Petitioning God

I love the Lord, for He heard my voice and my cry for mercy. Because He turned His ear to me, I will call on Him as long as I live. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? [Psalms 116:1-2; Psalms 118:6]

Holy Spirit Your word says: “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us, therefore, come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain. “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. the days are evil.” “Finally, be strong in the Lord and His mighty power. Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” “Is anyone among you suffering? He should pray. Is anyone cheerful? He should sing praises. Is anyone among you sick? He should call for the elders of the church, and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up; if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven…The prayer of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect.” [Hebrews 4:12-16; 1Corinthians 3:16&17; Ephesians 6:10; Ephesians 6:18; James 5:14-16]

Holy Spirit by the Your words that I just prayed I know that if I pray within Your will and I am living in Your will I am to bring any petitions before Jesus on the throne, who is my advocate. I know not only will I be heard but that You will truly consider my petition and demonstrate mercy and grace in all situations. I also bring petitions with humility, asking that Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

For this reason, I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches, he may strengthen me with power through His Spirit in my inner being, so that Christ may dwell in my heart through faith. And I pray that I, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that I may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all I ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within me, to Him be glory, Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21
