Ask for What Pleases God
If you’ve ever struggled to know what to pray, you can be sure your prayers line up with His will when you pray Scripture. It pleases Him when you ask for His will to be done in the world and in your own life.
We are certain that God will hear our prayers when we ask for what pleases him.
─ 1 John 5:14 CEV
The Bible is filled with answers to your questions. You can search the Bible on almost any topic and find the truth of what pleases God concerning that specific topic.
