and your prayers will be answered

Prayer cannot be separated from the rest of your life. There is no such thing as rattling off a quick prayer and then carrying on the way you want to. In John 15:7-8 Jesus tells us that if we remain in Him, we will be given what we pray for. A life of obedience to God is the road to, and the result of, a powerful life of prayer. Obedience to God changes the way you pray. Your prayers do not revolve around your own selfish needs any longer. They don't sound like someone shopping for groceries – "pass this, pass that, do this, help me here". No, your prayers will be about the most important matters on the agenda of your life, namely the glory of God and the building of his kingdom.

Believe me, prayer is a serious matter! Prayer is to speak with the King of the universe. Prayer can be a wondrous adventure if you pray in submission to God's will. If you do, the floodgates of heaven will be open above you night and day, because God hears and answers prayers like these. Go on, take a chance (regularly) at the doors of heaven in the Name of Jesus and see what happens!

Remember: Obedience to God = a powerful life of prayer
