1 John 5:15 (NKJV)

And if we know that He hears us in whatever
we ask, we know that we have the requests
which we have asked from Him.

Song Of The Day

Bible Commentary

1 John 5:15 is a Bible verse from the New Testament which assures us that God hears our prayers and responds.

There are many places in the Bible that talks about Jesus praying. And in Luke 11:1 one of His disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray. In that same passage where “The Lord’s Prayer” was born, Jesus also speaks of persistence in our prayers.

In addition to a story about persistence, Jesus made another famous statement in Luke 11:9, “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”


It is important to also note the verse immediately preceding 1 John 5:15.

1 John 5:14
"This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us."

The word “hear” in the Greek also means: understand. We might not be able to put our needs or petition in words, but He understands us. The Holy Spirit intercedes for us and communicates for us.


We have Holy Communion in Christ Jesus. Through the power of His blood that cleanses us, we are able to come confidently to God with our petition, so that there is nothing that can inhibit our plea and God’s understanding of it.

There is perfect communion—perfect communication between us. Nothing stands in the way--no sin, no insecurity, no inability, no ignorance, no sickness and no disability. Absolutely nothing stands in the way between God and us.

Jesus Christ is the great Mediator, the great High Priest Who intercedes on our behalf. We can have no greater advocate.

Unlocking the Truth - Pray with Confidence

If you believe with confidence that you have lifted up an uninhibited prayer to God, expecting a response, you will have it. He rewards our faith. This is in essence what 1 John 5:15 says.

If we offer up all kinds of prayers, but doubt in our heart that He really hears, or fear that He might not answer the way we want, the power of faith is drained right out of our prayer.

Jesus said many times to someone He had healed, “Your faith has made you well.


It’s our faith (believing the truth without seeing it) that fuels our prayers. The power is within you, and not God only. Jesus died a brutal and heinous death in order to equip us with it, but if we don’t believe we have it, it is useless!

Think bigger, believe bigger and pray bigger. Imagine what power we wield united in faith!


Pray not only for yourselves and your family; pray for your community, pray for your nation, pray for Christ to be revealed in miraculous ways, both to you personally and also to the nations.

And don’t just pray with confidence, but let's thank Him with confidence for what He has already given us, but we have been too weak in faith to receive.

·         Thank Him for Kingdom health—spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically (Isaiah 53:5).

·         Thank Him for righteousness—His righteousness sprouting up in the earth (Isaiah 55:10).

·         Thank Him for Kingdom wealth—the abundant life He came to give us (John 10:10).

·         Thank Him for Kingdom work—the empowerment of the Holy Spirit (2 Thessalonians 1:11).

Pray with boldness; pray with confidence. Pray believing.

Study the Bible verse of 1 John 5:15 and know that God hears, and that you have the requests you have asked of Him.
