Want Your Prayers Answered? by kpakpandoN(m): 6:51pm On Jul 15, 2021
Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us what the contents of our prayers should be in the Matthew 6:9-13. We must draw some eternal lessons from this passage. One, we must acknowledge the Fatherhood of God if we want to receive answers to our prayers. Jesus Christ said "…it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs." Matthew 15:26. Who are the dogs? The Bible in Revelation 22:15 says:
“For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”

Secondly, we must learn that only those who honour the name of the Lord can have their prayers answered. The Bible says:
“… for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.”
“1 Samuel 2:30”

Finally, every child of God must seek that the will of God be done in this perverse generation. For this reason, Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 12:1-2:
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Children of God who want to be successful in life must ensure that they are not influenced by anything contrary to the word of God. If you want your prayers answered, abide in Christ and let His word abide in you, as recorded in John 15:7:
“If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”

Psalm 66:18 also says:
“If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:”

Abide in Jesus, turn your back on sin completely, exercise your faith James 1:6 and your prayers will surely be answered.
