None of these come from the Father, but all of them come from the world. The world and everything that people want in it are passing away, but the person who does what God wants lives forever.” (1 John 2:15-17)

“You have begun to live the new life, in which you are being made new and are becoming like the One who made you. This new life brings you the true knowledge of God.

“I tell you to believe that you have receiver the things you ask for in prayer, and God will give them to you.” (Mark 11:24)

Don’t reduce these powerful passages to the simple earthly requests of new cars, paychecks and earthly wealth. Don’t limit the promise to selfish perks and favors. The fruit that God assures is far greater than promotions and proposals. His dreams are far greater than anything you can imagine. He wants you to be free of sin, fear, death, pain and much more. These are the prayers he will answer
