….And God Granted His Request
“Ask and it shall be given unto you” ~ Matthew 7:7.
The mode by which we communicate with God and mostly present our wanted list to God is through prayer.
Sin is not the only reason why prayers might not be answered. Prayers might not be answered if one is asking wrongly.
What one receives depends on what he ask for. One who ask to be given fish will get fish and one who ask to be taught how to catch fish so that he can be independent and also feed others will also be taught how to catch fish.
Going to the Lord in prayer can be likened to going to investors to get them to invest in your business. You must be prepared, know what you want and why you want it. Similarly, you have to be prepared when praying to God and be sure of what you ask for.
King Solomon was specific about what he wanted when he asked God for wisdom and stated his reason why he asked for it (2 Chronicles 1:7-12). The bible also talked about Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 saying; “Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, saying, “I gave birth to him in pain.”Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request”
What are you praying for and who are you praying to? There is only one true God and there are other gods. I do not know the God of whom you pray to but I will like to encourage you that all your prayers be directed to the God of Israel if you want your prayers answered.
