Being Bold In Your Faith


“And this is the boldness we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”

1 John [5:14]


We should not be hesitant in our prayers, we should be bold. When we ask according to God’s will and a faithful hopefulness, God will hear and respond. In our very asking we are recognizing the sovereign nature of God. We have decided in our souls that God is the provider of all that is good and needed. In turn, when our prayers are formulated with; thanksgiving and praise, our petitions will be heard. As God responds, we in turn will observe the response in the same faithful manner we prayed. We will be sure the response is from God and according to the desire of God. The response will be recognizable especially to us and breathtakingly clear that God is with us.

Points of Reflection

  • What specific event can we recall that we knew was a direct response from God?
  • What do we silently ask from God and how do we ask?
  • What is the boldest request in prayer we have made?

Blessings, until next time,
