Prayer 2021 - September 3 - Prayer and God's Will pt 1

Scripture For Today:

Romans 1:10

 “…in my prayers at all times; and I pray that now at last, by God’s will, the way may be open for me to come to you.”

Prayer and God’s Will pt 1

Over these next few sessions, I want to discuss with you the subject of God’s will in prayer. We know that it is God’s will that we receive answers to prayer and that we bear much prayer fruit as we pray according to the Word of God. But, it is absolutely true that God wants us to have confidence in His Presence when we pray according to His Word (which is His will). Amen!

First John 5:14-15 says, 

“And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, he hears us; And if we know He hears us, whatsoever we ask, we KNOW that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.”

Can you say, “AMEN” to that?  Praise God!

Another translation of First John 5:14 says, “And this is the BOLDNESS we have toward Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us…”

If you are like most Christians, our minds immediately grasp that phrase, “…according to His will…” That is why many people will pray, “Lord, do this that or the other thing, IF IT BE THY WILL…”

But that is NOT Faith. That is doubt and unbelief in its rawest form!

God’s Word IS His Will!

Sometimes we pray for things which we already have God’s Word that specifies His desire for us – and we KNOW exactly what His Word says – so that means it is HIS WILL. Amen!

So it is 100% incorrect to insert the expression, “IF it be thy will…” into our prayers when God’s Word specifically says what His will is in the situation we are praying about! Amen!

To say, “If it be they will” when you already know what God’s Word says, is confessing before God and man (and the devil) that you doubt God’s Word. You don’t really believe it!  Shocking, isn’t it?

Many of you have been praying that way for years and years. And you’ve been 100% wrong for all of those years, too. 

And when you pray, “if it be they will” – your prayer will not work. Period. Remember, God’s Word is God’s will. God’s Word is the revealed will of God. Therefore, if you know what the Word says, you know what the will of God is.

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.
