The Bible says that Lack if you ask not. Prayer is a communication tool between God and people. Christians talk to God and he also answers. Christians must prayer about everything. Ask anything in My name. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. (John 14:14).
Esther, Abraham, Moses, Daniel, Hannah, Nehemiah, Elijah, Elisha, Deborah, Jesus Christ and Peter are prayer warriors in the bible all Christians must emulate. God may not answer prayers because of many reasons.
Ignorance of the right prayer tactics contributes to God not answering. Praying only may not work all the time.
You may need to combine fasting with prayer to overcome something at times. Fasting is going without food secretly for a particular period of time.
Esther had to pray and fast for three days to save the Jews according to Esther 4:16. Just after getting baptized, Jesus undertook a 40-day fast in the desert.
Fasting brings you in line with God to seek his will. God answered Cornelius after fasting and praying according to Act 10:30.
You can fast like how Daniel, Esther (3days) and Jesus (40 days) fasted. If you are not able then you can do hourly fasting.
God will not answer a prayer if it is not in his will. Sometimes prayer requests are not answered because it is based on personal desires not his will.
For example cheating and stealing. Some Christians simply delegate the prayer exercises to others. If we pray through his son Jesus Christ, we access God.
God may seem not to answer prayers of impatient people. We are reminded by the bible to pray without ceasing in Luke 6:12. Most people give up on God before He even answers.
“The lord promises to help all people. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.”(Exodus 14; 14). Timing of your prayer can determine whether it is answered or not.
You have to pray extra at some particular times of the day referred to as gates of time. There known gates of time like 6am, 12pm, 3pm and 6pm. Just do not waste this precious time by not contacting God even if it is only a five minutes.
Have you ever wondered what happens to some of your prayers when they are not through the gates of time? Jesus Christ, apostles, prophets prayed at specific times. That is why some churches have ‘hours of prayer’ programmes.
Success of your prayers depends on how you pray. Read the bible for more understanding of the tactic. Start with these verses on when to pray: Mark 1:35, Acts 3:1, and Psalm 5:3.
Sometimes God may not answer because there is no alter for him. Worship and praise God before prayer. If the prayer is not clear then God may not answer. Bible reminds reason to pray according to Mathew 6:6 .Some people lack Faith.
If you do not trust that God can give you anything then He will not answer. Remember the woman who was healed because of her faith.
Find time to pray alone without distractions from others. Jesus prayed alone without the disciples according to Luke 9:18. Your Prayer must be similar to the lord’s prayer according to Luke 11:1.
God will not answer your prayers if you have not repented your sins .Unconfessed sins makes God not to hear prayers according to Isaiah 59:2-3.
God may also not answer if people continue not to forgive others. Mathew 6:14-15, commands us to forgive those that wrong us in order for God to forgive us in return Disobedience of man may make God not to answer his prayer.
When the Lustful ones ask, they will not be answered. Those with Wrong motives can never have answered prayers according to James 4:2-3.
God answers all prayers. Bible commands us to ask for anything in his name and it shall be given to us. It is just that his timing is different from that of people.
With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day according to 2 Peter 3:8. God promises to answer when we ask Him anything as it is in Jeremiah 33:3.Prayer helps Christians build a relationship with God.
You need to understand God’s ‘no’ in order to receive his ‘yes’. Christians must always have a staying spirit.
Staying spirit means you do not give up on God no matter what happens. Sometimes people think that God has not acted on their prayers yet it is them who do not listen. Do you pray and wait for God to answer you? Always leave time for God to answer.
