Two useful things to know about God before praying

  1. He is so much bigger than we are. Consider this scripture that reveals the heat of God towards us:

Ephesians 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

So, asking for a ‘little’ does not prove to God that we are humble, and the more we receive from God, the more He appreciates it. Remember ‘great faith’ receives a lot, ‘little faith’ just a little. Wow! God is a big thinker, so let’s not ‘limit’ Him with our small thinking.

  1. He is also so much better than we are:

Matthew 7:11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

No sane father on earth will do damage to his kid (for example, break a leg) to keep them in line or teach them a lesson. If they do, we usually lock them up if we catch them. Yet some folk, bless their hearts and stupid heads, accuse God of doing such to His children.

God is so much better than we make Him out to be. A simple look into the life and ministry of Jesus proves that.

So, we are to ask our good Father for good things: He loves it when we do.
