God is Answering Your Prayers, So Give Praise (Praise Your Way Day 8)

Today’s Reading

This is the [remarkable degree of] confidence which we [as believers are entitled to] have before Him: that if we ask anything according to His will, [that is, consistent with His plan and purpose] He hears us.

And if we know [for a fact, as indeed we do] that He hears and listens to us in whatever we ask, we [also] know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted to us] the requests which we have asked from Him. – 1 John 5:14-15(AMP)


Reflection

Many times we wonder if the prayers we have said, declared and made will be answered. Well, I got good news for you.

Yes. Your prayers, made according to God’s Words, are being answered.

Sometimes we wrongly adjudge our prayers by how we feel. We think that if we feel great and shaky about the prayers we have made, then they would be answered. But if we feel dried and less charismatic, then our prayers did not reach heaven.

Yes, I don’t know why we do feel, sometimes, that our prayers did not reach heaven.

But thank God. Our prayers are not answered based on our feelings. The Scripture above says that once we have prayed according to God’s will, that is according to the WORD OF GOD, that we have answers to our prayers.

That means all the prayers and declarations you have been making before now getting answered. You may not have seen them, but God is answering your prayers.

So what should you do next?

  • Have that consciousness that God is answering your prayers
  • Repent from judging your prayers based on your feeling
  • Give praise to God.

Let us stop judging our prayers by how we feel. Feelings have nothing to do with how God answers prayers. 


Meditate on the Following Scriptures

Mark 11:24 – Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

1 John 5:14-15 – And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us.

John 15:7 – If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Matthew 7:7 – Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Jeremiah 33:3 – Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

1 John 3:22 – And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

Jeremiah 29:12 – Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.

Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

How to Participate in the Praise Your Way

  1. Spend 30 (or more) minutes every day in personal praise and thanksgiving. Wake up in the middle of the night and sing and praise and worship God
  2. Write out all your prayer requests on a paper, every present challenge or issue that needs to be settled. But instead of begging, praise God. Wave the paper before God daily in praise and drop it to the ground and dance over them.
  3. Pray for others. Spend 10 (or more) minutes every day to pray for others.
  4. No matter how pressing your personal needs are, take your eyes away from them, only praise God and intercede for others
  5.  Whatever can inspire praise and worship in you, involve in it this month – get songs, sing, dance, worship, etc.
  6. Be very very watchful. God will speak to you and give you strange ideas and directions this period. Write down every new thought and revelation that God brings to your heart or through a vision or dream
  7. Share your praise report. Share your testimonies
