Now, here’s how to get your prayers answered 100% of the time:
Prayer is our supernatural connection to the Father, and there’s nothing more rewarding than going “boldly to the throne of grace” (Hebrews 4:16). Some people pray, but are frustrated because they don’t receive the answers they want.
Here’s how to get your prayers answered 100% of the time: Pray God’s Word back to Him.
That way, we’re always praying in accordance with His will, rather than speculating on what He wants to do for us.
How can you figure out what God’s will is?
Every situation you and I will ever face in our lives has a solution, and the Bible either says exactly what we should do in each situation, or it contains principles we can use to figure out the answers based on God’s principles.
God’s Word, the Bible, contains His entire plan for humanity.
If we pray God’s Word back to Him, we are giving Him permission to do things on the earth that He has been wanting to do all along.
So how do you start praying God’s Word back to Him?
Find a Scripture passage that speaks to you, whether it’s a promise you want to see come true in your life or a description of how you’re feeling right now. Psalms, Proverbs, Ephesians, John, and Galatians are some good places to start as you read your Bible.
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye,” says Psalm 32:8, and if you were praying this passage back to God, you might say, “Lord, I don’t know how to handle the things I’ll encounter today.”
An example of praying about the way you feel right now:
When I’m dealing with difficult emotions, one of my favorite passages to pray is Psalm 3. My prayer would go something like this: Father, You are my Shield. You are my Defense. And I’m going to rest in You (and) watch You move.
Finally, here’s an example of a theological passage that you’d want to pray:
Ephesians 1:17-18 is one of the most beautiful passages I’ve ever read, and it’s something the Apostle Paul was praying for the Ephesians to experience in their lives. You can pray this passage, as well as any other passage about your relationship with God, back to God.
“Father God, I thank You that You are my Father.
I pray that You would give me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You, that You would open my eyes, that You would give me understanding and enlightenment, that You would fill me with Your hope, and that You would help me to walk in Your calling on my life every second I am alive.
When you pray for God’s own will to happen, He can answer your prayers 100% of the time.
