Prayer 2021 - April 16 - Ask and You Shall Receive pt 4

Scripture For Today:

 

1 Chronicles 17:25


“You, my God, have revealed to your servant that you will build a house for him. So your servant has found courage to pray to you…”


Ask and You Shall Receive pt 4

Today, I just want to wrap up our study of “Ask and You Shall Receive.” This is such an important part of Christian doctrine, I just feel it is important for me to summarize what we have been studying before we move on to something else.

In Luke 10:19, Jesus refers to serpents and scorpions as being evil spirits. But when we ask God for something good, He does not give us something bad in response to our prayer requests. No. He gives us good things. And He will give the Holy Spirit, which is definitely “a good thing,” to those who ask Him. Amen! We have a loving Heavenly Father. Praise the Lord!

We discussed several principles Jesus taught about prayer. We saw that we are to pray, but we are not to pray as the hypocrites do. Or pray as the heathens do. We saw that our prayers to the Heavenly Father will not work with unforgiveness in our heart. If we have the slightest bit of ill will or bitterness or resentment against someone else, our prayers will be hindered until we forgive others.

We discussed that we should not pray selfishly. Certainly, we should pray for our needs to be met. The Word instructs us to pray and ask God for the things we have need of, and we “shall receive” the things we ask for. But we should not pray only for ourselves and our loved ones. We should pray for others as well.

We have also seen that the Bible also declares that we must have our priorities right in order for “all things to be added unto us.” We do that by “seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness…and all these things shall be added unto you.”  That was in Matthew 6:33.

What Jesus said about prayer and about our prayer life is vitally important for us to understand and obey if we are to have a successful prayer life. I just wanted to take today to quickly provide  you with a summary of what could be called, the most important part about prayer, which is believing your receive what you ask for when you pray.

I want to pray with you right now that you will take what we  have studied and apply it to your prayer life. Take what we have learned and grow deeper in your prayer life, more successful in your prayer life and that you are able to impact and help more people through your prayers. Amen!

Bob Thibodeau

Pastor Robert Thibodeau has been in online ministry since starting his own podcast in mid-2009. Within about six months, he was offered a slot on nationwide Christian AM radio. His broadcast was heard in four major markets for one year.

He then started what today is called, "Evangelism Radio" and went live 24/7 beginning on October 4, 2010 and continues to this day. Now with over 50 broadcasters submitting programming on a weekly basis, Evangelism Radio has listeners in over 160 nations and all 50 states. It was also ranked by Shoutcast.com as #1 in the world in the Christian Talk genre on many occasions.

In late 2017, Pastor Bob began an interview style podcast called "The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast." On this podcast, Pastor Bob interviews Christians from various walks of life on how they use their Faith to achieve success. Authors, recording artists, business CEO's, non-profit leaders and pastors and ministers frequent the show and provide amazing insight to build your faith. In only 3 years time, The KCR Podcast has published almost 900 episodes and Pastor Bob conducted over 700 interviews!

In early 2018, in response to the lack of any Christian themed podcast hosting platform in the market place, Pastor Bob coordinated with the iconic Mark Asquith and his team, with the result being "FaithCasters.net." A "Christian podcast hosting and marketing company created by Christians for Christians."

Due to the immense success Pastor Bob has achieved in the online ministry world, he is often asked by others "How to start a podcast." Not wanting to refer Christian brothers and sisters back into the world for help in establishing a Christian themed podcast, he started to develop the "Podcast-Training" platform offered through our ministry. He conducts training on a weekly basis to assist others in the development of their own personal podcast as well as ministry related podcasts that can air on Evangelism Radio.

Now, he has placed all of this information under one website location, "Podcasters for Christ." This makes it easier for other Christians to find the services they need in one spot rather than having to visit several different websites.
