(DAY 4 OF THE 21-DAY FASTING AND PRAYER PROGRAMME)

Scripture Reading: 1 John 5:14-15

Welcome to the 4th day of our on-going programme. Thus far, we have learnt from God’s word that any prayer that is not submissive to God’s will, is selfish or self-centred. To be selfish in prayer is to erect a barrier that will hinder our prayer. We can ask for temporal goods conditionally, that is, if they are advantageous to us and are not injurious to our eternal salvation. Therefore, God does not grant every request for good health, gainful employment, and other worldly goods that He foresees may be eternally harmful to you. Just as He didn’t grant the prayer of James and John in Mark 10:35-40.
