Answered / Unanswered Prayer1 John 5:14-15
And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of Him
We are encouraged to pray for all things,but to pray according to God’s Will. In order to pray in God’s Will, we need to be in communication with God, having a relationship with Him, to seek His Will.
He invites us to have a relationship with Him, through Jesus Christ, God’s Son. Jesus paid the price on the cross, giving Victory in His Resurrection, calling us by His Spirit, yet many refuse.
I am afraid many people call out to God in “emergencies” in life, and then get upset when things do not turn out as “they desire”. It is thought that God will answer every call because God loves each person.
God loves each person enough to give Salvation from sin, with the gift of Eternal Life.
If God answered each prayer offered, but a person never prayed for Salvation through the Sacrifice of the Blood of Jesus Christ, that person would still miss the greatest gift of all, Eternal Life with God in Heaven, and according to the Bible, God’s Word, would end up in a real place called Hell according to the Word of God.
One prayer God will always answer with YES, is when we ask Him to forgive our sins, in Jesus Name, and to cleanse us with the Blood of Jesus, and for the Spirit of God to come within us and guide us to live as God desires. When we pray this prayer seriously, God answers immediately.
If someone reads this who has never seriously asked God to forgive you, cleanse you, and direct your life, now is a perfect time. God is always listening and waiting.
This is a life changing experience, for the better, please consider it.
