Can all our prayers get answered?
John 15:16 - Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
If you are a Christian let it be known to you, that you have not become one just because you wilth. It was the Lord who chose you to be called by His Name that you were able to become a Christian. But the purpose of you becoming a Christian is that you should go and bring forth fruit and that your fruit should remain. This is not just one instruction by three instructions.
The three instructions are:-
First is to bring forth fruit. That is to preach the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ and to help those invited through you to become true Christians.
Second is to 'go', which means not to remain in your own comfort zone but to move out of your comfort zone to do the first task.
Third is to keep the fruit. This means to follow up with those who were given unto you. Most preachers, evangelist, healers etc. bring the Good News unto the people, but then they leave them in the cold later on. This destroys these people even more than before with lesser chances of total change.
When we pray, we are given not all things, because not all our prayers are answered. It is only when we do all these three instructions are we assured that whatsoever we ask in Christ' Name will be given by the Father.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, I thank You for choosing me to be a Christian and to be called by your Name. Father God, forgive me for not following your instructions and then doubting You because all my prayers were not answered. Today since I learnt my mistake help me correct myself and receive all my prayers through Jesus Christ, Amen.
