I remember when I was younger, (Catholic tradition) Easter Fridays and Saturdays were the saddest days because they told us God is dead and we need to be sad, no laughing, even smiling, or jokes, no meat, etc. But now, I knew the Truth. GOD is not dead! HE is risen! HE is alive in my heart! We’ll just remember his death, and tomorrow, Sunday, the “RESURRECTION DAY”, a day must be remembered, and looking forward to that “GLORIOUS DAY”! HALLELUJAH!
“And we receive from Him (in Jesus name) whatever we ask, because we [watchfully] obey His orders [observe His suggestions and injunctions, follow His plan for us] and [habitually] practice what is pleasing to Him.” 1 John 3:22 AMPC https://bible.com/bible/8/1jn.3.22.AMPC
Because of our obedience to GOD, it releases the answers to our prayers. Amen! Of course, the main thing when we trust and have faith in GOD, the HOLY SPIRIT always there to help us and obey GOD.
