it is all about prayer
in the bible dictionary it says:
"We pray in Christ's name when our mind is the mind of Christ, and our wishes the wishes of Christ- when his words abide in us (John 15:7).... Many prayers remain unanswered because they are not in Christ's name at all; they in no way represent his mind, but spring out of the selfishness of man's heart."
how true it is that when we pray in the name of Jesus Christ that out prayers are heard and answered. all things are done through Jesus Christ. he is the one that made it possible for us to be able to return to live with our Heavenly Father and he made it possible for us to be forgiven and to truly overcome anything and it is trough our prayers and our faith that we are able to recieve answers and to be blessed.
here is a cute story....
sister miner and i were out one day in an area where we so not get very good cell phone reception. well our appointment had just cancelled on us, so we decided that we would try and get a hold of someone to see if we could come over. so we were sitting in the car just hoping that the phone would work. well i started saying, "Heavenly Father please let it work, please let it go through". well it was not working very well. sister miner then spoke up and said, "sister remember that your prayer will not be answered unless you close in the name of Jesus Christ." so i said the prayer again, "Heavenly Father please let the call go through, in the name of Jesus Christ amen." and by and by the call went through. Heavenly Father really doew answer our prayers when we are in line with His will and when we say it in His son's holy name.
i know now that Heavenly Father really does love us and He wants to help us in every way possible. He wants us to be happy. He wants to hear from us, we just need to turn to Him in prayer and have the faith that He will answer. prayer really is the souls sincere desire!
