This is the confidence that we have in coming into God’s presence, that if we ask anything that is in line with his will, he hears us. We can speak to God freely about anything on our hearts. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we receive answers to whatever we have asked him for in prayer. 1 John 5:14-15, Word Come Alive Paraphrase
Has your desperate prayer remained unanswered? Have you prayed, yet you seem to get no response or movement? So, what’s up with that?
Followers of Christ know for certain our prayers are heard. Jesus’ delay is never due to indifference, or preoccupation, or an inability to act. His purpose is to develop your faith in Him and Him alone – until you display His glory. So stop doubting Him. He has heard your prayer, and He knows exactly how and when to answer it. He is always on time.
