Do you know how to pray to get your needs met on a daily basis? God promises to supply all your needs. However, you must pray and live according to His will. Everything you need is located in the will of God for your life.

  1. Four requirements for successfully "praying in" what you need on a daily basis.
    1. You must be in the will of God.

        1. When you seek God daily, He will equip you with the ability, sufficiency, and might to do His will.
