GOD HEARS AND ACTS ON YOUR WORDS TOO: MY EXPERIENCE.

The day I became more careful with prayers and whispers to God was the day I challenged God and say, if you are the one providing for me, if my sustainance was not a mere coincidence, make things to be difficult for me. I said this prayer while I was an undergraduate at FUT, Owerri. It was a dangerous prayer and I must tell you that God, in the same manner he has been answering my prayers for sustainance allowed untold hardship to visit me. I suffered to the extent that I was convinced that my sustainance was not a mere coincidence. I prayed again and asked God to end the suffering and he did too. It would be later in life that I would understand that God answers our prayers the way we pray it.

And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive. Mathew 21:22.

The scriptures above says “whatever”. Later in life too, I understood that we do not really know what we should pray for. That is why praying in the spirit and praying based on the word of God are the two fail proof strategies to pray according to the will of God.

God actually wants you to pray and get results. Hence He asserted: Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know. Jeremiah 33:3.

Answered prayers indeed reveals God’s glory. We are often awed when we realise that the Almighty could listen to feeble and frail beings like us. This was what David experienced that made him shouted:

LORD, what are human beings that you care for them, mere mortals that you think of them? Psalm 144:3.

You see, God listens to you to hear what you want. Let God not hear complaints and regrets when he listens to you. Let God not feel fear and despair when he listens to your heartbeat. Let God not hear you glorifying and magnifying challenges and your adversaries. Do exactly what the scriptures have prescribed:

Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.

There is guarantee in the certainty of God answering and that was what Jesus emphasized when he said:

And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive. Mathew 21:22.

So, what are you going to do: say SMART prayers. Let your prayer address Specific and important need. Be able to Measure what the Lord has done, that’s where testimonies originate. Act in faith and utmost belief in God. Relax as God is in Control allowing patience to do its work. Thank the Lord when it is done.

Praise the Lord!
