Prayers that Always Get Answered

I am not sure who said this, but I believe it to be true:  Prayer is not so much overcoming God’s reluctance as it is tapping into God’s willingness.  See 1 John 5:14-15.  So here’s some prayers that always will get a YES from heaven:

  • May your Kingdom come and your Will be done in my life as it is in the heavens.
  • Be glorified in me and in my situations.
  • Release what is needed to draw my friends or family to Jesus.
  • Make me like Jesus.
  • Fulfill your purpose and your promise for my life.
  • Supply to me all that I need as I purpose to seek first your kingdom and your righteousness.

This is the key to effective prayer…ask God for what He already wants
