14 And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. 15 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, ESV)
The key to prayer is “if we ask anything according to his will.” Many times we ask for things that are contrary to the will of God and therefore we do not receive. How do we know what the will of God is? His will is clearly seen in the Bible. Read it and you will learn His will.
Prayer: Lord, teach me Your ways.
