How to get Answered Prayer


Do you pray consistently in all seasons, good or bad? Do you take the time to thank God for the little things every day? When you pray and you ask God for something are you anticipating that it will actually happen? Do you expect an immediate response? Do you get frustrated or angry when it doesnít happen quickly?

As believers, we have to keep faith and stand on Godís Word while we wait. Search the Word of God to see if the answer has already been given to you. Perhaps the answer you are looking for is in the scriptures of the Bible and you just need to spend some time in fellowship.

Sometimes we encounter situations that only a move from God will get us through and thatís where the true test of waiting comes in. The Bible talks about utilizing our ability to wait.

Psalm 27:14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage and he will strengthen your heart, wait I say on the Lord.

Psalm 27 states that it will take courage to wait but that God will strengthen you during the process. While we are waiting we have to continue to pray and ask for Him to fill us with His spirit and renew us daily to continue to stand on the Word and have faith in Him that whatever the answer is we are confident that it is for our good.

We have to be patient.

Psalm 37:7-9 Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for HimÖ Those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.

Waiting on the Lord to move helps us to build a stronger relationship with God as we continue to seek His divine wisdom, grace and favor. Just like a baby, when we need something we cry out. As we earnestly seek Godís attention, we are also building a deeper connection.

Matthew 6:33 Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousnessí and everything shall be added unto you.

So, if you donít feel that your payers are being answered or you are not prospering where you are, take a self-assessment. Do you only pray to God when you need something or are you always seeking a closer relationship and a deeper understanding of His Word? Do you thank Him and give Him praise and stand confident on His Word that He will come through?

2 Corinthians 5:7 We live by faith, not by sight.

Strengthen your faith everyday by daily communication with God through prayer and meditation of His Holy Word so you will be confident that He will hear you when you call.

God Bless!
