Would you be excited if I told you that there were prayers you could pray and be 100% guaranteed that God would say yes?
Would you be less excited if I told you the lottery is 100% not on the list?
Last week we talked about Solomon, Jehoshaphat, and Nehemiah all of whom prayed with power for God's aid. Solomon prayed that God would uphold the line of David (as he promised). Jehoshaphat prayed that God would hear his prayer from in front of his sanctuary (as he promised) and rescue them. Nehemiah prayed that God would rescue, regather and restore the people to their land (as he promised). All of these prayers were heard and answered. Why? Because they were prayed inside the will of God.
When you think of "the will of God" do you feel confused?
