Jeremiah 29: 11-12 **
"In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee." 1 Kings 3:5.
God is a prayer-answering God and He invites people to pray to Him. Asking and receiving is a good relationship God wants to establish with men. He wants to establish with you, a relationship of “asking and receiving.” In Psalm 65:2 the Bible says, “O Thou that hearest prayer, unto Thee shall all flesh come.” That is the testimony of people.
People know God as the God that answers prayers, and they say that unto Him shall all flesh come. Every member of the family should learn to come to God – the father should come to Him, the mother should come to Him, the children should come to Him, because He is the God that hears prayers. Every member of the Church should know God as the one that hears prayers. The Church is serving the God that hears prayers, and to Him all of us should come.
Prayer is a privilege. For God to say, “Ask what I shall give thee,” it is a great privilege! It is an opportunity to ask, and God is the one that invited you to ask. It is a great privilege and a demonstration of God's grace. God wants to flow out to you in His goodness and kindness, therefore, He said: *“Come and ask; I want to show forth My kindness and goodness to your life.”
Prayer is a manifestation of His mercy. He knows we can do nothing on our own. He knows that without Him we can achieve nothing. He knows we cannot get there on our own. He knows that we cannot win the battle on our own. He knows that we cannot save our souls. He knows we cannot get what we are looking for by our own power. That is why, in mercy, He invites us to come and pray; to come and call unto Him; to come and ask Him – to ask Him because He wants to bless us and *“give us an. expected end”-(Jeremiah. 29:11).* Prayer is the means of receiving God's blessing. Through prayers, we receive from God, promises, power and privilege.
