Dr. Williams,
Great explanation. I have learned a lot from this and your other articles.
Thanks, Mick G., TX
(I especially liked your description: “Some are very formal and will present their prayers in such a way that they look and sound like they are petitioning the Queen of England to intervene in their private affairs.” I’d bet in ten years I’ll still remember that sentence and the content of this article.)

So funny Mick G. Regarding your “especially liked” part — I laughed out loud when I was editing this one for Dr. Mike. Yes, 10 years from now you might recall it when you see someone praying in such a manner. Thanks for lightening my day. Come back again for a visit any time.

The explanation is simple, easy to understand and helpful. I particularly appreciate the comparison with the Old and New Testament.

Thank you so much.
I have often wondered what supplication meant and you have cleared it up beautifully for me. In a way that I can understand.
May the Lord, bless your ministry greatly.

God bless u for this enlightenment. Was feeling down about d exam I had yesterday. Then I remembered Phillips and 4 vs 6. I decided to go online to check d meaning of supplication. Dts how I got you blog…. now I understand dt its not about the result but it’s by being in God’s will, and His will is perfect. I will continue to pray and supplicate with giving of Thanks to our God and father. Thank you. I pray for more enlightenment for you in Jesus name

What a blessing to be in Vietnam, preparing for a meeting, looking at the topic of prayer and finding a great article about the attitude of true biblical prayer, and finding a friend wrote it! To God be the Glory!

“Many people read this verse with the idea that if they draw close to God that God will give them what they desire. However, when we submit our prayers to God with supplication, He changes us and our desires change as well. Therefore, this verse teaches not that we will get what we want, but instead we will desire what God wants.” Now i understand that it is all about Gods will;

Doctor Williams;
Greetings and more grace to you.!
I desire to learn more about God…to get deeper and closer to Him.
As such, am looking to study the word, to the highest level possible.
However, am caring for my autistic grandson, who grounds me around him.
Am only able to do online studies.
I have been looking for such an opportunity for the last 2years, in vain.
Learning that you are from a Nursing background, gave hope.
Am also a registered nurse.
How can you help me please?
Kind Regards and blessings to you and your dear wife.

This was a great read, one that helps to put us into correct prospective and in a position to realign ourselves to be “moldable” rather than “needy” with our petition – Thank you!

Dr. Michael, God bless you for this message. I’m richly blessed.

What an awesome and inspiring teaching about the prayer of supplication. I daily write down the prayer requests on my journal that I usually pray and intercede for many. I thank God for you as u do the ministry’s for many to understand the Bible and give meaningful explanation. There are many types of explanations to the Bible but however there are those that need additional information to better understand the Bible scriptures.

this is a very enlightening piece. it is not just informative but i find it very encouraging and uplifting. thank you for putting it together and making it available.

I’m not so sure you hit the nail on the head. Because the verb means “supple” doesn’t necessarily mean that’s how the word was used at the time the NKJV was translated. It would have help had you brought up contemporaneous examples of it’s usage.

I’m highly blessed and favoured by this message may the good God continue to empower you for greater works God bless you Sir!

Glory to God! what a marvellous explanation of the word. I’m also touched by the following phrase: “However, when we submit our prayers to God with supplication, He changes us and our desires change as well. Therefore, this verse teaches not that we will get what we want, but instead we will desire what God wants.” Wow…God is always Good, May He forever mould us to His likeness. Hallelujah!

This is a great eye opener for me. I now know that I need to humbly come into the Lords presence and present my case . And wait for His intervention. Not my fire brigade approach but in all humility. Thank you Jesus for this enlightenment.

Ngozi E April 6, 2020 at 12:28 am

Mike, your explanation and teaching about supplication has opened me up in the knowledge of how to present my Needs to God and what my expectation in the fulfillment of that request should be, not by what I desire but God’s desire which is mercy and love. May God strenghten you and give you the grace to carry on in your ministry. Amen
