January 10

The Rolling Stones said it best:

“You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need”

I hear it said often, “I’m praying for you.” You might say it yourself, and it is important that we intercede for others, especially those who are weak in their faith, or those who don’t have faith at all. Take a look at the people praying for you, if they aren’t saved by Jesus, their prayers are a waste of breath. Over and over again, the Bible says to ask anything according to his will and he will answer you. My question to you is this; have you sought forgiveness for your sins before making your request? Another point, if Jesus isn’t your Savior, God can’t hear you, he is holy, and you are filthy. I can tell you with confidence that every prayer you pray will not be answered with a yes, because we often pray for things that are not within his will for us, or contrary to what’s written in God’s Word. Don’t stop praying, every now and then you will hit the bullseye with your prayer, but unless your prayer for that trip to Hawaii is to reach the people who are strung out on Ice, or for those lost in their native culture, your prayer is coming from your passion, rather than God’s will. 

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. 1 John 5:14-15

We know that God does not listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does his will, God listens to him. John 9:31

You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. James 4:3
