Matthew 7:7-11 "Keep on asking, and it will be given you; keep on seeking, and you will find; keep on knocking, and it will be opened to you. For everyone asking receives, and everyone seeking finds, and to everyone knocking it will be opened. Indeed, who is the man among you whom his son asks for bread, he will not hand him a stone, will he? Or, perhaps, he will ask for a fish, he will not hand him a serpent, will he? Therefore, if you, although being wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more so will your Father who is in the heavens give good things to those asking him?"

Psalm 107:28-30 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven....... Hope this helped :)

I guess I needed to see it again, anyway!! It's been on my mind a lot. I have a friend that has been instructing me in praying and believing. I have always known it, but I haven't always utilized this powerful prayer - the prayer of faith!

It's wonderful. The only prayer I don't get it when they involve free will.

About prayer being granted? I know what we should and shouldn't pray for but once I was asked to pray for a person to get a car. She didn't have a job or money tho haha, ya, she's really going to get it. But I promised I would pray for her to so I said "Lord I'm really sorry about asking this but I promised...." SHE GOT THE CAR!!! I about hit the floor! She totaled it in a week so be careful what you pray for hahaha! Well then I thought if she can get that.... I'll ask to win the lottery. Can't hurt to just throw it out there right? So I asked. That night I had a dream we won. My husband came home from work and as I was about to tell him my dream he said we won! TWENTY BUCKS haha! Don't think God doesn't have a sense of humor haha, just about rolled on the floor laughing. As for free will things.
People have asked me to pray they quit smoking or relationships get fixed. Those things involve free will you see and harder to get is what I mean. It involves people changing or doing something. God doesn't like to interfere with free will. Soooo, did I explain it ok? Sorry for rambling.... I do that hahaha!!

I totally understand and agree. I try to explain it like this: God is not a big vending machine in the sky! Some people think that they can ask without thought or any effort on their part. Your lottery winnings is hilarious!! Did you thank God for your massive haul? Lol!
