Once saved through receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior Romans 10:9, you can position yourself to receive answers to prayer. Secondly, make sure you have no unconfessed sin in your heart that includes unforgiveness for that displeases God. Sin will prevent your prayers being answered.
If you don’t forgive people, your Father will not forgive your wrongdoing. Galatians 5:19-21; Psalms 66:18; Matthew 6:15; Isaiah 59:2.
The good news is that if you repent, confess your sins and forgive, He will forgive you. 1 John 1:7-9
Having done this, let me share with you simple steps to answered prayer.
If you don’t ask, you don’t receive. James 4:2-3
If you ask the Father in the Name of Jesus you receive. John 16:23
Ask and make sure what you are asking is in line with God’s Word. God does not answer prayers that do not line up with His Word. His Word is His will for you. Jeremiah 1:12
“What things soever you desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” – Mark 11:24. When you ask God for something believe you receive the answer to your prayer instantly – in the supernatural. Believe He heard your prayer and answered it at that very moment because you asked in Jesus Name, in line with His Word or Will and in faith taking Him at His Word. Use your God-given imagination to see yourself presently with it [now] and that pleases Him. Hebrews 11:6.
“Wait on the Lord…wait, I say, on the Lord.” – Psalms 27:14
The ‘waiting time’ is that interval of time between the asking and the demonstration of it where you actually see or feel it in the natural. Now this waiting time is crucial because Satan will try to make you doubt God heard and answered you.
So what do you do? Thank, praise and worship God because He answered your prayer. That is faith-in-action – acting like you have it before you see it with your physical eyes.
