Receiving Answers To Your Prayers
Receiving Answers To Your PrayersBy: Todd Hudnall
At Radiant Church we’re in a study of the Lord’s Prayer. This past Sunday we looked at the subject of petitionary prayer as we studied what it means to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.” As we approach our Father in Heaven with an attitude of daily dependence, grateful contentment and inclusive generosity we are told to ask God for the things we need and desire. Below is a tool we passed out on Sunday that is a helpful checklist in making our requests to God.
Asking In Prayer
- Be In Relationship (John 15:7; Ps 66:18)
- Recognize who God is by worshiping Him and submitting to His kingdom will (Matthew 6:9-1).
- Be certain what you are asking for will bring you closer to the Lord not draw you from Him.
- Be Confident (1 John 5:14; Matt 7:11; Ps 84:11; Heb 4:16)
- Come with confidence that Jesus Christ has given us access into God’s presence.
- Come with confidence that your Heavenly Father delights to hear and answer your requests.
- Be Humble (1 Pet 5:5; Dan 10:12; Is 55:9)
- Remember that Father always knows best.
- Trust our Heavenly Father to give you what you really need.
- Make Your Specific Request (Mark 11:24; John 14:14; 16:24; James 4:2; Mark 10:46)
- Ask specifically for what you need.
- Find Scriptures that pertain to your request.
- Be Persistent (Luke 11:5-10; 18:1-8)
- PUSH – Pray Until Something Happens
- Pray until God says no, redirects your prayer or until the answer comes.
