John tells us, 'This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.' Wow, that's some kind of confirmation that we can directly ask God to show us how to live according to His will and He will hear us! John follows up with this, 'and if we know He hears us - whatever we ask - we know that we have what we asked of Him'
That's even better! When we pray in God's will, He will respond! Dr. Merritt tells us how to pray according to God's will - it's just 'A Matter of Focus'.
