God answers prayer!

What shall you pray for and how to get your prayer answered.

If we pray according to His word, our prayer will be answered. Only when one doubts, the outcome may be different or undesirable. If one prays not having faith in God, it will be done according to your faith. Thus, no answer to such prayer.

Isaiah 53:5 Tells us that our salvation and healing are secured, if we but have faith in God.

WE RECEIVE ACCORDING TO OUR FAITH, and His promises, whatever we pray for.

Related scriptures:

John 14: 14...
You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

Hebrew 11:1... The prayer of faith will move God on our behalve.

Mark 11:24...
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you WILL have them.

Luke 11:9....
So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

John 15:7... If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

Some may say what about Paul's prayer to have "the thorn in the flesh removed?" God's response was "My grace is enough for you." "He did not give Paul what he wanted but what was best for him."

My reply:
Concerning Paul, the thorn in the flesh was to keep him humble. He had a great mission to fulfill, as we may read in his epistles. This was an exeptional, and specific situation in Paul's life. Not many of us have ever, or will ever be in Paul's situation of service and have this high calling. So, this example is certainly not for us, unless one claims to have the same calling.

By the way, this thorn in the flesh was NOT a sickness, because it would go against God's word in Isaiah 53:5.

I keep myself to the words of God (many Psalms as witness) and the words of Jesus, as written above.

Each child of God knows his or her own walk with God and knows what to ask for, especially when it comes to personal needs. He who knows the Master knows how to approach Him and how to apply the word of God through prayer and active faith.

In general Christians make an excuse if their prayer is not answered, by saying : "It was not God's will," even if God's word states it to be His will, instead of checking their own heart for error. In such a situation they are making God a liar.

The quoted scriptures speak for themselves and each one is free to apply these on personal life situations. It is a lack of faith when prayers are not answered, as what we can read in the Gospels.

What I am trying to do here is to encourage you to allow faith to work through prayer and action, and reach the heart of God. Faith pleases God, and for us it is the most powerful Gift we can use along with obedience unto His word, to reach the thrown of the Father. AMEN!!
