Five Prayers God Will Always Come Through On:
“He will always answer our prayers when we ask him to do his new covenant work through his word by the Spirit. God has already guaranteed to answer:
- when we pray for forgiveness – I John 1:9
- when we pray to know God better – Eph. 1:15-22; 3:18-19
- when we pray for wisdom (to know how to live for God) – Jas 1:5-6
- when we pray for strength to obey/love/live for God – Eph. 1:15-22; 3:14-15
- when we pray for the spread of the gospel – Luke 10:2; Acts 5; Col. 4″
