As we continue to look at unseen things (2 Cor. 4:18), and realize more and more that our invisible God works in response to our prayers, then we should take advantage of the privilege of seeking Him daily, bringing before Him our daily needs and the needs of others. I want to challenge you to do this, and keep a record of the needs you have brought before Him each day, so that you can look back and see the things He has done! “You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.” (James 4:2-3) I have found that if I add the phrase, “if it be according to Your will”, it helps to eradicate wrong motives, and helps to weed out asking for things that are just selfish. Did you know that if you ask anything according to His will, He hears you? And did you know that if you know that He hears you, then you will definitely HAVE the request you have asked of Him?! Just read 1 John 5:14-15 for confirmation of this!
Here’s a great prayer I found while reading in my daily Bible reading this week (and if you pray this prayer, you WILL receive it, because it is according to His will!) in Exodus 33:13: . . . . “let me know Your ways Lord, so that I may understand You more fully. . . ” This is a prayer of Moses, a mighty man of God. May we all pray this prayer!
