Praying Boldly

Now that you begin to see how awe-inspiring your Heavenly Father is, you may be afraid to approach Him in prayer. God’s word tells you that as his child, you are always welcome in his presence. Go to Him…boldly!

“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it” (Hebrews 4:16).

Praying with Humility

Although God wants you to talk to Him at all times, it is important that you approach Him with a humble heart (1 Peter 5:5-6). God opposes human pride, and wants you to be totally dependent upon his resources.

Praying with Confidence

Pray According to God’s Word

Learn the following prayer principles and look up the Scripture reference that goes with each one and then…pray expectantly!

Family Only

God answers the prayers of his children. He also hears and answers prayers of non-Christians when they come to Christ in faith for the forgiveness of their sins (John 16.24).

Abiding Answers

Jesus said that an abiding Christian can be confident in his prayers being heard…and answered according to God’s will.

“Thy Will Be Done”

Jesus modeled the attitude you should have when you come to your Father. You should desire his will above yours, even though it may be difficult to accept. (Read Mark 14:32-40.)

“And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us: And if we know that He hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him” (1 John 5:14).

Now that you know Him, you can be confident…if you are abiding in Him…that He will answer any prayer that is according to his perfect will.

God’s Perfect Timing

Don’t give up on prayers that don’t get answered right away. One of the signs of a Spirit-controlled Christian is “patience” (Galatians 5:22).

Countless Christians will tell you stories of God’s faithfulness in answering prayers after many years of continual prayer.

Your Prayer Life

You began your prayer life as a member of God’s family when you invited Jesus into your life.
