“He who believes in me…if you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.”  John 14:12-14

What is the basis for answered prayer?

  • It’s not that we have done good things and avoided doing bad things.
  • It’s not our spiritual offerings and sacrifices…religious activities.  Ps. 51:16
  • It’s not our office/position/title as leaders and influencers.

It is because of who we are…

“But to all who …believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God…”  John 1:12

…and whose we are…

“…I have called you by name; you are mine.” Isa. 43:1

“…I chose you..” John 15:16

…in Christ.

Are you a child of God?

Pray on that basis to your heavenly Father.

“..how much more will your Father …give what is good…” Matthew 7:11
