James 4:3 (KJV) Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

David prayed that God should give him a car, but his motive was not in alignment with God’s counsel; his desire to have a car was furnished by deep-seated pride within Him. God wanted to give him a car, but God first sent sound teachings to purge him from his wrong mindset. Fortunately, he repented and was promoted in life.

The truth is that many pray sentimental prayers a lot of the time. They think God owes them a breakthrough because they have been through so much in life, but there are people passing through much worse.

When we pray, we must pray in line with the word of God; remind God of His promises (see Isaiah 43:26). Praying this way ensures that we never pray amiss but pray according to God’s will.

Those who do not pray in line with God’s word usually end up waiting and waiting for answers, and may finally conclude that God doesn’t want to answer them.

We might not always expect God to act because of pity on us, but we can always expect Him to honor His word.

Next time you want to pray about certain issues, find out what the word says about them and take that to God. God will always honor His word. Make sure that the word purifies your motive.

Prayer: Teach me your ways o Lord that I may walk in your truth and pray according to your will always. Amen.
—Esiri Amurun & SD Abraham
