When you are a chosen child of God, He is working in you through His Holy Spirit, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him! (See Philippians 2:13)

It is the Holy Spirit that helps you in your weakness. For example, you don’t know what God wants you to pray for, but the Father, who knows all hearts, knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for you in harmony with God’s own will, causing you to pray and only ask for things that He desires for you! (See Romans 8:26-27)

That’s why it says that we can be confident that God hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases Him!  And since we know He hears us when we make our requests, we also know that He will give us what we ask for! (See 1. John 5:14-15)

Now we also understand, what Jesus meant when He said: “ You didn’t choose Me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name!”
