As we go through this topic of prayer, the Why because God says to ask and to speak in His Word ( the Bible). What do we ask for(anything that’s according to His will 1John 5:14-15). Which is very much more than we can ask, think, or imagine (Ephesians 3:19-20 note knowing Love ❤️ of Christ before verse 20) Then, How are we to ask ??? In faith (believing what His Word ( His will) declares. Asking In the name of Jesus( as presenting all that Jesus has done and His Grace has provided through His death, burial, and resurrection). And our identification with Him in it All (Galatians 2:20). Obviously a lot to unload in all these statements. But to have effective, confident, faith filled prayer there are many components to it  we won’t cover them all, but let’s start with your sonship in Christ…In receiving Him asLord we need to understand the reality of Galatians 2:20. I am, you are totally identified with Christ and thus 100% Gods kids and as a loving Heavenly Father He has made all good things available to us to be received by believing faith…. I.e. we are His kids and everything in the refrigerator and pantry and house is available to us…. To be continued…Blessings and Love ❤️ to All!!!🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼☝️👍😊😄😆🤔💥💥💥

1 John 5:14-15 New King James Version
Confidence and Compassion in Prayer
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

Ephesians 3:19-20. Amplified Bible
19 and [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ which far surpasses [mere] knowledge [without experience], that you may be filled up [throughout your being] to all the fullness of God [so that you may have the richest experience of God’s presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself].

20 Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us,

Pastor Mike
