We are not seeing our role in the causation of what happens when we pray. Do we speak believing something is actually happening? Jesus’ last teaching to His disciples gave us two promises: Ask for anything in my name. Anything. You can directly ask the Father who want to give you joy. Your Father wants you to live in joy. So what is our problem? Our experience in prayer has not fully revealed this Father, our Father who loves us so.
And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”John 14:13-14
Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.John 16:24
