There are certain conditions that will make your prayers to be effective and answerable before God, some of these conditions are analysed below.
1. Faith : This can be defined as "The substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Therefore, for your prayers to be effective and answerable before God, you must have assurance that God will surely answer your prayers, you must have absolute trust in God and His power to do all things. Apostle James admonished us to pray in faith, " 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." Anyone that fails to pray in faith will not receive any thing of the Lord.
Righteousness : Your prayers must come from the heart of righteousness, that is, purity of heart. Your heart must be freed from sin, therefore, for your prayers to be effective, you must abstain from iniquities. James 5 : 16 says, " ... The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."
3. Perseverance : This is another condition you must meet for your prayer to be effective and answerable before God. You must persevere and have a complete trust in the God while praying to Him.
4. Humility : Whenever you come to God in prayers, you must come with humility, you must humble yourself before God. Lowliness of heart and absence of self-exaltation, when you humble yourself before God, He will exalt you, but if you exalt yourself, you will be abased. Therefore, always coming to the Lord in prayers in total submission to the will of God.
My esteemed readers, if you can meet all the above conditions, your prayers will be effective and answerable before God.
May the good Lord answer all your prayers, in the name of Jesus Christ.
