God loves you and wants you to bring your burdens and cares to Him in prayer.
Two things can keep God from giving us what we ask in prayer. The first is sin – breaking God’s law and acting outside His will. Sin erects a barrier between us and God. Until that barrier is torn down, God can’t answer our prayers. This is why the first step you need to take is to turn by faith to Jesus Christ and ask Him to forgive your sins and come into your life. When we do that, the barrier of sin is removed – and God hears our prayers.
The second thing that keeps God from giving us what we ask for is if we are seeking something that isn’t His will. God loves us and knows what is best for us – and because of this, He won’t give us anything that isn’t His will.
Real prayer begins with a personal relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ. Are you ready to take this step?
