1 John 5:14English Standard Version (ESV)
14 And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.
It is normal as a child to wish for many things and ask your parents if they can grant you your wish. You are confident that your parents have listened to you and you are confident that they will seriously consider your request, because they love you. Parents will quickly scan in the back of their mind if your wish is good for you. They sometime grant your wish and sometimes they do not. If your wish is not granted they would say :”we know whats best for you”.
God is our father and he will sometime grant our wish and sometimes not , because he knows what is best for us!
How we make our wishes known to him is by “Praying”.
