You can lie on twitter, you can lie on facebook - but you can't lie in court" -CNN news anchor in re to our current president claiming voter fraud.
This statement caught my attention as a "Perceiver/Prophecy Kingdom Identity".
If you take notice the bible is not only a holy book, but it is also a book of law - God's law. When we read scripture there are numerous words that have legal meanings to them. This leads to the fact that there is a system of law, that there is a court of heaven.
In light of everything that is going on - I pondered this thought about prayer - which are petitions, another "legal term". There are many petitions that come before God but those "petitions" must line up with the law of God in His court, otherwise they are struck down.
We can pray (selfishness, harmful prayers) but the Lord will not grant those requests. Because those petitions do not promote His will or the Kingdom of God.
James 4:3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
We must learn how to pray according to God's will and not our own.
