Prayer

God Does Answer Prayer

Psalm 86:6
Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; And attend to the voice of my supplications.
NKJV

This is often the hardest part of our prayer life. As has been seen, the basis of prayer is our faith in God. This faith translates into the fact that He will listen to our prayers and will act upon them. This provides us with great comfort and boldness.
1 John 5:13-15 13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life. 14 This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him. NASB

When we go to God with this confidence, we know that He will answer our prayers in His Will. This provides us with the underlying principle of prayer, namely, that the answers to all of our prayers must be in accordance with God's Will.

God's answers are always there -- Yes, No, or Wait. We need to develop patience and trust God as we seek the answers to our prayers. He is sovereign. He is in control. He knows what is best. We just need to remember this all the time.

At the same time, we may find in the Scriptures some general conditions for answered prayer are

If then we pray in God's will, based upon the wisdom we have received, and then act upon the power of this wisdom, our prayers will be answered -- 100% of the time. And we will know and understand the answers provided by God are the only answers possible.
