      Knowing that God wants us to ask, help us when we come to him is very comforting, encouraging and it assures us that he is a generous loving God that is powerful. He gives us so many promises and he Knows the thing that we have need of before we ask him but he wants us to come and ask with faith to receive guidance to ask according to his will and with the right motives.

      Knowing removes any doubts that we may have when we pray to God. God wants us to come to him when we are in need. Just as any parent wants their child to come to them when they are in need as well.

      It helps knowing that God is always there and always ready to help us when we call on Him in prayer.

      We can go to God’s throne of grace boldly and with confidence because He invites us to come and ask.

      Knowing removes any doubts, fears or limitations that we may have placed in the past concerning prayer. It enables us to come boldly before the throne of grace, sit at the feet of Jesus then depending on the circumstances seek His face or seek His hand.

      Similar to when our children know that they are dependent on their parents.

      The biblical instruction concerning prayer is that we pray for the good things that we genuinely need, according to the will of God, in the authority of Jesus Christ, persistently (see Luke 18:1), unselfishly (see James 4:3), and in faith (see James 1:6). Knowing that God wants us to ask, we should be more ready to pray within His will, in the authority of Jesus, persistently, unselfishly, and in faith. By praying so, we will receive what we need according to His will. “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, he hears us” (1 John 5:14-15).

      It is reassuring when you are relatively new to Christianity to know that God wants us to communicate with him through prayer – it makes us comfortable and able to make a great relationship with Gid.

      It is comforting to know that the creator and supreme ruler of heaven and earth want to hear from us. Knowing this makes prayer/conversation with God more approachable.

      We don’t have to think that we are bothering God with our requests, and we don’t have to be ashamed or embarrassed to ask for things. In fact, by asking Him for things, we are doing what He wants us to and we are pleasing Him.

      We can approach God in prayer with confidence as He knows what is best for us within the requests we ask of Him because He is Our Father and we can always count on and trust in Him for the best outcome of our asking which may be answered in unexpected ways.
