1 John 5:14 (ESV) And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.
Praise was discipled by Precious and they became very close. As time passed Praise observed that whenever Precious prayed, she received answers. Unlike her, Precious did not have to pray and fast all the time to solve a problem. She simply mentioned it to her Heavenly Father or would speak to the situation, and she always got results. When she asked Precious for the secret to this success in prayers, Precious responded: “I have learned to know and pray the will of God”.
The effectiveness of prayer is not always in how long we pray, it is not even in how pressing the need, neither is it in how sincerely we are asking. Prayer becomes effective when God’s will [that we know] becomes the basis of our prayer. Note that His will is expressed in His word.
All that you will ever need was known to God, provided by Him and packaged in His will long before your arrival (birth) here on earth. Not living the will of God is living a failure. Jesus taught us to pray that “your (God) will be done on earth as it is in heaven“. This should be the fulcrum of all our prayers. That was how Jesus prayed (see Matt 26:39).
Go into today determined to spend your time and energy seeking to always walk in God’s will. I recommend that you read the devotionals titled ‘Discerning the will of God’ again. Find out what God already said concerning your needs and ask God from that standpoint. I guarantee you will become more effective.
Prayer: Father, help me always walk in Your will
