August 7

“Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” John 16:24 (NIV)

These words were spoken by Jesus to His disciples the evening before He was to go to the cross. He was soon to return to His Father’s presence in heaven. Things would be different for His disciples. Now they would need to present their requests to God in the name of Jesus. And that’s the way it has been for all of us since. Jesus encouraged His disciples and us to pray to God in His name, and He promised two things. He promised that we would receive what we asked for and that this would give us reason to rejoice. Has this been your experience? Have you experienced joy because of an answer to prayer? That’s what God wants to happen.
