Will my prayers be answered?
Thanks you for the good question. Many people would wish to know if their prayer is answered.
prayer can be regarded as a huge ebb with a flow. Have you ever tried to pray. Does this sound familiar. Sometimes you have a deep sense of God's reality and sometimes you can't imagine if God really exists. sometimes our eyes wander looking at your watch yo see how much time left in prayer.
Prayer calls us to have a deeper connection with our heavenly God where you are able to know God deeply and this only comes as a result of spending time with Him on a daily basis.
Let us answer the question scriptural.
In the book of Isaiah the Lord says this and I quote...For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.(Isaiah 55:8-9).
Why is it concerning us if we want to know whether God answers our prayers.
We need to know that God is not like man, the way He looks at things is very different.
God is not man, that he should lie,
or a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Has he said, and will he not do it?
Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?(Numbers 23:19).
The above and many other attributes to our loving God will make us know that God is who He is.
Whatever He says. He will do it.
This will help us to put a way any doubt or unbelief we had before concerning the answering of our prayers,so that we can pray a prayer of Faith knowing that God has answered it.
One writer says this..Prayer and faith are closely allied, and they need to be studied together. In the prayer of faith there is a divine science; it is a science that everyone who would make his lifework a success must understand(Ellen G. White,Education, page 257).
Therefore to answer the question ' will my prayers be answered' absolutely we can say yes,
As long as you pray a prayer of faith you.. there is an answer to it. God has made it plain that our asking of Him should be according to His will.
And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us(1 John 5:14).
It is by asking according to His will that we are able to see results for our prayer.
The answers to our prayer is behind the promises as we read here....For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory(2 Corinthians 1:20)
When you pray, please remember that...Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours(Mark 11:24).
If you have seen it in the word then you have. All is yours.
Walk with confidence knowing that whatever God has said it will come to pass, you might not see the results immediately but the answers are already given by God in his word.
Have faith in the word and give thanks to God.
