Submitting our will to God

John 14:14: "You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it" (NIV).

These words of Jesus are not an empty promise—they are an invitation to pray for our children. We may fear that our concerns are trivial or silly, but He wants us to be specific and authentic in expressing our desires. The key to prayer, however, is humility. When we make a request in Jesus' name, we are saying we value His wisdom over our own selfish motives. We are recognizing our need for God and choosing to submit our will to His.

It will be hard to submit to and trust someone we don't know! The best way to know the character of God is to study His Word and come to Jesus in prayer. Our arrogance and independence break down when we recognize His greatness. Our fear is replaced with confidence in His purpose for our lives and the lives of our children.

Get to know and trust the One who will do anything you ask in His name.
