Key Words: when ye pray, believe
Why bother to ask if we don’t believe God can do what we ask? The key to answered prayer is believing. Have you ever prayed in faith believing and then watched as God answered your prayer? Remember, you can’t get what you don’t ask for and have faith in God to give. “He calleth His own sheep by name.” Can anyone question that God answers prayer?
A Russian businessman went broke. Despondent and in much despair, he went for a walk in the woods. Sitting down to rest, he itemized all his debts he could remember. In disgust, he wrote at the bottom of the list, “Who could pay all these debts?” The Emperor Nichols was walking through the woods and found the businessman leaning against a tree asleep. He picked up the list of debts and read these words, “Who could pay all these debts?” The Emperor wrote, “I can” and signed his name. He not only could but he did. We have no need that is too great for God to meet. A missionary was once praying in the office of a pastor. He told the Lord he needed a car. He said, “Just any kind of old junker will do.” The pastor got up from his knees and tapped the missionary on the shoulder, saying, “Don’t insult my God that way. He’s not running a junkyard.” Many a Christian prays as if God was only a junk dealer.
