Topic: The Requirement for Answered Prayer [Thursday February 2, 2017]
Scripture: But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6.
Thought For The Day: The consciousness of God fuels confidence and imparts audacity.
It is important to note that many people pray laboriously but few people see results of their prayers.
One reason many people pray but do not see results is because of their ignorance of a vital requirement for effective praying. Now, what is that vital requirement for answered prayer?
It is a consciousness of the reality of God.
The consciousness of God fuels confidence and imparts audacity. It was the consciousness of God that made Moses to return to the same Pharaoh whom he initially ran away from. Your degree of awareness of God determines the degree of your answers to prayers.
The LORD gave me a song some time ago which is centred on the consciousness of God’s Presence; I want you to meditate deeply on the lyrics of the chorus:
You are always there to help
You are always there to help me
Even when no one else was there
You are always there for me
Even when I can’t feel You
Even when I cannot trace You
I still have faith in Your Word
That You are always there for me
I decree the consciousness of God’s Presence in your life in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: The consciousness of God fuels confidence and imparts audacity.
1. Make up your mind like Moses, Daniel and Paul to know God more.
2. Increase your level of the study of God’s Word and prayer to know God more.
