"If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you." NIV
"If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you." KJV
When we pray and there doesn't seem to be an answer, there may not be. Are we staying true to our Lord and Savior? Are we obeying His Word? If we are, we will be asking according to His will and He will give us whatever we ask. Let's check our relationship with he Lord and review our motives for asking.
Heavenly Father, please help us to examine ourselves so that we may be found abiding in You and holding fast to your Word. Not only that our prayers will be answered, but we ask this so that we may become more like you. In Jesus' name, Amen.
