In 2 Kings 4:43, the Lord promises Elisha there will be more than enough. They have twenty loaves of barley bread to feed one hundred men but God promised that it would be enough and that they would even have some leftover. A friend shared this verse with me yesterday along with a promise that if I believe, all I ask for will be given to me, and more. The key to having our prayers fulfilled is praying in God’s will. And to know what God’s will is we MUST read His Word.
I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of him.
1 John 5:14-15
All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
Today I believe that all I ask will be given to me, and even more.
Today I ask for You to give me more of the Holy Spirit. I ask that there be less of me to make more room for Your Spirit.
Today I ask for more of Your wisdom and less of my own wisdom.
Today I ask for more humility and less pride.
Today I ask for more contentment and less anxiety.
Today I ask for Your support in helping me let go of my children. Please increase my faith. I know You love my children even more than I do. I know You are more capable than I to care for them and protect them and guide them as they each become adults.
Thank You for granting me all of these things in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ.
In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
