Children of God; How to recieve living in all the Blessings of God

Updated on June 13, 2012

Jesus Hear my Prayer

God hear my prayer in the Name of Jesus.

We all want answer to prayer. Sometimes the answer is no because the Father knows the big picture and wants what is best for His Children. He is the Father and sees around the bend. Our Father loves us and answers prayer according to His Will. 'God will always give them what is right and He will not be slow to answer them.' (Luke 18:7)

Would an earthly Father give his 5 year old boy a pocket knife because he really wanted one? If the boy kicked and cried would he get the knife just to quiet him? I think not. Sometimes the answer is wait because the answer is not in our best interest, yet. Maybe when the little boy grows in understanding the earthly father plans to give the boy a pocket knife. Maybe the boy will decide he does not want a pocket knife after all when it is time.

God has blessing for His people. Not just a blessing, but the blessing. You see, a blessing opens up the window of heaven into a particular aspect of your life, but the blessing affects every aspect of your life. You may have a blessing in your life, even many blessings. But God wants you to have the blessing, so you can experience His fullness in every area of your life. That is what Psalm 1 is about.

Living in the Blessing is the spoken favor of God over your life. Gods word tells us it is available for His children. 'The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy. I came so that they may have life and have it more abundant.' (John 10:10) I needed to search my heart and scriptures to see where or what I was missing in Gods word to receive an answer to my prayer. I know many struggle in these difficult times in finance, and God has ample supply. He the Source of all is not limited. Children of God are, 'in this world but not of this world' and the promises for Gods children are to be fruitful and multiply. What was blocking the answer for favor and increase in my finances? God does not hold back from us.

If something is not right I need to look in the mirror. The enemy has been defeated at the cross. I was led to search scripture. All Glory to God. This has been an earnest, fervent prayer for months on end. God has supplied me with amazing miracles and blessings. His delivery system is quite clever and more wondrous then my finite mind could ever muster up. I am forever grateful. 'Our God will supply all your needs according to His Riches and Glory in Christ Jesus.'

If there is a crevice in the heart that is holding a secret, a bitter or evil thought our prayers will not be answered. If we are living in sin or have an unforgiving heart our prayer will be blocked from the sunlight of the Spirit. God does shape and mold His kids for His Glory, so we can be His hands and feet. There are seasons of reaping the harvest. We will reap what we sow. If they are good or bad seeds we will reap what we sow. There are consequences for sin. There is a plentiful harvest when we plant good seed.

Many years ago I had to overcome my sinful nature of credit card use. I am forgiven and forgive myself. I have moved forward in Christ. Praise God, His Children are forgiven and 'God can turn all things for the good for those that love Him' (Romans 8:28) I no longer have a credit card. God is faithful and just. I do not need one. It got me stuff, stuff that corrodes over time. It was corroding my mind. I was in debt that I could not repay. We take nothing with us when we leave this earth, but our souls. Praise God of the Heavens brothers and sisters Jesus is going to return soon.

A miracle is temporary. Miracles are wonderful and awesome and provide. Miracles bring many to Christ. We all pray for miracles. For our loved ones, health needs, financial needs, a new job, to get pregnant, to help others, to find a home, to sell a home, to bring home a child. to publish a book on and on. The desire of my heart is to be free and living in the Gods Blessing, a permanent flow of Gods unending favor. I believe we would all like this peace of mind. God assures us we will have troubles in this lifetime but to keep on in Him to the prize of Eternal Glory.

'What so ever you ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.' (1 Timothy 2:1)) God has thousands of promises written in His Word and I can still flounder like a fish out of water at times. I know I love God and I can not fathom His love that is so deep and for me and all His creation. I often think of the Cross and what He did for this wretched sinner and all of the world and I know His love is truly unmeasurable. (John 3:16)

My friend if you have come here and are not saved then it is not possible to understand that a believers heart and mind are made new by the renewing of the mind. When we are Born Again we are transformed from the inside out. We are new creatures in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17) If you are not saved, then accept Jesus Christ into your heart by Faith and repent of your sin. God hears your prayer for salvation and you will be Saved. (Romans 10:9-10). Only Gods Spirit can change you into a 'Child of God.' (Isaiah 55:1)

I have missed the whisper of the small still voice many times. Keep practicing faith Children of God. If you fall get up,and get to the Rock. We are not alone. We have the hand of each other to pull us up and we always have the living Word to carry us, when we are faint and tired and it seems giving up would be an easier road. We reap a harvest in thought, words and deeds so keep on with the good seed. keep handing the fresh living water of Jesus Christ. God says 'He will never leave nor forsake us' (Hebrews 3:13) God has the plan in control. He knows what to do. Oh Glory to God. He is the source of ALL. Faith is similar to playing the piano; the more one does practice, the clearer the sounds and melody.The more beautiful the tones come together in ease. 'Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.' (Romans 8:28)

For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.' (Proverbs 23:7) Everything we think starts with a thought. When God created the Earth and Heavens He had a thought about it first.The Lord God made the Earth and Heavens and every plant before it was in the earth and every herb of the field before it grew. (Genesis 2:5)

My prayer for you is that you will hear through the Spirit of God in me if you struggle in the area of 'Living in the Blessing.' I know many do in these times of uncertainty. DO not let the enemy rob from you what belongs to you through Jesus Christ. I am led to share a revelation with you that came my way in Gods perfect timing. I missed the whisper, the answer written in Gods word was right under my nose, my own thinking was blocking answer to prayer. (Deut.10 :5) That is a dangerous neighborhood to go to. JK, not. I know in my Spirit God wanted to show me something. Each time I turned to a Christian TV station a Pastor would be sharing on Living in the Blessing or financial increase. When I turned on the radio I would here about Gods Children living in the Blessing or how to get your prayers answered. There was no mistake I was to hear. I love how God delivers answer to prayer. What a long road to a revelation. Whew and thank-you sweet Jesus.

If you think of your life as a garden ( Adam and Eve ) we are always planting seeds. The thoughts we think are seeds we plant. To reap a good harvest we need to keep meditating on good, pure and holy thoughts to get our prayers answered. We have the God given power to choose what we will think, what we will say and what we will do. These are seeds in our garden. The seeds we plant will reap a harvest. If they are good or bad seeds they will produce. Adam and Eve reaped what they sowed in the garden. It is the same today. If a farmer sows seed he will reap a harvest. So it is with words and deeds and actions.God knows our hearts.' I can give each one payment for what he does' (Jeremiah 17:10)

It is essential that when you pray that it is in line with Gods word. (Philippians 4:7) Your situation may look ugly but keep on with the good seed of God. If you falter get back up and rely on the Word of God not what the situation looks like. 'God is for us not against us' (Romans 8:31.) There are times we need the answer to a prayer and soon, like today. Gods timing is perfect and it comes. In humility, I asked God 'what am I not getting here?' I asked God to help me to see through His eyes.

Alleluia the light came on. I am humble pie. I Praise God. The answer is so simple, yet I can complicate how to tie the shoe. Thank you God. He heard me all the times that I pleaded and pleaded in prayer. He understood. He has carried me. I had something in my heart that I needed to see and understand. I am so grateful for prayer. It is a lifeline to everything God has for us. God has not been slow to answer I have been slow to hear. He does not condemn us, He understands and waits.

I was giving and tithing and working and sowing with a cheerful heart. I am not a perfect and low I do fall short the Glory of God. I have made mistakes in this area and many of them. Because God is Love I prayed and believed and GOD has sent me miracle after miracle. God is awesome, the more I come to know Christ the more I want to know Him and all He has for His kids, because He loved us first we have these gifts available for us yesterday, today and tomorrow. 'We are more then conquers in Christ Jesus' (Romans 8:37)

God multiplies our seeds if they are good or bad, we will reap what we sow. God will not condemn us. We will bring it on, not God. God is grace, mercy, love, understanding, generosity, kindness, forgiveness more then we can possibly fathom. He knows we will need to grow up in wisdom and it is not always easy. If something in your garden needs pulling then get it out so you can clear the path for the promises of God. Nothing we have done makes Him love us less. We must confess and repent and be rid of the seed that is negativity or sin. Water the garden with good nutrients and fresh water and see the good of your seed flourish. Let your garden stay dry or forget the nutrients and it does not take long for the fruit to dry up and out, only to die.

The enemy wants any and all to blame God for their ills and the ills of the World. One day the enemy will be gone forever. The World will be made new as God did intend. Satan's fingerprints are everywhere but he is doomed to Hell with His followers. Children of God we have authority over the Devil. Jesus defeated Him for us. He carried that old rugged cross, beat and whipped to near death then nailed to the Cross so that we could be made right in Gods eyes. Do not let Satan steal your joy of 'Living in the Blessings' that God has for His Children.

I can not imagine waking up without hope in this uncertain world. A relationship with Jesus is certain. He has a future planned for His Children, not only in the world but in eternity and it is good, very good. Do not live life uncertain of what may or may not come down the pike this week or next month. Be certain of a future in the Light with Jesus Christ. His Living Word is the only certainty for a future of hope, promise, joy, prosperity, peace of mind, healing, kindness, meekness, abundant living and eternal life in the Heavens. (John 3:1

Our nature is a wretched sinner but we can be made new and will desire to be made more HOLY when we Love Christ, because He loved us first. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all these other things will be added unto you. (Matthew 6:31) Self seeking and self help books do not answer prayer. Jesus is the way truth and life.

Is it time for you? It is time for me! To bad, so sad that it has taken many long hard roads and years to learn a very easy God principle. Pray, Believe to receive and do not DOUBT in your heart and waiver. (Matthew 21:21) ' I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not DOUBT, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree but can also say to this mountain, 'Go throw yourself into the sea, and it will be done.'(James 1:6) ' But when he asks and does not doubt he receives, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea blown and tossed by the wind .' So my Friends, I was DOUBTING

I wavered like the sea. I pray to doubt NO more. MY DOUBT was holding back answer to prayer. God forgives me, I forgive me and I move upward and forward in Christ. I know without a doubt God is going to provide for the blessing. I am excited to share how God brings the stream to me and I live in 'the Blessing' God has for all of His creation. I am humbled and grateful for the knowledge in my heart written in the Living Word for all to receive. It is a choice we must make to follow God or not. For me to walk in 'Gods Blessing's' I needed to stop with the doubt. My heartfelt prayer is that you to walk in the Blessing with Christ. If something is a miss I pray you would be inspired to keep on in Christ Jesus to get answer to all of your prayers. All Glory to God friends, brothers and sisters.

I Praise GOD of the Heavens. My heart is renewed like an eagle and I am soaring in gratitude. I know my answer is here. God has a plan for all of us. So my brothers and sisters Pray, Believe to Receive and then do not DOUBT or waiver in your heart. Think of how happy you will be the day the answer arrives on your lap, heart or doorstep. Believe the answer to your prayer is done. God says so If your prayer is in line with the written word of God, it has been done for us. God has already defeated the enemy, poverty, sin, death, opression and illness on the cross at Calvary. God sent His only son for all of the World so we could have life more abundant and the promise of everlasting life in eternity with the King of Kings.

This is why we have to do all this work, to counteract the doubt and unbelief. If you do not have God's Word in your heart (John 15:7), you will fail to get what you ask for in prayer. God wants to hear from us. God deals with our whole being, not just our prayers. He wants all of us. It makes His day when we come to Him in prayer and tell Him we love Him and talk to Him. If you make His day I guarantee He will make yours. Prayer is talking with Jesus Christ, the son of God and He makes intersession for us to God the Father. How amazing is that? This is love, unmeasurable. So get all the prayers answered. Then be a living testimony and share the good news. You never know who could receive your good seed.

No matter how far down the scale you think you have gone there is hope if you are still here, accept Jesus into your heart if you do not know Him. Do not put off until tomorrow what you can do today .God is the only certainty in this WORLD. He owns it all, anyway. He will come one day and SOON.' Every knee will bow and know Jesus is Lord!!' (Philippians 2:9-11)

May all your days be Blessed by the 'Light of the World.' May Gods favor shine on your face today and always and answer all your prayers, quickly.' God hears our prayers. (John 14:6) Get them answered! Keep on and keep on. U will. (Philippians 4:13)

All Glory to God. In Peace, Skye

Be Blessed in the tune below. Your heart will be moved. Love you

      Precious 'sista' Skye, up and beautiful as always. I love the way you write from the heart. I for certain have experienced all of the same feelings and thoughts that you have written about so truthfully. It is so easy to drop our guard and let outside influences get in the way. The secret is to get right with God ASAP. Good worship music, lots of praise and prayer, is a great way to draw close to The Holy Spirit.

      Luv ya heaps. Thanks for sharing. God bless.

It is lovely as always to see you at my hub. I am touched by you words of truth. Glory to God for sharing with me. Your works for the Lord are mighty saint and I know the LIGHT shines in you.

      God has already provided all we need living in the Blessing of the Lord in all areas is possible. When I prayed I would sometimes waiver because it was not on my time. God heard and has answered. He has me covered. This hub was a revelation in my wavering. Like a doubting Thomas. I am so grateful for the revelation and yes I am living in the Blessing of the Lord.

      You saint are a gem and I hope to get over soon and catch up. I know you are so busy with Gods work as am I. He does keep us busy. Well it is a choice and and honor to serve Him.

      Naomi's Banner Sister it is lovely to see you at my hub of love. I am honored you came over. Yes God hears and answers prayer. He already answered on the Cross. If our hearts do not waiver in doubt HE is quick to answer. He is love and knows we all fall short the Glory. Like a Father that says to His child do you trust me? When I doubted that was like saying your word is not so. I am forgiven and move forward.I hope and pray not to waiver again. This was a revelation for me. God is so awesome. Love n peace precious one.

      Skye, Absolutely MARVELOUS! You are such a dear lovely soul!

      As you so well stated:”His delivery system is quite clever and more wondrous then my finite mind could ever muster up. I am forever grateful. 'Our God will supply all your needs according to His Riches and Glory in Christ Jesus.” Amen! & Amen!! We are taught in Ephesians that God has already BLESSED us with every spiritual blessing… Skye the Light of the LORD is shining brightly here. You have expounded on some excellent points!

      All of God’s WORD is true! It is abundantly overflowing with spiritual treasures… This does not mean that things will always go our way! But is does mean that it is true in His time “God WILL supply all our needs!” There are times when we have to step out on FAITH and TRUST HIM! There are times when we have to draw closer to Him and ask Him to open our spiritual eyes and ears so we can see clearly… Either way we as His children must learn to be THANKFUL and “REJOICE, ALWAYS!” in HIM!

      “I Praise GOD of the Heavens. My heart is renewed like an eagle and I am soaring in gratitude…” Amen & AMEN!! I REJOICE and PRAISE HIM with you and for you! PRAISE GOD! “Great & marvelous are the Blessingss of our LORD!” “TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

      This is truly Wonderful my sister! I thank the Lord for leading me here…. Such thought provoking, encouraging spiritual insight you have shared, May our Heavenly Father continue to enlighten you to encourage others to seek “His Will & His Way!” May He richly Bless you above and beyond your hearts desires that are in HIS WILL for you! Thank you for sharing, In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

Every area of your life will be covered. It is not easy but in pain we grow and when I look back all the pain I had to go through was for the Glory of God and a testimony to share with others for HIS purpose and Good. He will never leave you. Do not let Satan rob your joy. Keep your eyes on Jesus and you are going to get through and be stronger because of it. Stand firm on the rock and do not waiver in doubt as I have done. If so get back up. GOD does not lie His promises are true. He wants to Bless His in abundance John 10:10 Believe to recieve it, remind God of His promise and you are going to recieve. It is so simple yet I can complicate how to tie a shoe.

      Sky2day; thank you for sharing your heart and the action of your faith. Your faith in not only the Word of God but in the Spirit shows forth in how you are living your life... an example of simplicity and to me that is where the real life we desire to have stems from, pure simplicity. We complicate it with cliche and are hindered much by the thoughts and processes of our minds. The mind is full of toxic thinking; I like what Joyce Meyer says,"stinkin' thinkin'". She has a great book: The Power of Simple Prayer.

      I have been a student of prayer for over twenty years and still feel at times that I really don't know anything. We have a tendency to look at prayer for selfish reasons instead of a two-way communication with the Father through the Spirit. Our fix it now mentality overrides the seasons of travailing and waiting on the Lord. The Bible gives us a very brief encounter and as we read it we forget about the years and length of time the the pages dictate to us and we think that there was an immediacy. The prayers for a Messiah to come were going on for hundreds and hundreds of years after the promise was given. If we want to know God's heart and mind we have to have the mind of Christ activating fully and that only happens after much renewing and renouncing and changing our thought processor. We are very much corrupted like a computer with a virus... we work very similarly. When Jesus spoke to the disciples after the action of the fig tree dying he simply said, "have faith in God". Prayer is subjective to many things, some of which you pointed out. By the many comments you received you touched many hearts and lives and I know that that is part of your prayers. Therefore answered. Blessings L.

      When answering prayer, God responds first to our attitude, much as a parent responds to a precious child (Psalm 103:13-14). Our childish actions and attitudes frequently affect a prayer’s desired results. Unforgivingness (Mark 11:24-25), selfishness (Proverbs 21:13), doubt (Matthew 21:21-22), greed (James 4:2-3), pride (2 Chronicles 7:14-15), and stubbornness (Zechariah 7:11-13) hinder God’s desire to answer prayer.

      He desires to Bless us in abundance but there are many times our prayers are not heard as breathed in scripture. It is a walk we take and learn along the path. Living in the Blessing is a works in progress but I thirst and crave it. Thank you so much for coming over to read. Many Blessings Brother. Hugs Galore In Christ

      All prayers are answered emediatly before we finish them, some are "yes", some "no" and the last "wait". We only have to learn to listen to God's answers.

      Dear Skye2Day I hadn't been on Hubpages for a few days when today I decided to see what was going on. I came across this hub. It was amazing to me because I was sharing a scripture with a minister from John 10, "my" sheep know my voice and stranger they will not follow!

      I could relate to your whole hub. This season of our Country's financial situation has MADE me take a long, hard look on how I've been handling money, the debt I had gotten into, the repetitive purchases, and basically how many pairs of shoes can you really wear logic! LOL!

      My husband has been declared disabled by his doctor, he had an emergency pace-maker put in and according to the doctor it was a minute too soon. Now, we are embarking on pursuing obtaining social security disability for him which has been long and arduous. That's want has landed us right smack dab in the land of prayer! I do believe in prayer and ask that you all pray for victory when its his time to go before the Administrative Judge.

      We've had to sell things that we've collected over the years to pay the rent and buy food. At first I was saddened but realized that a lot of items I purchased, I had not consulted the Holy Spirit about and began to see it as a new beginning an entering into a deeper relationship with Him.

      So, we are giving up the THINGS so that we might understand and be better stewards of what He has given us. At this time I also realized that I needed to govern the temple He blessed me with by choosing to lose weight. Now, I know what it truly means when the Bible says "whom He loveth, He chasteneth." All that we might righteously live the abundant life!

      Love you my Sister!

      vijayanths Honored that you came by to visit brother. I agree God knows our hearts and faithful prayers are answered. Scripture tells us ask in line with Gods will, in the name of Jesus, have no unforgivingness or dark crevice in our hearts, believe to receive, then do no doubt or waiver know your prayer has be answered. For me I sometimes doubt ( past tense) for me to doubt is like saying Gods promises are not true. It took many years to come to that unveiling in my heart. Trust God. He will never leave nor forsake HIS kids. He wants us to live in the blessing. NOT just some Blessings but in all areas of our life. It is great to have you at my hub of love jab.. Live in the Blessings, always. In Christ Your sista. Love ya.

      jayb23 Greetings. You are so precious. Thank you for a Blessed comment. It is always best to leave it with the Almighty His ways are so much bigger then my finite mind can muster up even on a best day. He will take it all and that is what He wants all of us not part of us. I am so grateful to know I do not have to go figure. I mess up big times. Thank God He is always there to pick me up. Awesome to see you brother. I will be over for a read and soon. Hugs Galore. Keep your eyes on things above. In Christ.

      knightheart Brother. OK stop with the beating up. You made an error but guess what? Repent and God has wiped the slate clean as snow. So it is done, over with. You grew and next time if there is attack you will be more prepared. Awesome stuff. It is necessary to fall short, that is how we grow in Christ. So suit up, show up and keep the armor on. Jesus already defeated the enemy on the cross at calvary. God wants you to live in the Blessing. Speak it bro favor and promises over your life. Do not doubt or waiver on your prayers to Christ. Speak favor into your situations, all of them. Words are power and there is life and death in the tongue. You keep on bro. Phip 4:13 You Will! 'I can do all things through Christ who strengths me.' Love you bro in Him, Your sis.

      Wow, talk about a hubpage that needed to hit me between the eyes! This is a lesson I struggle with all the time...letting it ALL go and letting God take care of it. I love this phrase from Dr. Charles Stanley..."Obey God and leave all the consequences to Him." I love that, but boy, I sure don't do it often enough. Thank God He is patient when I screw up big time.

      AMEN, Skye! I have written about prayer and this hub seems to compliment the hubs I have written, so hope you come and visit my hubs and check out how we are sisters and can be prayer partners. It is wise to spread the Gospel, and that is why I love hubpages. All over the world I am finding believers in Christ. It is about time we unite in Global Prayer not to ask God, but to give Him Praise and Thanksgiving. Everytime I give Him praise and thanksgiving during difficult times, God gives me what I so desire. And in doing what He expects, putting His Love into Action, He will reward then. Thanks, and I hope to be seeing you on my hubpages. Peace, Christina(CMCastro)

      Great hub with great thoughts to ponder about the faithfulness of God. Truly our security is found alone in our relationship with God. I praise God for He is an ever dependable anchor, we can always count on Him. A christian's life is a life of great faith. Each day of our life we face a crisis whether to remain trusting God or stop depending on him. A true christian has no other better alternative but to remain firm on trusting God for He is an ever faithful provider.Thank you for sharing these timeless truths here at Hubpages. Blessings to you always. Best regards.

      vonasmodeous Thank you for your kind wish. I will continue to pray for you. Jesus just may keep stirring your heart. If you ever get a crazy desire pick up the Bible and read John 3:16 Just what if you mixed science with the Living Word of Jesus Christ. He could use you in a huge and mighty way. Just say I am right and GOD is alive and real and creator of all including you and I. When we pass from this life we go to eternity one side of the gulf or the other. The light or the dark for all of eternity never ending my friend. Where would you want to go? Jesus is the way to Heaven. He loves you. There is no mistake you came over to read this hub. NONE at all. You were sent.

      I too wish you all the best. One day my friend Jesus will return and every knee will bow and know He is Lord and Savior of all the world. I told you and it is a choice we make. To believe in Him or not to believe. A foolish man turns down knowledge a wise man seeks truth and wisdom. We are talking supernatural here. You can see God everywhere, you just have to have the eyes to see. When Jesus is in your heart you will see and know who this Jesus is. Many Blessings to you. Thanks for a visit. No need to comment because I stand for my God and will always stand for GOD. He sent His son to die for the sin of the world so we would not perish my sin included. When I go before GOD i am only made right because of the Blood shed on the cross by Jesus His only son. Keep on and have a wonderful life. There is more to come, eternity. We take nothing but our souls will go to heaven or hell. I store up treasures for heaven. Thank you so much for your time. I hope you will consider Jesus before it is too late. In Love and Peace In the name of Jesus Christ. AMEN

      By your words and love and devotion to God and Jesus, you sound pure and I know your intentions are good but I guess thats where you and I are different my friend -I'm a student of science and in my world it's all about logic, proof, evidence, investigations, formulas and research . . . Psychology and our minds are more powerful than we can ever imagine. My last example for you which was part of my thesis some time ago (long story short) - An average smoker starts smoking in their teens . . . and continues for life and no matter how many warnings of its dangers on the cigerette box, tv, science, health magazines, doctors, medical proof, family, peers etc the average smoker will not stop until they die.

      A 2000 year old bible is fed to you either after birth, life trauma or negative life occurrence and the devotion to those who accept it is forever without question...

      The 1st example has warnings yet majority of our species are blind to it and will do it to the end of their days, imagine how much more difficult would it be in the second example the bible . . .

      Just some food for thought, though I know as my examples illustrate it would make no difference to you . . .

      I thank you for praying for me and wish you all the best in life

      skye2day 6 years ago from Rocky Mountains

      vonasmodeous Greetings Thank you for visiting me. May God Bless you and make His face to shine on you. Prayer is never a failure. The things that block our prayers are not believing in Jesus Christ and asking Him into our heart as Lord and Savior. Resentment, anger, doubt, sin, greed, lust, evil thoughts and deeds. This is why God sent HIS SON JESUS Christ so we could be made free and have an abundant life and life in eternity with the Lord in the Light. God wants none to perish we were made with a free will to choose who will we serve. Will we serve the Lord or follow the enemy that hates that God loves us. The enemy is here and has come to steal kill destroy.

      God does not hurt us He loves us. More then we can fathom. He sent HIS only son to die on the cross for our sins. If you do not have a relationship with Jesus you will not understand because you are trying to understand with mans thoughts or scientific or evolution data. The only TRUE DATA is GOD and HIS WORD.

      God gave us HIS son the Blood of HIS son, HIS word to hear and preach and thousands and thousands of promises. GOD does not change. Man is a sinner. We are BORN AGAIN and made new in Christ. You will not understand what I write by trying to go figure on mans idea. It is sin that causes poverty, illness so on. When we know Jesus we are set free. The helper the HOLY SPIRIT will help us to understand.

      I have been Born again since 1992 when I asked Jesus into my heart, repented of my sin and confess Jesus as Lord and Savior of my life. I am a CHILD OF GOD. I serve GOD. My prayers are always answered. I was missing a link to a promise from GOD GOD knows our hearts. He loves you. He wants you to open the door. Is he knocking on your door to come into your heart? Your life will have meaning and you will be made new. It is the best decision one will ever make in their lifetime. One Day Jesus will return and soon to gather His Children. If we are not born again you are of the world and stand not forgiven. If you want to run your own life it is a choice. I choose GOD. I stand for GOD. It is mans fault the sin in the world. The devil wants any and all to go down.

      Children of GOD will rise and we have hope each day. The Father will care for us. It is not easy we will have trial and tribulations but we will get thought with Jesus that is our hope and we know this is our temporary home. In Heaven there are no tears no sadness no pain.

      The soul will go to one side of the gulf or the other. Heaven or Hell. John 3:16 Romans 10:9-10. It seems to me you are searching for hope and peace. Jesus is the way to truth. If you are having a good Ole time and living it up more power to you. If you are hurting in the heart or feeling a void in your life or suffering in your life go to Jesus. You will be changed. You see there is no love like the LOVE of JESUS CHRIST.

      You ended by asking for prayer. I am praying for you. I pray that you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. I pray for your peace. God is light not dark. the Dark is the enemy. SO if you need a mended heart or a hole filled call on Jesus. You know all of Heaven will cheer when one is Saved or Born Again and becomes a 'Child of God' May you find what you are looking for in Jesus. It is the only way.

      I was once lost then found. I Praise GOD. He is good, I blow it and He forgives me. We move forward together. I hope this has helped you. Please be in touch if you need prayer. GOD loves you. He has a plan for your life. It is good, easy not always. Growing up is not easy but with GOD all things are possible to those that BELIEVE.

      Peace in Jesus Christ, Skye

      v_kahleranderson Sister how nice to see you at my hub of love. I am touched.You keep working at trusting in God. It will come, if you desire it. Stay in His word sister. He ALWAYS comes through. I know that I just pray recieve and believe then on some prayer I waiver with doubt. I am so grateful that God revealed to me not to DOUBT that is like telling Him His word is not true. One time in an audable voice this has only happened 2 times where I heard audable voice. God said to me, 'When are you going to trust me my child Davids paycheck is not your souce I am' I will never forget it sis, since that day I do not have a trust issue.

      I have doubted my prayer would come to frutation. No more doubt for this woman of GOD IF GOD says it in HIS WORD it is true. I just did not know what was blocking me. I know today. I am on it sister. You do the same Child of God. Love You.

      A favorite Christian rationalization for why God does not answer our prayer to eliminate cancer is because "it would take away free will." The logic: If you pray and God answers your prayer, then God would have revealed himself to you, and you would know that God exists. That would take away your free will to believe in him. Of course, if this is true, then by default all of Jesus' statements about prayer in the Bible are false. It means that God cannot answer any prayer. Also, why is a God who must remain hidden like this incarnating himself and writing the Bible?

      If Jesus is God, and if God is perfect, why aren't all of Jesus's verses about prayer true? Was Jesus exagerating? Was he fibbing? If Jesus is perfect, why wouldn't he speak the truth? Why doesn't a prayer to cure cancer worldwide tomorrow work?

      Believers have many different ways to explain why all these verses in the Bible do not work, even if you are praying sincerely, unselfishly and non-materialistically, and even if the answer to your prayer would help millions of people and glorify God in the process. They will say things like this:

      "You need to understand what Jesus was saying in the context the first century civilization in which he was speaking..."


      "When Jesus talked about 'moving a mountain', he was speaking metaphorically. When someone says, 'it is raining cats and dogs,' no one takes him literally. Jesus was using a figure of speech rather than speaking literally..."


      God is not a thing. He is a being. He has a will. He has desires. He relates to people. He has personality traits. Prayer is a fancy word for talking to God. God, who knows everything, even before we say it, knows the difference between our thoughts and wishes, and when we are actually addressing him. He hears our prayers and responds. His responses are based on his personal decisions. We cannot predict how he will respond to our prayers... [ref]

      The problem is, all of these rationalizations miss two important points:

      1. God is supposed to be an all-powerful, all-knowing, perfect being.

      2. The statement, "Nothing will be impossible for you", along with the other Bible verses quoted above, are false. The fact is, lots of things are impossible for you.

      If a perfect being is going to make statements about how prayer works in the Bible, then three things are certain: 1) He would speak clearly, 2) he would say what he means, and 3) he would speak the truth. That is what "being perfect" is all about. A perfect, all-knowing God would know that people would be reading the Bible 2,000 years later, and therefore he would not use first-century idioms (he would say what he means). He would know that normal people will be reading the Bible and interpreting it in normal ways, so he would speak in such a way as to avoid mis-interpretation (he would speak clearly). He would know that when you say, "Nothing will be impossible for you", that what it means is, "Nothing will be impossible for you" and he would make sure that the statement "Nothing will be impossible for you" is accurate (he would speak the truth). If God says it, it should be true -- otherwise he is not perfect.

      Unfortunately, the fact is that thousands of things are impossible for you no matter how much you pray, and no one (including Jesus) has ever moved a mountain.

      In order to see the truth, you need to accept the fact that all of the above verses are wrong. The fact is, God does not answer prayers. The reason why God does not answer your prayers is simple: God is imaginary.

      You can find many believers who will say, "The reason why scientific experiments fail to detect God is because God must remain hidden. He does not answer prayers if he knows that he will be detected."

      In order to see the truth, you need to accept that this explanation is silly. If God must remain hidden, then he cannot answer any prayers. Any "answered prayer" would expose God.

      The whole notion that "God" must remain "hidden" is a total cross-threading of religious doctrine. On the one hand, believers will say that "God wrote the Bible, God incarnated himself and died on the cross for us, and God answers millions of prayers on earth every day." Then in the next breath they will say, "God must remain hidden." God obviously cannot "remain hidden" and "incarnate himself." These two items are mutually exclusive. Therefore, the explanation that "God must remain hidden" is impossible. As soon as you accept how impossible it is, you can begin to see see that God is imaginary.

      In order to see the truth, you need to accept the fact that the scientific evidence is accurate and irrefutable. We have scientifically proven that God does not answer any prayers on earth. Every single "answered prayer" is nothing more than a coincidence.

      We can see reality by looking at a simple example. Imagine that the rate of remission for some particularly nasty type of cancer is 5%. That means that if 20 people get this type of cancer, it is almost always fatal. Only one in twenty of the people who get the disease will survive. Knowing this, you can see what happens if we actually analyze prayer:

      • 20 believers contract the disease

      • All of them have read James 5:15, so all of them pray.

      • 19 of them die

      • The one who lives proclaims, "I prayed to the Lord and the Lord answered my prayers! My disease is cured! It is a miracle! I KNEW God would answer my prayers!"

      • You never hear about the 19 who died. No one ever writes about them in a magazine. "Person prays, then dies" is not a great headline. And since they are dead, you will never hear from any of these people.

      • Therefore, if you don't look at all the facts around the "answered prayer," and you only hear about the one out of twenty prayers that succeed, it appears that prayer is successful.

      The fact is, believers who pray die from this disease at exactly the same rate as people who do not.

      We can see the reality of this situation simply by opening our eyes and looking at the data. But we do have to open our eyes -- We have to look at both the successes AND the failures of prayer to see the reality of our world. When we take a scientific approach and we do look at both sides, we see what is really happening. God does not answer any prayers because God is imaginary

      Please pray for me lol

      Learning to hear and recognize God's voice is important to our prayer life. How fervent are our prayers? There are examples in the Bible where fervency in prayer brought answers as well. The list can certainly go on and on. Keep pursuing that communication with Him.

      Speaking with and listening to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have been daily habit to me for so long, that it is automatic - like a computer program running inthe background. At times, prayers are answered before I even think of the words; so I am thankful for this relationship(s).

      God bless you skye2day, this hub is very well done and so beautiful. You said everything that will encourage and inspire one's life. Prayer is one of the most powerful weapons God gave us. Prayer changes things. Prayer will bring God into our situation. God anticipates our needs and desires, in Isaiah 65:24 God says, "And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer, and while they are yet speaking I will hear." My beloved Sister in Christ, thank you for sharing, I love it. I love everything that has to do with Prayer, because I am a prayer warrior. Good job! If you get a chance read my hubs, " God says call out to Him and He will answer us" also "The Resurrection Body has Power" I love you in the Lord, stay blessed.

      Skye you put a smile on my face when I read, "have you ever wondered why its been along time since your prayer has not been answered".am I that special that i have my prayers answered when I ask everytime, on time, right away, what I have written here yes all my prayers are answered at that time, what I mean is that when I had my ops I received the healing right away, and for everything else I ask for God gives it to me in evrything I ask for from my heart. "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want." Psalm 23:1

      I believe this is why my prayers get answered at the time of asking, Jesus did say that we are not to doubt, then we receive the answer.

      Some prayers are answered almost before we finish them.

      Some prayers are answered but not as we wish them to be.

      Some prayers are answered but it takes for ever.

      Fact is all prayer is answered, but are we paying attention or are we expecting a certain answer and get another.

      Well done sister Skye - Beautiful! God always hears our prayers and responds to them. It's just the answer doesn't necessarily come as fast as we want someitmes.

      Daniel prayed and fasted for 21 days - God answered the prayer on the first day, but the enemy held up the angel who was sent and delayed him a bit (Dan.10:12-14) from delivering the blessing. There may often be extenuating circumstances we are not aware of. We all just need a little patience (and faith) sometimes because our Father in Heaven does know everything we need. Be blessed...

      I wonder if sometimes God doesn't provide the answer, and we're just too busy to notice! I know that's been true in my life at times--just a thought. Thanks for sharing on this important topic!
