So often Believers give up or fail to pray, simply because they don’t believe God will answer. The same people who say that “God is good” don’t pray because they don’t believe prayer works. The reality is, if God is good then He wouldn’t just ignore us, right? I mean, that would be rude, wouldn’t it? If we say God is good, then the issue can’t be whether God chooses to listen to our prayers... there must be another false belief that is being believed, the lie that says God can’t hear...
13 I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life. 14 And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him.15 And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for. (1 John 5:13-15, NLT)
The scripture above has been written for your assurance. Know this, God can hear and certainly does give you what you ask for whenever you ask accordingly to His will... that’s the key... to discover His will.
Prayer is not the same as rubbing a magic lamp. God is not a genie. Prayer gives God access to do what He desires (which is always good) in your life and in this world.
