Have the kind of trust that comes from God! …
I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer
Trust that you are receiving it
And it will be yours. …
-Mark 11:22, 24
It’s one thing to pray, it’s quite another to believe you will receive an answer to your prayer requests. Believing God for an answer is the mark of a true believer. When was the last time you believed God would answer your prayer and not just hear it? If you don’t believe God for an answer, don’t bother praying at all.
There is no special formula or ceremony to perform to winning an answer to prayer – the only thing required is believing God will give you what you ask for. Sounds simple but so many people struggle with whether or not they are worthy to receive an answer, or their faith is weak and as soon as they have uttered their request, they cut God off at the knees with the assumption that He will never answer their prayer. We do not have because we do not believe God for the answer.
Turn, offer your prayer requests to God believing you have what you have asked for, receive in joy that for which you have asked. Believe God for great things to happen in your life as you come to believe that He not only hears you but has answered you even before you called!
The Lord is coming!
