_"If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. John 15: 7._

Have you spent weeks, months, or even years praying about something specific, Are you saying, Lord, I know what Your Words says, so why isn't it working for me?? In order to get the result you're praying for, you've got to be able to answer three questions, which we'll explore over the next few days.

*First Question: Are You Praying From A Place Of Intimacy With God*
Jesus said, If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. (John 15: 7). The word abide speaks of intimacy and close connection. It paints a picture of home, the place where you experience rest. When you have that kind of relationship with God, you'll know His heart and His desires so well that your will is going to line up with His will. And as a result you'll get what you ask for.

As you give God more of yourself, you realize that you can trust your motives for prayer because God trusts you. Abiding brings spiritual maturity. And when you're spiritually mature, you begin to pray differently. Your prayers aren't self-centered and self-seeking. The time you spend in the presence of the One you love most becomes more important to you than the end result you hope for. You don't mind waiting, because you realize God's timing is always perfect. And when He chooses to say no to your request, you rejoice and say, Then you have something better in mind for me, and I trust You. Have you reached that point yet in your walk with Him
