Now 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, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” (First John 5:14-16)
Some view prayer as a time to present God with our latest wish list; however, the Bible tells us that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.  Our prayers should be based on the will of God.  While in the garden, Jesus prayed.  “He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed saying, ‘Oh My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.’  (Matthew 26:39) 
Though we may feel that we know what is best, God’s will is always best!  We should trust God to the point that we are willing to accept His will in our lives.  Sometimes we may not understand His will, but we must remember that He knows what is best for us.
Believe his word, accept His will and grow in grace and knowledge.  Walk with Him daily and continue to have confidence in His will.
I remain your brother, friend and servant,
Bobby L. South
