(Matthew 7:7) Ask, and it shall be given you, seek, and ye shall find, knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
By faith we reach out to claim what we need, and thereby create the reality of it in our life. Often we are indefinite in our praying. When I ask people what they are praying about, their answers are ridiculous. One person said he was praying because they said they should pray. Below are steps to answered prayers:
1: Decide what you want from God. (James 1:6-8): Decide what you want from God and be definite about it. Do not approach God casually.
2: Use scriptures that Promise the Answer You Need. (Joshua 1:8): In order to be successful in our prayer life, God’s Word must be foremost. As we feed upon His Word, we build it into our inner consciousness. We can use the appropriate scriptures against the devil when he tries to make us doubt God and rob us of what we want.
3: Ask God for the Things You Want. (Matthew 7:7-8): In Matthew 6:8 Jesus said, “Your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask Him. Therefore, even though He knows our needs, He wants us to bring them to Him and ask His help.
4: Believe That You Receive (Mark 11:23-24): The Amplified version of the above verse says, “Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe – trust and be confident – that it is granted to you, and you will get it” Everything we need is provided for us in the spiritual realm. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ “(Eph. 1:3).Everything we need is provided for us in Christ Jesus. Just believe.
Meditation: Decide what you want from God and be definite about it.
