sweet promises: prayer

God hears the prayer of His children.

And this is the confidence
that we have in him, that,
if we ask any thing
according to his will,
he heareth us:

1 John 5:14

He heareth us,
so let us ask.

Ask, and it shall be given you; 
seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Matthew 7:7

yet ye have not,
because ye ask not.
Ye ask, and receive not,
because ye ask amiss,
that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

James 4:2-3

There’s sugar in
the bitter medicine
of rebuke here –
implied is a promise.

If you ask,
and ask not amiss,
you will have,
you will receive.

“At the blessed hour of prayer,
trusting Him we believe,
that the blessings we’re needing
we’ll surely receive.
In the fullness of this trust,
we shall lose every care

What a balm for the weary!
O how sweet to be there!” 🎼
