Hebrews 5:7-10 New International Version (NIV)
7 During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. 8 Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him 10 and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.
Offer up prayers and petitions to God. Why does God hear prayer? God will hear prayer if it is in reverent submission. In order for God to hear, we must approach in reverent submission. Not as I will, but as God will. God’s will be done. I renounce my own will, and embrace God’s will.
