Christians: If God hears all prayers, then what is 1 John 5:14 Talking about?

1 John 5:14= New International Version This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. New World Translation And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that, no matter what it is that we ask according to his will, he hears us. This... show more 1 John 5:14=

New International Version
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

New World Translation
And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that, no matter what it is that we ask according to his will, he hears us.

This verse seems to imply that he only hears prayers that are according to his will.

And if i have taken it out of context, please show me with scripture how i have. Thanks
