Today's Bible Study

Evil Prayers?

James 4:3

3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume [it] upon your lusts.

First, James wrote that people fight with one another because they do not bother to pray. "Ye have not, because ye ask not." In this third verse he wrote an answer to the objection, "But, we do pray!"

A literal translation of our verse is a bit more emphatic. "You ask, and do not receive, because you ask evilly in order to waste it on your lusts." They did pray, but not according to the will of God, in which case they received nothing from Him.

Evil men, who are constantly striving against others, often pray for victory over their opposition. They come to the Lord accusing and condemning their opponents. Is that not the job of Satan, the Accuser? Those men have no one's interests at heart other than their own. Instead of praying for their enemies, as Jesus taught us to do, they accuse them before the Lord.    Read More
