Want Your Prayers Answered? Find Out How

Updated on September 29, 2015

Prayer and Supplication Is An Active Flow of Communication

Having our prayers answered is surprisingly reliant on our abilities to connect to God. His Word outlines specifically how to use prayer as a tool for empowerment.
Having our prayers answered is surprisingly reliant on our abilities to connect to God. His Word outlines specifically how to use prayer as a tool for empowerment.

The Universal Connection To The Creator Is Prayer

Have you ever noticed that no matter where in the world you may travel, or what divides different cultures each Spiritual or Religious group worldwide and throughout time pray, worship, and acknowledge the intervention of a deity through prayer.

Even a non-believer is required to acknowledge God in court in order to sit in court under oath. Just as kids need to learn how to speak, walk, and interact with their parents, we have to learn how to walk and talk with God. Now we will examine prayer through The Holy Bible specifically detailed with belief in Christ. However, these principles can hold true for any petition to the Most High.

Silent Reverence

Find a quiet place. If you are the type of person who likes sounds try a secluded beach side or have a fountain. The sound of running water symbolizes flow. The whole idea is to reach a place of focus on the spirit where physical aspects of life are not dominating the active space in your mind. Every person has a personal resevoir connecting one's life to God's Infinite Source. Become silent and you are taking the first step towards the Divine Manner in which to reverence The Almighty.

Psalm 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Give Adoration

Revelation 19:7 Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for athe marriage of the Lamb has come, and bhis Bride has made herself ready;
Revelation 19:7 Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for athe marriage of the Lamb has come, and bhis Bride has made herself ready;

"Have I Ever Told You How Wonderful You Are?"...

Just as Christ loves Us as His Bride, it is also expected that we love Christ as a bride loves her husband. In a relationship among people, we often portray in countless television comedies a person asking for something or requesting something giving the other person a compliment. Often the joking response is "O.k., what do you want?"

This is the same concept of adding adoration to our prayer. Adoration establishes that we acknowledge our relationship with the Most High, and that we are aware of His Goodness.

Authentic, sincere adoration is a great way to connect with anyone receiving love. So why not make sure that The Creator of the Universe is appreciated for His Good Works?

Confess With Your Mouth

We Confess To Acknowledge God's Perfection To Our Imperfection

Psalm 103:11-12King James Version (KJV)

11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

The relationship we have with Our Heavenly Father is not to be condemned, but to receive God's unconditional love.

Just as a small child would tell his father if something threatened his safety, God wants us to confess that we acknowledge the threat of sin to destroy us. Our confession is to serve us in God's Grace, acknowledge the Power of Christ, and to request His intervention in our lives.

Give Thanks For Your Current Circumstances

Being Thankful Now Exercises Faith and God's Goodness In You Right Now

When praying, gratefulness is very crucial. As people we give each gifts and show our appreciation for the thought. If we can thank people for kind considerations, how much more does God's Blessings, Anointing, and Mercies surpass that of any mortal man.

Psalm 107:1
O give thanks unto the LORD, for he isgood: for his mercy endureth for ever.

No matter the circumstance we always have at least one reason to be grateful. Be creative in finding your source of appreciation. Looking to the past not for failures, but for deliverance is an easy and simple way to find your place of appreciation.

Make Supplication

Philippians 4:6

King James Version (KJV)

Worry for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

We are now able to make our requests known. It is important that asking God is an act of humble and genuine nature that requires deep thought. Always consider the way others will be impacted by your prayers.

Matthew 7:7


Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Specify Your Request

Often times when we pray we ask for vague or ambiguous things that can be manifested in a plethora of ways. For example asking God to "Bless" you can come to pass in an innumerable amount of this ways. If you need a supernatural intervention be sure to include details outlined in God's Word.

The following is an example of what scripture to use in order to specify a request for healing:

James 5:14- Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

James 5:15- And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

Matthew 10:1- And when he had called unto [him] his twelve disciples, he gave them power [against] unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

James 5:16- Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

3 John 1:2- Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Philippians 4:19- But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Matthew 10:8- Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Making God's Word your prayer is the best way to exercise your faith while simultaneously praying in a specific manner.

Secure The Promise, Plead The Case, And Live In Expectation

Walk By Faith

To wrap up an effective prayer secure the promises outlined in the scriptures. By using specific scripture in God's Word you are pleading a powerful case. Also using The Word displays your belief. The last and final aspects of successful prayer is to give thanks but this time for God's answering your current supplication. Thank God in advance in order to live in expectation and practice active belief. Follow the Divine Order of petitioning Heaven with patience and consistency to see the Powerful Hand of The Most High.

Make Time To Study The Bible

Now matter where we find ourselves in the world, or how busy we may become, taking one tenth or more of our time per day to study is ideal.
