John 15:7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
Jesus gave us two important keys to answered prayer here. If we want to ask what we will and have it done for us, we will have to do what He said.
- Abide (remain) in me. He is talking about praying out of a place of fellowship with God, about being led by the Spirit while you pray. The Holy Spirit is our best help in prayer.
- My Word abides (remains) in you. To be effective in prayer and to pray the will of God, we must know the Word of God and pray according to His word where His thoughts and ideas and will are expressed clearly.
Except for slightly elevated temps in the early A.M.’s, Ryan’s been doing well the past several days. And, he’s excited to have his brother home for the next few days!
Sleep well tonight…
