Scriptures: 1 John 5:14-15, Hebrews 4:16, Isaiah 65:24, 30:18
Prayer is an integral part of finding and living the will of God. In this message, Dr. Merritt explains how prayer prayed in the will of God is guaranteed to accomplish the work of God. The Apostle John in two very short verses teaches what may be the greatest lesson on prayer that is taught in the entire Bible. John simply tells us that when our prayers are focused correctly our Father will answer them positively. God’s will is so important that we are not only to find it, know it, and do it, but we are to pray it. He tells us how the will of God is tied up with our prayers to God.
"God will never answer any prayer outside of His Will, but He will answer every prayer inside of His will. That ought to tell you something. In order to pray in the will of God, you’ve got to seek the will of God, so you can know the will of God, so you will be able to do the will of God." --Dr. Merritt
