Do you believe God can answer prayers? Yes. Believe that God will move in your life. But, you must first ask God! Here are numerous scriptures that reiterate the importance of asking God. This is not being religious – this is forming and maintaining a relationship with the God who not only created you, but created the entire universe. God’s word is clear – ask Him! First, you must ask in Jesus’ Name. Second, you must believe that God answers your prayer. Even if you don’t see the answer manifested immediately, there may be reasons beyond what you can see that are causing the manifestation to come at just the right time. Third, thank God that He has answered your prayer. Remember – don’t go by your feelings – stand firm on the Word of God!
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
