There is no need to rush off into allegations of imbalance. Without question some verses on prayer have been abused by people teaching weird doctrines. This one may even get the prize for “most abused”. Still, if we ever needed a motivation to pray, the following words of Jesus have to rank among the best.
And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” – Matthew 21:22 (NKJV)
Christ wants us to pray. He says this to encourage us to pray. The main reason behind this encouragement is likely that the Father desires to answer our prayers and Christ knows that better than anyone. He wants what is best for His people and, therefore, He wants us to pray, asking things, believing, so that we will receive.
