It is by prayer we can keep in communion with Christ, and through prayer of faith, we can hear from him by the Spirit.” It is through that, we can ask of anything in His name.
To ask in Christ's name is to plead his merit and intercession, and to depend upon that plea. It is to aim at his glory and to seek this as our highest end in all our prayers. No privilege is greater than that of approaching God in the name of his Son. No blessings of salvation can be conferred on any who do not come in his name. So we must be clothed with humility in our asking.
We are allowed Liberty in our asking. We can ask of anything that is good and proper for us, but we must know what to ask for.
What to Ask God for:
Mouth of wisdom
Assistance in your work
Power to work miracles when there is occasion
The success of the ministry in the conversion of souls
His Leadership in our Lives
Preservation out of the hands of your enemies
His advice and direction, not only when a difficult case is upon us, but in every case
Success, as those who know the race is not to the swift.
Acknowledge God with submission and thankfulness
In every thing, we must make our requests known. Our eye must always be towards God. Those that put themselves under divine guidance swill always have the benefit of it.
Key Things to Remember:
(2) Ask in his name.
(3) Come with a spirit of complete submission to the Father's will, that "Thy will be done."
