1 Timothy 2:1-2 urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.
1 John 5:14 And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. Let us be sensitive to the Spirit, He will teach us how to pray so that our prayers bear fruits. Pray as you can’t. There is no conducive place nor time to pray. God knows what is best for us. Romans 8:27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven. When you offer prayer in panic, you expect God to act based on your feelings and don’t exercise patience in waiting. You expect things to happen immediately. When people visits a ministry where there is deliverance, they often go back dejected if the results are not what they expected. This often lead to doubt on the calling of the servant of God. John 11:5-6 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So, when He heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was.
At the appointed time, there is healing and deliverance. Servants of God can declare breakthrough but few testifies afterwards not that the others did not believe but it was not the appointed time for them. Habakkuk 2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.
Fix your eyes on the promises, God will never leave you nor forsake you. He knows your pain and said, the grace is enough to see you through.
When situations comes, not only does your attitude changes, even your prayer. Luke 18:1 One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up.
A hungry person does not need prayer, he need food. When a person is hungry, you cannot say let’s pray. First sort out the hunger then the scripture will make sense.James 2:15-17 Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”-but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.
