How to get prayers answered every time

Updated on October 2, 2012

Ask rightly to get the answer

If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. John 15:7-8

Do you see the key here?

It is two parts.

Part one: If you remain in me means we are to remain in a relationship with Jesus. So instead of asking for a new iPod or a raise ask Jesus to bless you with a deeper relationship with Him. Believe me, it is a lot more fulfilling than a dead piece of metal or a raise that the government gets most of the money in taxes anyway.

I believe that life is given us so we may grow in love, and I believe that God is in me as the sun is in the color and fragrance of a flower - the Light in my darkness, the Voice in my silence. Helen Adams Keller

Part two: If my words abide in you. Now how can Jesus’ words abide in you if you never read your Bible, listen to sermons either in a church or on line (I like audio sermon or oneplace.com) or join in Bible study groups? That’s like a dog asking for air while staying under the water. He has to be where there is air to receive air. So too it is with you. If you want Jesus’ words to abide in you, read them, study them and here is the most difficult part: obey them. Think of it like this: You are lost in a strange city (I have been in many strange cities ha ha) and you ask a stranger for directions to get to your hotel. The stranger gives you the directions but you just stand there and keep asking you’re the directions. Sounds kinda stupid doesn’t it. Well, how stupid does it sound if when reading Gods word He is directing you in some aspect of your life you are asking His help in and you don’t take the action He is guiding you in but keep asking for His help?

Prayer: Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) please bless me with the opportunity to grow in our heavenly love affair and the strength, wisdom, patience and recourses to follow Your divine chosen path for my life. I ask this in the name of the great Shepherd, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

      Very true, that we keep asking for direction while refusing to follow. The abiding relationship is the key to the way we respond to Him. Thanks for the clear presentation.
