Have you ever gotten discouraged by the apparent lack of results when you pray?
Whenever we pray, we’ve got to understand that we have a part and that God has a part (I Corinthians 3:9).
What is our part?
- 1. Believe that receiving your full inheritance from God is as important to Him as it is to you.
In Acts 26:17—18 Jesus told Paul to “teach people to receive forgiveness of sins and their inheritance.” Jesus said it’s His will for you to receive your inheritance! We must believe it’s His will and His desire for us to receive everything He has for us.
- 2. Ask God for the thing you need and desire.
Be specific! If you need an unsaved loved one saved, be specific — name that person to God. If you need a job, be specific about what kind of job and how much money it will earn. Jesus said in John 16:24, “Ask and you shall receive.” James 4:2 says, “You have not because you ask not.”
- Be sure you’re asking for the right things…
James 4:3 says, “You ask and do not receive because you ask amiss.” He tells us that when we miss the mark in what we ask for, we will not receive. Is what you’re asking for in the Word of God? I John 5:14 says, “If we ask anything according to the will of God, He hears us…”
- 4. Believe you received it the moment you ask, no matter what you see or feel
(Mark 11:24). This is walking by faith, not by sight (II Corinthians 5:7). You have to break the habit of only believing something when you see it. You must see what is invisible NOW and believe that it is yours — just as a pregnant woman knows there’s a baby in her— she hasn’t seen anything–but it’s there. She knows it’s there.
