REQUIREMENT FOR GOD TO ANSWER PRAYERS

We Must Belong to God.

“There is one God and one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus” (1Timothy 2:5). Because Jesus is the mediator between us and God, we must give Him our total allegiance.

We Must Pray to God the Father in the Name of His Son Jesus Christ.

Only the name of Jesus Christ gives us credibility with the Father — not our education, our wealth or poverty, our church, our background or our position — only Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “If you ask anything in my name, I will do it” (John 14:14).

We Must have a Clean Heart.

Psalm 66:18 says, “If I had known of any sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened to me.”

It is very important to keep a clean heart before God. Someone said, “I ‘fess them as I does them, I don’t bunch them.” Don’t wait until you go to church or a crisis arises in your life to confess your sins to God. As soon as you become aware of an attitude or action that is displeasing to God, admit that it is wrong and thank God for His forgiveness. 1 John 1:9 tells us that if we confess our sins, God is faithful to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

We Must have a Forgiving Spirit.

In Mark 11:25, Jesus says, “Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven my forgive your transgressions.”

Jesus makes it very clear that we can’t carry anger, hatred, or bitterness in our hearts toward anyone if we expect God to forgive us and/or hear our prayers.

We must Pray in Faith.

Jesus said in Matthew 21:22, “And everything you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.”

The very fact that you are asking God for your needs demonstrates your faith.

The answers come every time, but not always in the way we expect.  There are times when God answeres prayer as soon as we pray. Other times we have to wait for them to be answered. Sometimes is anwer is “No”, like all good parents, He gives us what is good for us, but not what is harmful to us, but He always  listens and answers.

If you want to be sure God is listening to your prayers, consider if you have ever asked Jesus Christ into your life, you can do so right now by submitting to him with a simple but powerful prayer.

“Lord Jesus, I want you to listen and answer my prayers, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.”

PLEASE IF YOU JUST PAYED THE PRAYER KINDLY SEND US A MESSAGE AND YOUR PRAYER REQUEST GOD BLESS YOU CONGRATULATIONS
