Praying With Confidence

Hebrews 4:16,

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

God delights in our asking because we are His children.  It draws us to Him in the dependency of the parent-child relationship.

It’s an insult to God NOT to come asking.

St. Theresa of Avila once declared, “You pay God a compliment by asking great things of Him.”
