1. Have confidence in God

When you pray, you should have confidence in God and believe that you will be rewarded with what you pray for. In Hebrews 11:6, but without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. In Hebrews 4:16, let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. In Ephesians 3:12, in whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. In Hebrews 3:6, but Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.
