When we pray we may be sure of this, and that we must pray in the assurance of it, in a full assurance of this faith.
That whenever or wherever God finds a praying heart, he will be found as our prayer-hearing God: though the voice of prayer be a low voice, a weak voice, yet, when it comes from an upright heart, it is a voice that God will hear.
That he will hear with pleasure, it is his delight, and that he will return a gracious answer.
He has heard thy prayers, he has seen our tears.
When, therefore, we stand praying, this ground we must stand upon, this principle we must stand to, nothing doubting, nothing wavering, that whatever we ask of God as a Father, in the name of Jesus Christ the Mediator.
According to the will of God revealed in the Scripture, it shall be granted us either in kind or kindness; so the promise is, John 16:23;
John 16:23-27 (KJV)
23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time comes, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.
26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:
27 For the Father himself loves you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
That the truth of it is sealed to by the concurring experience of the saints in all ages, ever since man began to call upon the name of the Lord.
When we come to God by prayer, if we come aright, we may be confident of this, that notwithstanding the distance between heaven and earth, and our great unworthiness to have any notice taken of us, or any favor showed us, yet God does hear our voice, and will not turn away our prayer, or his mercy.
Use this Communion with God: Begin the Day, Spend the Day and End the Day with God.
This is your chance and choice!
