1 John 5: 14-15 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
I don’t believe that we can read this passage apart from Paul’s instructions in Romans Chapter 12: I beseech] you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
While each passage poses an individual thought the one would seem upon a thorough reading to bear well upon the other. As is the case with so much of scripture the answer to any question is (and I say this with all assurance) to be found independently of that passage in question. The wholeness and fullness of scripture is unequaled anywhere in any writing in all of the endless “making of books” A higher level of engagement with the Spirit of God in the writing of the Biblical authors will help all who are willing to so engage the scripture prayerfully.
