Series: The Do Nots of Praying

Prayer should be for things that are according to God’s will and it should please Him. It should not be unscriptural.

When we pray for things that are wrong according to the Bible, God may not answer it; the devil may sometimes answer them. For e.g. Asking God’s help in marrying an unbeliever.

When we ask God for something, we should see what the word of God says about it.

If we ask God for something that is not according to His will, sometimes God may not answer directly but may instead ask us to read your Bible.

It’s important to know your Bible before praying so that you know the things that you should pray for and believe the things that you should believe.

One good way of praying is to find scriptures and praying that over our lives.

Pray for the things that the scriptures allow you to pray for and ask God’s help in understanding His will from the scriptures.

We also should obey God’s word. One of the reasons we don’t receive an answer for our prayers is because we don’t obey His word.

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

So let us pray according to His will and read the word to know His will for us.
