Are you still waiting for answers to prayers you have been believing God for? Many times, we pray, but we don't see the manifestation of the prayers we are believing God for. At other times the answers come, but they are delayed far past the time we anticipated they would be answered.
A few years back, we did a series of teachings on the subject of prayer, and as a result, we developed a seven-step formula for answered prayer. We developed so much content that we wrote a book on the subject, titled The Bold Prayer Warrior and Fearless Intercessor. We found that if people followed these seven basic principles or steps, they would see the manifestation of their prayers every time.
We must first define prayer. Here is a definition from The Bold Prayer Warrior and Fearless Intercessor.
Prayer is the ability to communicate with God, which involves both God and an individual speaking and listening. Prayer is a privilege that we have as children of the true and living God, to come before God regarding a particular area of our life or in the lives of others, as God attentively listens to our request. Likewise, it is also God's opportunity to speak to us while we listen to Him. It is one of the most powerful tools given to the body of Christ that destroys the works of darkness and manifests the Word of God.
Next, we will identify the seven basic but proven principles of prayer that we have seen manifest answers every time.
—Ask (Matt. 7:7).
—Ask in faith (Mark 11:19-24, James 1:5-8).
—Ask in accordance with the will of God, which is the word of God (John 15:7).
—Ask in the name of Jesus (John 14:13-14).
—Ask with a sincere heart (James 4:3).
—Partner with another believer (Matt.18:18-19).
—Know that God wants to bless you and answer your prayers (Ps. 84:11)
In over 25 years of ministry, we have found that the application of these seven basic principles will always guarantee that your prayers will be answered. Take a moment to listen to the podcast so you can hear the expanded version of this teaching.
