Prayer is our way of talking to God. We pray when we are troubled, when we are worried, when we face challenges, when we cannot bear the pain, when we have questions, when we have our wishes and we ask God to give them, when we are so blessed and thankful, and when we are looking for guidance, provision, protection and breakthrough. There are many ways how people are led to prayer; but we all pray because we know only God can answer our questions and He’s the only one who can help us.
God also has His ways on answering our prayers. Below are the three ways God answers our prayers:
Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
But if we are asking for something that needs to be changed or done, that would be depending on His will and His plan for you. Most of the time He answers yes, if it is for the better, if it will lead us to Him, or if it would be the best for everybody. If we pray for healing, financial help, guidance and protection, God can say yes, because God loves us and He will not leave us forsaken.
Mark 11:24 “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
Romans 12:2 “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his goo, pleasing and perfect will.”
Whatever answer we get, we must not forget to be thankful. All we need to do is trust His will and His plan. His plan is to prosper us and not to harm us. Always remember that if God is for us, then who can be against us? Keep on praying!
