BREAKTHROUGH PRAYER

May 11, 2016

Wednesday

 

1 John 5:14-15

 

 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: 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 what we asked of him.

 

 

LESSON

 

Prayer is another expression of the believer’s trust in Jesus Christ and “confidence” toward God. To do something “in the name of” another means to act on the authority of that person. “Prayer is not a battle, but a response; its power consists in lifting our wills to God, not in trying to bring his will down to us .Jesus teaches us to pray: ‘Thy will be done,’ not, ‘Thy will be changed.

“He heareth us.” This is universally true. He is more ready to hear than we are to ask. God then often hears and answers our prayers, although it may not seem to be so at the time of our entreaty. Or He may hear and answer, but not in the way we desire. Besides, we may have answers to our prayers, although we know neither the time nor the manner of them. The very exercise is good. Still, we may have manifest answers to our prayers. If we mark the providence of God we shall discover that He has heard us. But it is in eternity we shall see all the answers to all our prayers.
