1 John 5:12-15New International Version (NIV)
12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
Prayer that is productive is knowing that you are praying according to the will of God. God’s will is revealed in the Bible. When you hear what God has to say, you grow in your faith with him. He answers prayer.
Dear Father, Thank you for speaking through your Word. Help me to tune my heart to hear you, Lord. Guide me as I read your Word. When I ask anything according to your will, you hear me. Thank you. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
