How May I Have My Prayers Answered?

 For our prayers to be answered there are certain things that have to be met on our part. We cannot live a sinful life in our daily walk and turn to God at will and bring our shopping list for Him to fill.
In the conversation between the blind man that was healed and the observers, he rightly said, Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth His will, him he heareth. John 9:31 We must first give our hearts to God, then we become His child, and God loves to take care of His children. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, he shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. John 15:7.

Everything we ask for may not be the best for us. God answers every prayer, it may be yes or no, or wait awhile. Remember we cannot dictate to God, He is loving and gracious, but we must wait on Him. And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: and if we know he heareth us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. I John 5: 14,15 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments,and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. I John 3:22

Satan loves to dampen our faith by constantly telling us we are unfit and undeserving to receive things from God. We may well be undeserving but God loves to give to His children. For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11

One of the most encouraging words for us to pray comes from the words of Jeremiah. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mightly things, which thou knowest not. Jer. 33:3
