"Success in prayer, y'all."

Hello, John and Doves,
Even though the Word promises,

    "When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you."

"From eternity to eternity I am God. No one can snatch anyone out of my hand. No one can undo what I have done."

Isaiah 43:2,13  NLT

Still, we seek a little more of God's blessings in this life.
So here is a three point guidebook, as it were, to successful prayer:

    "I will answer them before they even call to me.

While they are still talking about their needs,

I will go ahead and answer their prayers!"

Isaiah 65:24  New Living Translation


    "Yet you don't have what you want,

because you don't ask God for it."

James 4:2  NLT


    "Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

"And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him."

                                        1 John 5:14-15  NLT


Baruch HaShem Adonai,
