Many of us these days are careless in our prayers. We pray with ignorance and I believe God will open our eyes with these truth told by Pastor Paul Eneche
There are ingredients that guarantees prayer results according to Paul Eneche.
A buoyant relationship with God
The Bible says our father who are in heaven not our lender who art in heaven,that connotes relationship. Relationship is the authentic basis for request. A wife could ask the husband more boldly for things than any other person because there is a relationship. Request from the heavenly father in the presence of a relationship is called prayer,when request happens in the absence of a relationship it is called begging. So the 1st ingredient is a buoyant relationship such that you talk to God even when there is no need.
The consciousness of the faithfulness of God
Heb.11.6 - But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." The knowledge that God has not called you to seek him in vain empowers effective and productive praying.Isa.45.19 - I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
The revelation of the Word
John.15.7 - If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
1Kgs.18.36 - And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.
The word of God is the fuel for prayer. The more word loaded you are the more fire full and impactful your prayers will be. The word of God shows us examples of answered prayers,it shows us that you can pray and be answered. It shows us the attitude of God towards the prayers of his people. Prayer goes hand in hand with the word. If you want to pray well,know that word well
The knowledge of God's Will
1John.5.14 - And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
1John.5.15 - And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
Knowing what God wants is a fuel of prayer. The will of God is answered prayer that is waiting for someone to pray it. God wants Nigeria to explode in revival that is already an answered prayer wanting to be prayed. God wants to drop a mantle on you to roar your family and roar the demons of your generations in white you are aware of,that is answered prayer wanting to be prayed.
You don't need to beg God to do what is in his desires to do. God already discovered it before you desired it. That is why prayer victory begins where the will of God is.
Vibrant faith in God
Heb.11.6 - But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Jas.1.6 - But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
Length of prayer is important but the faith in the prayer is more important because it is the faith that moves God not the length
Pastor Paul Eneche therefore gave two warnings
- Refuse to pray religiously or for the fufillment of all righteousness. Pray and expect results.
- Pray passionately
Jas.5.6 - Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.
Jas.5.17 - Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
As long as you take all this examples Seriously and you plan your life according to the Word of God,your prayer life will be amazing as you will hear from God and get answers from him.
