Prayer Tip: The Basis for Answered Prayer

“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?  Jesus!

            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…   Isa. 43:1 “…I have called you by name; you are mine.”; John 15:16 “…I chose you..”

in Christ.

Are you a child of God?

Pray on that basis to your heavenly Father.  Matthew 7:11  “..how much more will your Father …give what is good to those who ask Him.”
