The Prayer of Confidence

Then they took away the stone from the place where the blessing prayerdead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.  And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.  And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. __John 11: 41-43 KJV


praying girlThe prayer of confidence is modeled for us by Jesus as He arrived 4 days “late” at the tomb of His friend Lazarus.   Because we know that God knows what we need  (Matthew 6:7-:8 ) and  that God has placed desires in our hearts (Psalm 37:4),  We can simply say: ” Thank you, Father I know you hear me always.”
