How To Get Your Prayers Answered.

How To Get Your Prayers Answered.

Have
You Ever Wondered, “Why Doesn’t God Answer My Prayers?”

Remember,
prayer is simply talking to God. God wants to be our friend and He
wants us to feel comfortable talking to Him.

BUT
MAKE NO MISTAKE.

You have no reason to expect
real
answers

to
your prayers unless you pray to the one
true
God
and ask according to His will.

1
Corinthians 8:5-6 (NIV) says

For even if there are
so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are
many “gods” and many “lords”), yet for us there is but one
God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and
there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and
through whom we live.”

1.
Have Faith In God.

Hebrews
11:6 (NIV) says
And
without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who
comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those
who earnestly seek him.”

James
1:6-7 (NIV) says
But
when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who
doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.

That person should not
expect to receive anything from the Lord.”

2.
Confess Your Sins And Ask God To Forgive You.

1
John 1:9 (NIV) says
If
we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our
sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

NOTE:
Sins weigh you down and keep you from hearing from God!

IMPORTANT:
Salvation
is the free gift of God through Jesus Christ. Eternal life,
deliverance from death and condemnation, cannot be purchased for any
earthly sum, but it is yours for the
asking,
completely free of any charge.

This
is because Jesus Christ has already paid for you, for all of us, by
His death on the cross in our place. By His sacrifice, He ransomed
us, paying the price for all the sins we would ever commit, and thus
opening up the door to
eternal
life
.

If
you
have
not already received Jesus Christ as your Savior and
would
like to,
simply
say
this prayer, mean it from your heart and believe it.

“Lord
Jesus, for too long I’ve kept you out of my life. I know that I am
a sinner and that I cannot save myself. No longer will I close the
door when I hear you knocking. By faith I gratefully receive your
gift of salvation. I am ready to trust you as my Lord and Savior.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for coming to earth. I believe you are the Son
of God who died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead on
the third day. Thank you for bearing my sins and giving me the gift
of eternal life. I believe your words are true. Come into my heart,
Lord Jesus, and be my Savior. Amen.”

3.
Repent Of Your Sins.


Revelation
3:19 (NIV) says
Those
whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent.”

NOTE:
Repent means to feel so sorry for your sin or fault that you change
your ways and stop doing it.

4.
Forgive Others.


Matthew
6:15 (NIV) says
But
if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive
your sins.”

5.
Study The Bible So You Will Know God’s Word.


2
Timothy 2:15 (NIV) says
Do
your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who
does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of
truth.”

6.
Pray God’s Word

The
following are two examples of how to pray God’s Word:

Joshua
1:9 (NIV) says “
Have
I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do
not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever
you go.”



Example
# 1:
Thank
You, Father for being with me wherever I go. I will be strong, brave,
and encouraged. I will not be afraid or dismayed. I will pray, and
go, and do Your will. I thank You, In The Name Of Jesus.

Amen.

John
14:27 (NIV) says

Peace I leave with you; my peace I
give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your
hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”


Example
# 2:
Thank
You, Father, for the peace that You give. I accept this peace, so my
heart will not be troubled with the affairs of this world. I thank
You, In the Name of Jesus. Amen.

7.
Ask According To God’s Will.


1
John 5:14-15 (NIV) says

This
is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything
according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears
us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.”

8.
Pray To The Father In The Name Of Jesus.


John
14:10-14 (NIV) says

Don’t
you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me?
The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather,
it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. Believe me
when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at
least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. Very truly I
tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing,
and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going
to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that
the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything
in my name, and I will do it.”

9.
Believe That You Receive When You Pray.


Matthew
21:22 (NIV) says
If
you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”


Mark
11:24 (NIV) says

Therefore
I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have
received it, and it will be yours.”

10.
Thank God For The Answer.

Philippians
4:6 (NIV) says
Do
not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and
petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

IMPORTANT:
After
you have prayed and asked God, verbally confess and believe that
whatever you have asked God for is now yours and thank God for it.
But, don’t just confess it once. Continue to thank God for what
you have asked for until you receive it.

11.
Be Patient And Don’t Waver.

James
1:6-7 (NIV) says
“But
when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who
doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That
person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.”


Hebrews
10:23 (NIV) says
Let
us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is
faithful.”


Hebrews
10:35-37 (NIV) says
So
do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.

You need to persevere so
that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has
promised. For,
‘In
just a little while, He who is coming will come and will not delay.’”
