Praying According to God’s Will

Man’s highest aim should be to bring glory to God (1 Corinthians 10:31), and this includes praying according to His will:

  • First, we must ask for wisdom. ”If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him” (James 1:5).
  • In asking for wisdom, we must also trust that God is gracious and willing to answer our prayers: ”But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt” (James 1:6; see also Mark 11:24). So, praying according to the will of God includes asking for wisdom (to know the will of God) and asking in faith (to trust the will of God).
  • Finally, all requests granted are generated from a heart supernaturally regenerated therefore aligned and constantly yielded with and to God’s will: “And this is the confidence that we have toward Him, that if we ask anything according to His will He hears us” (1 Jn. 5:14).  Therefore we have the calming assurance, whether the answer is ‘no’, ‘yes’ or ‘be patient’ that the specific answer is God’s will, God’s best for me and best for all other parties/issues concerned.
