Prayer 2021 - May 15 - The Prayer of Petition pt 6

Scripture For Today:


2 Chronicles 7:15

“Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.”

The Prayer of Petition pt 6

We have been studying about the Prayer of Petition and how you need to get into the Word of God and do a study about scripture references to your specific situation. Yesterday, we left off with the absolute necessity that you need to make a decision. 

I shared the only time you should pray “if it by they will” in a prayer, is when you are seeking direction. You have a choice to make. You need to make a decision. You have evaluated your options and now it is either choice A or choice B. Perhaps a choice C as well.

In the natural, you may have an inclination to choose the option that may benefit you the most. BUT – is that God’s Will for you in the concept of His Plan for your life? That is where you need to present your prayer and THEN ASK, “If it be thy Will.”

For example, let’s say you are considering whether or not to get married. You may want to ask for God’s direction in a manner of “Lord, is this the person you have planned for me?” Or for a career decision, “Lord, is the path you want me to take?”

But the important part is – if you have arrived at the place where a DECISION NEEDS TO BE MADE – there is a good chance, you have been provided ALL of the information you need to MAKE A DECISION.  


In each and every instance, in all of the examples we have discussed today, you KNOW God’s Word and what the Word says IS GOD’s WILL.


IF YOU KNOW HIS WILL – You know what you must do.

If you know what you must do – and it is based upon His will – you KNOW THE OUTCOME IS WHAT YOU WANT!

If you know the outcome has already been planned according to His will – this is where you come to the place of knowing, “you will receive your petitions from your Father in Heaven!”


It is so important for believers to understand the POWER OF PRAYER. 


Notice I said THINGS. Prayer WILL NOT CHANGE PEOPLE!  Do not get that confused.

PRAYER CHANGES THINGS. NOT PEOPLE.  ONLY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST has the ability to change people, and that is from the inside out! AMEN!

Let’s Pray!

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.
