The scripture that I live by is John 15:7 which states, “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” (ESV) This is no “rub the genie” kind of magic. This is actual daily, continuous work in reading and applying the Word of God so that I don’t ask amiss. I learned that your prayers are in vain if you don’t have God’s Word inside of you so that you know what to ask Him for. I’ve been blessed immeasurably because in studying His Word, I come a little closer to His likeness and therefore, His Will becomes mine.
