God so loved us such that He gave His only Son Jesus so that we might be saved. Knowing this, how should we pray? He will answer if we ask and our prayers do make a difference. We should ask God with fervency what His will is for our lives.
“Then Jacob asked him, ‘Please tell me your name.’ But he said, ‘Why is it that you ask my name?’ And there he blessed him. So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, saying, ‘For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life has been delivered.’”
We do not need to see God face to face to know what His will is. By obeying His Word, we will know God and we will know what He desires for us. His will is for us to love Him more than anything in this world and to love others as much as we love ourselves.
Pray always with a fervent heart, asking God for wisdom and strength. He will encourage the weak and provide an escape to those seeking Him with all their might. He will reveal Himself through miracles and wonders. His compassion will not abate from those who believe.
Glory to God in the highest, for He is good. Declare His name on high. Give honor to Him who gives life. Bless His holy countenance. Worship Him always. Pour your heart to Him who listens, for He is our God. Pray without ceasing.
