What to Pray for in God’s Will

Key to Successful Prayer

What is the key to successful prayer? You must understand that when you pray and believe, then your prayer and belief must be scriptural (2 Peter 1:20,21). Ask and believe and receive what God has clearly promised in his word!  Those who have faith can have whatever they ask for without doubting, when it is in agreement with God’s will and plan for them.

What is God’s will? To discover God’s will in prayer, accept his revealed will through scripture! Where God has made his will clear through His Word, you can accept it. Where he has not made his will clear, then pray like Christ: “Not my will but thine be done.”

Nine things you can pray for that are scripturally in God’s will:

1) Pray to receive the Holy Spirit (Luke 11:13)
2) Pray for believers to spread the Gospel (Luke 10:2)
3) Pray for other believers (Luke 22:32, John 17:20)
4) Pray for church officials (Acts 12:5)
5) Pray for those in authority (1 Timothy 2:2)
6) Pray for forgiveness of others (Matthew 5:44)
7) Pray that you will be judged worthy (Luke 21:36)
8 ) Pray for unity of all believers (John 17:21)
9) Pray for sick to be healed (James 5:16, Mark 16:15-18)

These are a few of the scriptural messages that are clearly in God’s will. There are many others. God promised you power to move mountains (Mark 11:23-25), but you must be sure to move the ones he wants moved. You will know what he wants moved if scriptural or if God’s words abide in you (John 15:7). God doesn’t give demonstrations just for our special entertainment!

1 John 5:14,15 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.

  2. I pray daily for my husband, Hennie, to be saved and for our marriage to be restored. Surely this is in line with God’s will? God hates divorce. God honours the marriage covenant. God promises that He will remove hearts of stone and replace with hearts of flesh.
