Some people believe I am naïve and others doubt when I say that every request I take to the Lord in prayer, I take to Him knowing He will answer me, I believe God knows my request before I speak it, and already has it worked it.
I am not saying God answers my request the way I ask Him each time, but He teaches me through His answers that He is right always, He sees the end from the beginning and knows the outcome for each prayer, for us all.
When I come to the Lord in prayer, I am not double minded in my asking, I do not doubt God will answer or that God’s answer is the best answer. I simply ask and believe in faith that God’s ways are perfect.
I ask God for healing, for help, for hope, peace, wisdom, strength to make a clear path for the day, for protection and provision for abundance in life because God is our creator and sustainer, He is our healer, our provider, our strength, our wisdom, our deliverer, He is our everything, He is our LORD.
I do come boldly to His throne, I do not come demanding or dictating to God how to answer my prayer, I ask my Father in faith and trust Him.
That is what faith is, believing that whatever God says and does in our lives is right, we might not like our present condition, or the events going on around us, but we can trust God to give us the grace to see us through, to hold us up when we are weak, keep us humble when we are strong, too carry us when we can go no further.
Let us not waiver in our faith, let us ask of God for wisdom to help us through each moment of every day, let us boldly approach His throne in confidence knowing God is for us.
Let us walk in complete faith in our Lord and Savior, and not waiver as we press on, let us stand firm and not be tossed upon the waves of life, ask God to increase our faith and help us in our unbelief
God has already given us everything, we must learn to give everything back to Him, trust Him always, and let Him lead us through this life into eternity.
God’s word says;
“He also said to them: “Suppose one of you has a friend and goes to him at midnight and says to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, because a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I don’t have anything to offer him.’ Then he will answer from inside and say, ‘Don’t bother me! The door is already locked, and my children and I have gone to bed. I can’t get up to give you anything.’ I tell you, even though he won’t get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his friend’s shameless boldness, he will get up and give him as much as he needs. “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?”Luke 11:5-13 CSB
“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens — Jesus the Son of God — let us hold fast to our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in every way as we are, yet without sin. Therefore, let us approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in time of need.” Hebrews 4:14-16 CSB
“Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God — who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly — and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith without doubting. For the doubter is like the surging sea, driven and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord, being double-minded and unstable in all his ways.”James 1:5-8 CSB
