When you pray, believe that you will receive what you ask for. You are praying His will, right?
“Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” Mark 11:24
Every time we pray, we can know that our prayer will be answered.
“How?”, you ask. Pray for what God wants to happen! We are releasing God’s will in the earth when we pray. But prayer demands relationship with Him so that we know what His will is. We have to be in right standing with Him. Prayer is God training me to be like Him.
He wants us to rule and reign. He wants us to make decrees and declarations of His will. As in heaven so on earth. We are His agents here on earth.
There is strategy involved. We check in with Him. He tells us what He wants done, and we speak it into existence in this realm. Sometimes it takes a little time to hear Him clearly. We are learning faith and patience. But when we know His will, we should pray and know that it will come to pass. And we should expect measurable results.
As hurricane Harvey has hit the Texas coast I have prayed over my neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods and all of Katy. I actually took a prayer walk and prayed that God would protect us and cause the storm to dissipate and not do as much damage as they predicted it would. I suggested to my neighbors on our neighborhood website that they do the same thing. Many said that they were praying, too. Today, there was a tornado warning in our region. I went out and spoke to the storm clouds, “Peace, be still”. Jesus did it. He expects us to do what He did. And He gave us His authority to do it.
So just do it! And believe you will receive. Expect measurable results.
