Or maybe you wake up with an upset stomach and don’t feel well. Then you go to the medicine cabinet. After a while you start feeling better and say, “Well, I believe it’s time for prayer.” You start to pray and you have wonderful time–glorious fellowship with God in prayer.
I want to ask you a question. Were you on praying ground more after you took that medicine than before? Not at all. Do you think God was in those two tablets? Would God have heard your prayer even if you didn’t feel well when you prayed? Of course He would, unless you came with your own emotions. Friend, prayer is not answered because of how you feel. But if you came in the name of Jesus, prayer is answered because you have prayed in Jesus’ name.
It’s not how you feel. It is His name that gets your prayer through. Don’t clasp your hands in prayer filled with the brass of your emotions. Come with both hands filled with the worth of Jesus and in the name of Jesus, that the Father would be glorified. Hebrews 13:15 says, “By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name.”
