:14-15 (NIV)
IN HIM AND THROUGH FAITH IN HIM WE MAY APPROACH GOD WITH FREEDOM AND CONFIDENCE.
