Prayer’s That Get Answers

There is nothing more frustrating than praying and not getting answers. Have you ever felt like God is ignoring you? It can be very discouraging. 

But I have good news for you today. In this season of Prayer Connect: Rev Wildfire Live, I know God is answering prayers. The Rev is on assignment from the Holy Spirit and I know things are moving and the Father is listening. 

I want to share with us today something that the Holy Spirit has shown me a few months ago. It is in line with what Rev was just talking about a couple days back during Prayer Connect.

One morning I woke to the Spirit telling me “pray that we will be one”. So I immediately began to pray that, and was led to the prayer our precious Jesus prayed just before He went to the cross.

John 17:21| “I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.”

I began to meditate on how He and the Father are one and what that means. One thing that struck me was something that Jesus said, “He only says what He hears the Father say”. 

Then as I continued to ponder on that it was quickened in my spirit about the Lord’s Prayer. 

Matthew 6:9,10| This, then, is how you should pray: “Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

Then another… 

Romans 8:27| “And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will.”

Jesus was saying pray in harmony with Heaven. And I know Jesus always prayed in harmony with Gods will. I also know that Jesus prayers were always answered. 

1 John 5:14| “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to HIS WILL, he hears us.”

Here are a two ways to make sure you are praying according to His will:

1.) Listen to the Spirit and pray Holy Spirit inspired prayers. God has something on His mind today. Seek His mind out. Tune into the beat of His heart. Listen, do you hear it? What is He saying? 

1 Corinthians 2:11| “For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.”

When you hear Him and begin to line your prayers with His heart, phenomenal things will begin to happen. You will experience heaven; the kingdom of God will manifest.

2.) Pray in the Spirit. In this way you can’t mess it up the prayers with your soulish desires and your own will because He always prays in accordance to the will of the Father. It’s a “fool proof” way to pray.  

Romans 8:27| And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.”

Today, ask the Holy Spirit to quiet your soul and help you to hear heaven, to tune into Gods heart and pray what you hear from Heaven. Then take time to pray in the Spirit (in harmony with Gods will) over your day, yourself, your children, spouse, family, job, finances, ministry, and so on.
