Prayer and God's Promise
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.

In this verse we notice that God promises us if we abide (stay) in Him and His words in us, we shall ask what we will and it will be done for us. This verse does not mean we can ask God for a lot of money and God must give us the money we ask for. The main reason people don't get what they ask for is because they are not asking for the right things from God.

Notice there are two rules that we can find in this verse: First we must be born again. We find this in the first five words; If ye abide in me. Now we must remember something here these are Jesus' words. The only way we can abide in Him is if we have already accepted Him as Saviour and Lord. Second we must be following God daily. We can find this in the next six words: and my words abide in you. Now the only way God's word can abide in us is if we are doing daily Bible study and prayer.

If we are following God daily, we will be reading and studing His word and spending time with Him in prayer. By doing this we will know the will of God for our lives and we will be praying that way. When we are doing these things and having faith God will answer our prayers and give us the thing we pray for because we will be praying for the things God wants us to have anyway. Two final things we can learn from this verse is first we need to watch our attitude in prayer, and second to have faith in God.
