KNOWLEDGE OF THE WORD OF GOD

One important thing we must understand about God on prayer is that God does not just respond to our words emptied of His own Word. Every prayer God would answer must of necessity be found within the context of His Word or will.

Through prophet Isaiah, God said ".. I am God, and there is none like me declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure" (Isaiah 46:9-10). This means, God does His pleasures not mainly our prayers void of His pleasure. This is to say, God will be delighted to answer your prayer when your prayer is within His pleasure. Again Apostle John revealed this heart of God concerning prayers by saying "And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him". (1 John 5: 14-15)

When will God grant us our petitions, prayers or whatever we ask of Him? It is when "we ask any thing according to his will". It is important not to just run to prayers, but you must pray in accordance to God's will. Now God's will is also His word. So to pray according to His will actually means praying according to His Word.
