1 John 5:14-15
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, 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 the petitions that we have asked of Him.
-There are three key words in this passage ‘confidence’, ‘ask’ and ‘will’. Confidence indicates boldness in presenting our petitions to God with the faith that He will accomplish them according to His word. We are reminded to pray that when we ask we may receive, when we seek we may find & when we knock it will be opened to us. In prayer, the will of the Father is critical for sometimes we ask amiss & our requests are not granted. The Holy Spirit makes intercession for us in line with the will of the Father that we may receive our petitions according to His word. He helps & directs us in His word & reveals His will to us as we walk in it. Apostle Paul gives us a lead that His will is giving thanks always despite what we might be going through (1 Thes 5:18).
Teach us to do Your will & to pray according to Your purpose, Father. Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. You are the God of peace, grant us & our country Your peace that surpasses all understanding. Lead all our leaders & citizens in Your wisdom, that we may stay united despite our political differences . You are the same God yesterday, today & forever, we thank You for all things. Amen
