1 John 5:14-15 (NKJV) Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
Boldness = “Come boldly before the throne!”
Confidence in Him, not in ourselves!
Speak the language of faith, not fear! Because God doesn’t respond to fear!
Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV) But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Faith can never go past your question!
Our confidence comes from asking according to God’s Will…
His Will is His Word! The two flow and do not violate one another!
Learn to pray God’s Word and you will know His will!
Pray the sermons/messages you hear also…
Romans 10:17 (NKJV) So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Mix the Word with faith…
Hebrews 4:2 (NKJV) For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.
If you know His Word, you will know His will…
Mark 1:40-41 (ESV) And a leper came to him, imploring him, and kneeling said to him, “If you will, you can make me clean.” 41 Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand and touched him and said to him, “I will; be clean.”
Once you know the will of God (which is the Word of God), you will pray confident prayers!
Too many people are praying in darkness; thus the Word of God “enlightens” you…
Psalms 119:105 (NKJV) Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.
Psalms 119:130 (NKJV) The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.
God hears us
God listens to faith-led prayers, prayed in accordance to His will…
1 John 5:14 (NKJV) Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
Get to know the Word of God and you will be praying the will of God…
Salvation of the lost…
2 Peter 3:9 (NKJV) The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
John 3:16 (NKJV) For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Mark 16:15-16 (NKJV) And He said to them, ”Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
Isaiah 53:5 (NKJV) But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.
And we KNOW He hears us!
How do we know He hears us? By praying according to His will (which is His Word)!
1 John 5:15 (NKJV) And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
NOTICE what happens to prayer warriors who pray the Will of God… WE HAVE (receive) THE PETITIONS THAT WE HAVE ASKED OF HIM!
Ask in faith believing…
Know His Word and you will know His will…
Pray by faith; not by sight!
Pray in the spiritual realm, not the natural realm!
You know the will of God, so quit expecting BAD things to happen!
DON’T NULLIFY YOUR PRAYERS WITH DOUBT!
Matthew 21:21-22 (NKJV) So Jesus answered and said to them,“Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. 22 And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
James 1:6-7 (CEV) But when you ask for something, you must have faith and not doubt. Anyone who doubts is like an ocean wave tossed around in a storm. 7 If you are that kind of person, you can’t make up your mind, and you surely can’t be trusted. So don’t expect the Lord to give you anything at all.
