Psalms 24:1-2 The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the waters.
I heard someone say that they did not feel that their prayers were getting through. They did not feel their prayers were being heard. They did not feel their prayers were going up. They did not feel their prayers were being answered. I said they have to keep praying.
In Daniel 10, Daniel prayed and fasted for 3 weeks. At the end of three weeks, Archangel Gabriel came in response to Daniel’s prayer. The archangel had been delayed by battle with the prince of Persia. But if Daneil had not fasted and prayed continuously, the angel might have turned back, or assumed that it was not that important to Daniel, or even may have assumed that Daniel no longer needed help from Lord God. We cannot give up if we do not want Lord God to give up.
And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, which is Hiddekel; Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude. And I Daniel alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves. Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me: for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no strength. Yet heard I the voice of his words: and when I heardthe voice of his words, then was I in a deep sleep on my face, and my face toward the ground. And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands. And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling. Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.
In addition, I know because I have heard it, some evil people reverse prayer, cancel prayer, or bind prayer. Lord God will judge those people, but you cannot give up. You have to keep praying. If someone evil has cancelled your prayer, it is so important that you pray consistently again and again to make sure your prayer gets through to Lord God.
1 Thessalonians 5:17-18
Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Prayer has to be sincere and repeated. A prayer just said once is heard once. A prayer said again and again is a true cry to God. My own healing came after praying the same prayer day after day for over a year. Do not expect immediate answers and do not give up. Keep praying.
Philippians 4: 6-7
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
So please remember this, when you pray you are maintaining closeness with God. Spending time with God, centering yourself in God’s word, and being where God wants you to be is part of your journey. Letting God know that you are here with him and your thoughts are with him is part of what praying is about. Lord God sees your heart and your intentions.
In my prayers, I make sure that I address my prayers to Lord God and Christ Jesus. I also sometimes identify myself although God knows exactly who I am, I sometimes get a quicker response. Start your prayers with repentance. Make sure you have a clean heart. Remember that even though you can pray anywhere, and using any posture, if you pray everyday at approximately the same time, Lord God will know to meet you there. Praying silently is not as effective as praying aloud. If you still feel that you are not being heard, try writing your prayers.
The Lord is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
This is really on my heart. There are a lot of people who have been hindered greatly by the devil. Some of them might be tempted to give up. If by chance, the worst happens and God does not hear your prayers, remember this. When God judges everyone, and he judges every idle word, he will see your words were prayers and knowing that about your words will highly influence his judgement of you. Your repentance will be heard. Your cry for help will finally be heard and your request for God’s justice will be granted because you never gave up.
In the name of Christ Jesus, I pray to Lord God in the highest heaven and Christ Jesus of Nazareth requesting that Lord God hear this prayer and help me. Please heal my body, my soul, and my spirit. Please put me back together in one piece in my own body that I was born to this lifetime. Please prevent them from stealing my blessings, my peace, my spirit, or my livelihood. Please turn their curses away from me and away from my life. Please grant restoration to me. Please grant me salvation in Christ Jesus once again and please save my soul and my metaphysical being. I love you. I pray this request in the name of Christ Jesus. Amen.
