eSeed: The Assurance

Read 1 John 5:14 NIV

A father took his son to a café for dinner. Handing the boy the menu, he asked, “What do you want, son?”

“Pop,” he answered, “I want what you want.”

That’s the secret for answered prayer.

Here’s the permit. Prayer isn’t an intrusion on our part. It’s an invitation on God’s part. He says, “Ask and it will be given you.”

Here’s the limit. “Ask anything according to His will.” And how can we know His will? By combing the Scriptures and communing with the Savior.

Here’s the summit. The Bible says, “We have this assurance in approaching God, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

Prayer: Inspire us, Father, to pray at all times and about everything, that we may receive strength for weakness, wisdom for folly, and help in hazards. Bestow Thy blessings upon us as we seek to lead others to Thee: through Christ our Lord. Amen.
