Jesus made this promise in our passage below. Never underestimate the power of prayer. When you are praying according to God’s will, your prayer is unstoppable. We gravitate immediately toward the latter part of that verse: Ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. We love that, as though God were some sort of genie. But that isn’t the case. We tend to forget about the first part of this verse: If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you . . . If we are walking in fellowship with God and studying the Word of God, then we will start praying according to the will of God. And then we will start seeing our prayers answered. Have a wonderful day abiding in the Lord.
“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” ~~ John 15:7.
I don’t know what your story is; I don’t know all that you’re going through but I want to encourage you today and let you know that there is power in prayer. God doesn’t want you to worry about today or tomorrow; instead He wants you to pray about everything and to make your request known to Him.
Don’t give up if you don’t get what you are praying for immediately and don’t allow the devil to play with your mind neither. As a God that’s all knowing, you have to trust and know that God answers prayer in His perfect timing.
However, until you see your prayer manifest, continue to believe, have faith and to thank God in advance for answering your prayer. That is why Jesus said, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7) Remember, seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and everything else will be added unto you. Don’t lose hope or give up child of God, there is power in prayer.
