“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6).
How do you pray with confidence? How do you know if God will answer your prayers? Four key words answer this question:
Abiding is the key to successful praying. In John 15:7, Jesus states,
“If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, ask whatever you will and it shall be done for you.”
Colossians 3:16 says,
“Let the Word of Christ richly dwell within you.”
Abiding means you want to stay as close to Christ as possible.
