“And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight.” 1 John 3:22 NASB
God will answer the prayers of those believers who come confidently into His presence. This confidence comes by keeping His commandments and doing things that please God. The believer who is consistently walking in God’s light and filled with God’s love will obediently follow God’s commands and do things that delight God. This believer will ask for things that are according to God’s will. God will then give him all that he asks.
Lord Jesus, thank You for answered prayers. Help me to obey Your commandments and to bring glory to You by doing what pleases You.
