Jesus says, “And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened.” (Luke 11: 9)
Jesus says, “Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11: 22 – 24)
Here Jesus warns us that what we ask for and believe we have received will be ours — this is true only because He is there with us, agreeing with us as we pray in faith. Our ability to bind and loose is only in proportion to our adherence to God’s will. If we are off base, then our faith is lacking and our prayer is worthless. Nothing will come of it.
“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow.” (Matthew 6: 33 – 34)
