Today we will take a look at another aspect of things that hinder our prayers from being answered. We have already seen that doubt and unbelief will hinder our prayers from being answered but today we will be looking at ” HIS WILL”.
The scripture says “…anything we ask in his will, he will hear us”. Is your prayer according to His will?
If you are praying contrary to his will, you are just wasting your time, such prayers cannot be answered.
The scripture says “he honours His word above even his name”. Friends through my walk with the Lord for almost two decades, I can tell you that some of our prayers are an exercise in futility.
Let me give you an example :
1. I remember someone who definitely did some under hand shady deals asking me to pray for him not to be caught. I did then but I later got to understand that you cannot sow bad seeds and pray for bounty harvest of good crops. Needless to say the prayer was not answered.
2. I also remember praying zealously for God to make me POOR after listening to a fiery preacher say that poverty is holiness. Your guess is as good as mine the answer to that prayer was negative.
How do you know His will then? Don’t go too far, His will is already revealed to you and I in His word. “He that wills to know his will, will he make to understand the doctrine”. Search through the scriptures, in it is His will revealed to us. For answers to your prayer, remove doubt and unbelief from your system and pray according to His will.
Answered prayers will be yours brethren in Jesus name as do these things.
