But there are many reasons why prayer doesn’t work for you and me. With our Heavenly Father, prayer works through trust in his name and power. It works through promises that he has given us in the bible and through obedience. Many things that we have prayed for were not promised to us. Often when people prayed for healing, they really did not believe that anything would work. Other times, when prayer would be offered the recipient did not expect to receive anything but just went through the motion.
Prayer is like the natural medicine that you and I take. If the person who receives this medicine takes it regularly, in the proper dosage, expects healing, listens to the doctor’s instruction, they will receive their healing. When you and I pray on any given situation ask, what is God’s will concerning this matter? Am I doing everything that he has laid out in his word to receive the answer? Is my heart clean towards the Lord? Am I operating in faith (trust)? Am I being foolish? Am I just acting on a good feeling?
When you have acted upon his word, live the life that is pleasing to the Lord (living without hatred, reading, studying the word, confessing the promise (found in the bible) and believing in his word. You will receive what you have asked for. Also, there are key ingredients to receiving expected results that many people neglect to discuss. Certain times, there is a period where you will have to fast. You will have to separate yourself to receive from the Lord. You will have get your heart and mind right with the Lord. These all need to be in line with the Lord.
I hope this little blog helped you. Until we meet again.
