5 Reasons God being "in heaven" gives me confidence in prayer...

As I am preaching through the Lord's Prayer, I have spent much time on the subject of the God to whom we pray. I was meditating on some reasons why God's being "in heaven" or transcendent and wholly other gives me confidence in prayer. I wanted to list 5 of them I was meditating on:

1. He is omniscient and knows perfectly what we need. Matt. 6:8
2. He is omnipotent and able to do more than we can ask or think. Eph. 3:20
3. He is good and will give us what is best for us. Matt. 7:7-11
4. He is holy and cannot fail to keep his promises. Heb. 6:17-18
5. He is sovereign and nothing is out of his control. In fact, everything is being worked together for our good and his glory. Rom. 8:28
