Yes. And you should know the will of God before you pray, lest you waste your time.

"Must a prayer be in line with God's will in order for that prayer to be answered?" --Yes, and it's important for God's people to have ears to hear(being sensitive to the Holy Spirit) What God's will is! Prayer with no "Unction of the Spirit"(anointing) is in vain. God Bless!

(II.)When the Holy Spirit leads sinner's/backslider's to pray(the sinner's prayer/prayer of repentance), the Lord's holy anointing/power(Unction of the Spirit) rest on that prayer of "godly repentance and faith", It's God's will that none perish, but that all come to Him with a sincere repentant heart, It's good to tell sinner's/backslider's this, that it is God's will for them to repent and come to Him,before it's too late. Sin can't enter Heaven. God Bless!

That really wouldn't be an answer to prayer, if you ask for a Hummer, then have to make the payments. That sounds like your eyes are bigger than your budget. Going to the lot, signing a purchase agreement for years on end.

Becareful what you ask for, you just might get it.

Example: I make $500.00 a month and I ask for a new car (Hummer) I get it but can't pay for it.

God's people roamed the desert for 40 years. God provided them food by sending manna from heaven. They became tired of the manna and asked God for meat. God sent a flock of pheasants and they stuffed their bellies full of the pheasants - and became ill.

Amen Kay & Rickey!
---Leon on 1/6/07

I agree with Rickey. I believe to pray according to God's will is to pray according to what He has already revealed to us in His Word. For example, it would be pointless for me to ask God to give me an opportunity to date my neighbor's husband. God has already clearly revealed the answer to that in His Word.

James 4:3; I John 5:14,15; John 14:13,14; 15:7; Mark 11:22-24.

Yes. His will is His word.(1John 5:14-15)
---Rickey on 12/24/06

I asked for something once, that I absolutely know now was not God's perfect will. God answered that prayer. I should have kept my mouth shut. I begged for it.... and I paid for it.

Mrs. Morgan."a prayer must be in line with God's will in order to be answered"?
That is a huge statement that ropes God into a little box rendering it impossible for Him to do anything unless conditions are just perfect.
God has given me the desires of my heart many times and I later find out He had a better plan all along. As a child, did you ever want to go somewhere really bad but your parents didn't like the idea but let you go anyway?

The best way I know to find God's will about something IS to pray about it.
---Jack on 12/23/06

The most powerfull prayers are the ones of gratefullness, for the gifts that you have allready recieved. PEACE.
---peter8365 on 12/23/06

It doesn't say that prayers not in the will of God will never be answered. Some have added that to the verse.
You don't have to read too far in the BIble to find prayers that God answered that He did not agree with. Like the Israelites praying for a king to lead them and for meat. God gave it to them alright. And it wasn't His will.

1Jo 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
1Jo 5:15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
