Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 01/15/17

This week’s scripture is from 1 Chronicles:

Praising GodHe answered their prayers, because they trusted in him.  (1 Chron. 5:20)

We know that when we ask anything in accordance with God’s will that He will give us what we ask for, for it is His good pleasure to give to those who ask Him believing that He will answer them. But to receive what the Lord has for us, we must believe that He will give us what He has promised; we must believe that He will answer our prayers, and we must ask for what it is that He wants us to have.

Let us therefore pray to the Lord for every good thing that He wants us to have; let us search the scriptures to know what it is that He wishes for us to have. Let us come before Him with sincere and clean hearts, hearts full of repentance, and pray earnestly, believing in His everlasting goodness and grace. Let us trust in Him that He will always give us what is best for us, that He will provide for every need, and bless us with His love.

May you trust in the Lord and pray with an open heart.
