I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life. And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for. 1 John 5:13-15 (NLT)
He Hears Me
You heard my call. You turned your life over to me. You have come to believe in me. You have eternal life. That’s very good news. I feel such peace knowing that you are my Savior and Lord. You are my God and Heavenly Father. I am your child. I can place all my hope and trust in you. You have my life in your hands. You will lead me now and forever. You have a purpose and a plan for my life. I can rest here in your presence today, tomorrow and forever. Yes, you can rest in me.
I can live in a close and intimate relationship with you. I will walk with you through life. You will hold on to me as I hold on to you. You will draw near to me as I draw near to you. Every day, I can talk to you about anything and everything. I’m not sure how to pray in ways that will please you. I know that you will teach me how to pray. I know that you will bring subjects of prayer to my heart and mind. I know that it will please you that I will come to you to allow you to teach me how to pray. I know that it will please you that I will come to you to rely on you. I know that it will please you that I will ask you for what I need. I am humbly asking you to teach me how to pray in ways that please you. You can be sure that I will teach you how to pray. You are right that I will be pleased that you come to me to rely on me.
I will pray prayers filled with faith and trust in you. I will pray prayers asking you for what I need. I will bring others to you who are in need of prayer. I will believe that you are hearing and will answer my prayers according to your purposes and plans. I am sure that I will not always understand your answers to my prayers. That will not trouble me. I know that you are my Heavenly Father. You are good and kind and gracious to me. Your wisdom is far above mine. Your answers to my prayers of yes, no or not yet will all be according to your will. I trust you with my life. You have a good plan for me. I will follow you wherever you lead me to do whatever you ask of me. That will be very good. Keep coming to meet with me in prayer. Yes Lord, I will.
Lord, thank you for my new and eternal life I have in you. You have made it so I could come to know and believe in you. Guide me to pray prayers that are pleasing to you. Hear and answer my requests for what I need from you. Amen
