One of the big troubles when it comes to Christian prayer is that people tend to pray inaccurately. They don’t really pray about anything in particular and therein lies the problem. One of the keys to answered prayer is being accurate when you pray. An increase in accuracy leads to an increase in accurate results.
The first step towards being more specific when praying is to base your prayer on the Bible. Basing your prayer on what God says is praying like you are His child as opposed to praying like a servant.
The first step towards answered prayer is to pray in Jesus name. That’s right, use His name when you pray because through Him, you have immediate access to God. You are no longer an outsider. Whether it’s long prayer of short daily prayers, using Christ’s name garners amazing results.
Now that Jesus has rose from the dead, He is at the right hand of the Father as your intercessor. Through His amazing sacrifice, you can commune with God whenever you like through His name.
The next step to seeing results through prayer is believing that God has heard you and that you will receive the results that you seek. When you pray and believe you receive the answer, the faith in your heart goes into action and the very thing you desire brought into physical manifestation.
By basing your prayer on God’s Word and trusting Him, He watches over His Word to perform it and He is obligated to see the results come to pass. He gave the prayer His promise and it’s up to Him to bring it to pass.
The third step is just as important as the two previous ones. If you want to see results when you pray, live in forgiveness towards others. Yes, when you stand praying, forgive. Even if you are justified in not forgiving someone or you have wronged someone, seek forgiveness.
The reason for this is because God has clearly stated that it is a requirement to answered prayer. Faith will simply not work in a heart that has any unforgiveness.
The fourth step is rely on the mighty Holy Ghost. He lives inside of you so look to Him to lead and guide you when you pray. Place your faith in his ability to take hold together with you in prayer. The Spirit of God will pray through your spirit in unknown tongues when you do not know how or what to pray. You can trust Him to pray in alignment with God’s will for the situation.
In conclusion, the Lord has given specific instructions regarding getting our prayers answered. Thanks to Jesus, we can come boldly to the throne of God and expect answers when we pray in faith accurately.
