Jesus came to reveal to us the Father to us. People are destroyed for a lack of knowledge of God. If we have wrong thoughts about who God is that’s going to have a direct affect on our prayer life. Like any relationship, the more intimate the relationship, the more we understand the other party the more we know how to approach them when asking them something. Likewise, the more we understand the Father the better we will pray, the more earnest we will pray and greater confidence we will have to ask the Father for the things that we want and need Him to do! He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
