Prayer 2021 - November 5 - How to Pray According to God's Will pt 4

Scripture For Today:

2 Kings 19:14

“Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it. Then he went up to the temple of the Lord and spread it out before the Lord.”

How to Pray According to God’s Will pt 4

We have been studying about praying according to God’s Will. Do you want to see something that a lot of Christians miss?  Stick with me…

John 15:7 says you will have whatsoever you will, but only under a special condition. Do you remember we covered this a few days ago? That condition is “If you abide in Jesus and His Word abides in you.”  Amen!  When God’s Word abides in you, that means it is ALIVE in you.

When God’s Word is ALIVE in you, then you absolutely know what God’s will is in any matter. His Word IS His Will – we studied that a week or so ago. 

So, when you ask something according to the Word of God, then you are automatically asking for it according to God’s Will. Amen!  That means you do not have to pray, “if it be thy will…” nonsense. 

For example, we know it is God’s will that the lost be saved, right? How do we know that? Because God’s Word tells us so. We can read it in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Isn’t that what it says?

We also can read in 2 Peter 3:9 that “The Lord is not willing that ANY should perish, but that ALL should come to everlasting life.” 

There are a host of other scriptures that say basically the same thing. Right?

So, you do not have to wonder; you do not have to pray or ask God, “Lord, if is your will to save my husband or daughter or grandchild – then please save them.”  No – we already KNOW it is His will to save them. You don’t have to pray, “If it be thy will” to save ANYBODY!

You absolutely KNOW it is His Will to save EVERYBODY because we have His Word on it, right?

Now, back to 1 John 5:14, “and this is the confidence that we have in HIM, that if we ask anything according to His will, he hears us…”

Let that soak in for a moment…

“This is the confidence we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

Did God hear you when you prayed for your loved one to be saved? Yes.

Is it God’s will for every person to be saved? Yes.

Didn’t you pray according to God’s Word for your loved one to be saved? Yes.

If that’s the case, then did you pray according to God’s WILL for your loved one to be saved?

ABSOLUTELY YES! 

Then you should have the CONFIDENCE that HE HAS HEARD YOU and that, what? 

1 John 5:15 “and if we KNOW He has heard us, whatsoever we ask, we KNOW that WE HAVE the petition we have desired of Him.”

In other words, if you ask according to the Word, it is according to God’s Will and He has heard you and He has GUARANTEED that YOU RECEIVE WHAT YOU ASK FOR!

Oh, I could go on and on with this topic… over in Mark 11:22-24…but we are all out of time for today…

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.
