But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! John 15:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Do you see the two important parts to this verse?
The first part is to remain in Jehovah. That means to have a continuous loving relationship with Him.
If someone only comes to you when they want something and give nothing in return, why would you even look at them much less grant them their desires. They are nothing more than users and abusers.
The same is true of Jehovah.
Why would He grant you your desires if you have no desire to be in a loving relationship with Him?
The second part is obeying His words.
So if the Bible, His words, tells you not to do something, like participate in homosexuality, and you do why would you expect anything from Him.
If the Bible, His word tells you to do something, like forgive someone who has offended you, why should you expect Him to grant your petition to Him?
Now it is okay to ask for personal requests like healing from a physical ailment but keep centered on the spiritual.
As Jehovah is spiritual so too will you become more spiritual than worldly in your daily life and your prayer requests. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Please Jehovah El-Deah ( God of knowledge.Romans 11:33 ) send the best mentor there is, the Holy Spirit to teach me the proper manner in which to conduct myself as a loving obedient child of Yours. I have a deep desire to draw ever closer with You with each and every breath. I humbly beseech You in the name of Your most precious son who was obedient towards You all the way to the horrifying cross, Jesus Christ. Amen
May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
