The Promise of Answered Prayer

by Gregory A. Johnson
The Promise of Answered Prayer, by Gregory A. Johnson


The Bible, God’s word to us, is full of promises. With those promises come conditions. For example, Jesus says, “if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! (John 15:7, NLT)."

Let’s explore that Scripture. The promise is that our prayers will be answered. The condition attached to that promise is that we are to remain in Jesus and his words remain in us.

As Christ-followers, we know and do what Jesus teaches, continuing his point-of-need ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our prayers will be in accordance with his life and teachings. Our prayers will not conflict with the life and teachings of Jesus. Our prayers will agree with them.

As we pray according to the life and teachings of Jesus, he promises that our prayer requests will be granted. We can stand on that promise. We may not get what we are asking for in our timing, but our prayers will be answered.

Beloved, follow Christ. Know his word and do what he says. Really follow him in all you say and do. Let him shape your beliefs and actions by his life and words.

Jesus has empowered you with his Spirit to help you obey him. It’s supernatural power. Pray, standing on the promise that he will answer your prayers.
