Many people say that they do not know HOW to pray. WHOM to pray to (Jesus or God), and then they complain that their prayers are not answered. The writer of Hebrews writes in Hebrews 11:6 “Without faith it is impossible to please God. Whomever goes to God must believe that He IS and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him,” those who earnestly seek Him.
If you do not believe that God exists and if you do not believe that He is hearing your prayer and that He will answer your prayer then you will receive nothing. The apostle James wrote in James 1:5 “If any man needs wisdom let him ASK OF GOD who gives to all men freely” but you have to pray IN FAITH, BELIEVING that you will receive what you asked or else you will receive nothing. If you pray you must pray BELIEVING.
If you don't believe that God exists and that He is hearing your prayer YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME, you are praying into fresh air and you will receive fresh air, you will receive NOTHING. You have to EARNESTLY SEEK HIM and then you will find Him. He will reward you, He will answer your prayer but you have to BELIEVE.
Do you BELIEVE when you pray?
May Jesus bless you.
