How to Pray - Get Your Prayers Answered. Does God Hear My Prayers?

God Help Me - Do You Hear My Prayers?

Sometimes we wonder why God has not answered our prayers. It could be something that we have been praying about for a really long time. Is he not listening? Does he not hear me? I assure you he is listening and he does hear you. At this moment the time is either not right for your prayer to come to pass or he has better plans for you. Plans that you cannot even imagine.

We have to believe that God has our best interest at heart. He wants us to be happy and over-joyed and prosperous. He only wants to make it the best it can be! He is working behind the scenes to make sure everything is in order. I know it might seem like it is taking forever, but when the time comes to pass, you will be overwhelmed and amazed at the wonderful work that God has done in your life.

He aligns all the people that he needs to use in order to fulfull your desire. Every detail needs to be perfect. So even if you are ready, somebody or something else might not be ready yet. Think of it like this, most people getting married plan their wedding for a really long time. They make sure everything is covered from the flowers to the music to the food. You have to make sure everything is in order and that everything is going to go smoothly. Well that's what God does. He plans everything to make it just perfect.

But even though God wants us to have what we desire, it does not mean that we are not going to go through trials and obstacles to get there. There might even be tests to see if we are ready to receive our desire. Sometimes we do not even realize that we have lessons to learn, and once we learn those lessons, we will be once step closer in receiving our prayer.

Learn how to start your Journey with God Here.

We Need Faith in Order to Receive Answer to Our Prayers


Another big factor in receiving our prayers is Faith. Without it our prayers are almost useless. You need to believe that God is going to answer your prayer. You need to let go of it and leave it in his hands. Even if we do not receive our exact prayer request, he will give us what the true desire of our heart is. It will be even better than we expected. So keep your faith in him and believe that even the impossible can happen. If God can move mountains and bring light to darkness, then he can surely answer your prayer. And he wants to. But you need to believe that he can do it. Even when things look really bad, tell yourself that God is your helper and that he will be there for you. He will give you all the strenght and courage you need to get through your hard times. Just ask. Trust me you will feel better!

Gods will verses our own. Remember somethings we desire is not always something that God desires for us. We might want something really bad, but if it is not good for us, we are not going to receive it no matter how much we pray. Not to say that he will not do wonderful things in your life, but you will one day discover what his will is and it will be even better than what you had planned.

Praise and Thank God


And last but not least. Thank God. Everyday. Tell him how much you appreciate what he does for you. Let him know that you put your faith in him and tell him how wonderful he is for giving you all that you have. I am not going to tell you what is the right or wrong way to pray. I believe that we all have our own unique relationship with God and he answers us all in different ways. You just need to figure out your relationship with him. How you communicate, and how you know which desires are his and which are yours. So find your strength and love with God and you will be on your way to fulfilling your hearts desires.

Unanswered prayers doesn't means that God doesn't hear you. But these are His way of redirection. This means He is preparing you for a greater purpose

IT IS TRUE THE PERSON WHO PRAYS IS THE ONE WHO KNOWS WHERE THE SHOE PINCH MOST, WE SHOULD LEARN TO PRAY FOR OURSELVES, AND BELIEVE IN GOD. MANY CHRISTIANS RUN TO SERVANTS OF GOD TO PRAY TO THEM BUT THEY DON'T PRAY FOR THEMSELVES. BUT THE TRUTH IS GOD ANSWERS PRAYER AND HIS TIME IS THE BEST, HAVE FAITH AND BE PATIENT BECAUSE WHEN YOU ARE ALMOST GIVING UP THERE HE REWARDS U WITH WHAT YOU WANT AND YOU BECOME SO HAPPY. GOD IS REAL AND HE ANSWERS PRAYERS. EVEN THE IMPOSSIBLE WHETHER FOR JUSTICE, ANYTHING HE WILL DO IT FOR YOU OR GIVE YOU A BETTER ALTERNATIVE. BE BLESSED ALL OF YOU AND WORSHIP HIM ALWAYS BE A MAN AFTER GOD'S HEART, AND THANK HIM FOR THE THINGS YOU WANT OR HAVE RECEIVED.

Dear God, I thank you for all you have given us especially in these times. I have been unemployed for over three years and still searching for a job to help my family, and no luck yet. We pray for a financial blessing this week. Our mortgage payment is higher this month, because of the extra escrow money we needed to pay in and did not have. My son's college loans need to get paid. He is behind in over $600.00 on one which I am co signer for, two student loans over $45,000.00 is too much for my son to handle himself, or anyone else at that age, and income. Please help us, I have been taking care of my parents since I lost my job, and I love and respect them, but I need a miracle in my life right now.There is too much going on in my life and I need some peace, love, encouragement,guidance, and assurance Lord. I know I must take care of my parents, and family, but these months ahead of us will be difficult financially, but I know you will help us through them. I am sorry, since I have been out of work it hurts so much not to help my family out financially. My husband, and older son have been helping with bills but its getting to be a bit more then what we can handle now, and we are trying to make the best of what we are given, but we are feeling the pinch Lord.I know there a lot of family's, and individuals in the same situation if not worse, I pray they get help too, and I pray for all unemployed at this time. I feel it in my heart for all those that have lost there jobs this year, my coworkers, and all in need. I ask you to help my family for I love them so much. Please help us pull through together, and stay together, especially through these coming months. I have Faith and I know if we all pray together all things are possible. I ask you this through Jesus Christ our Lord, in Gods name, Amen. Jesus name,
