Do God really answered prayer
I feel so bad whenever I see people in a state of discomfort running here and there looking for a way out through the broad way because they felt that’s the easiest way leaving narrow way which lead to God
Job said as for me and my household we are going to be serving God
Why do we have to make enqiry from water,tree, iron, stones when our heavenly father is there for us why don’t you asked him???
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24
Mat 7 vs 7-8
And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
SIMPLE STEPS TO FOLLOW WHEN MAKING A REQUEST FROM GOD
F (P+ W + R + JN) = Answered Prayers
WORD OF GOD
REQUEST IN JESUS NAME
The first thing you need is (F)faith before your prayer can be answered
Hebrew 11:6 says:
“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Without faith it is impossible to please God and of course if you displease Him, how would you expect Him to answer your prayers?
The next thing you need is
Praise Him (P). Psalm 100:4 shows that praises attract God’s attention and make Him willing to hear you. In fact, if you just praise God and don’t make any requests, He will ask you for what you want. This was the case with Solomon after he had given a thousand burnt offerings to God without making any request. God told him in a dream to ask for whatever he wanted (1 Kings 3).
Pray with reference to the word (W) of God. Before you bring a request to God, find out what His word says about it, then quote it back to Him; this is praying according to His will. James 4:3 says we ask and do not get our miracles because we ask amiss. After this, present your Request (R). lastly, make sure that you are presenting your request in Jesus’ name (JN). When you pray in the name of Jesus, you are placing the personality of Jesus behind your request since God cannot deny Him anything, He will not deny you. He will attend to your request just as He attends to the request of Jesus.
Don’t just barge into God’s presence with your requests; make sure you have all that you need for your prayers to be answered.
