If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
Abiding in Christ is the secret of a successful prayer life. The closer we get to Him, the more we will learn of Him. The more we get to know Him through the Word of God, the more we will understand His will. The more our will agrees with His, the more we can be sure of having our prayers answered.
