Study in Prayer – January 13 – Pray for Results

Scripture of the Day:  

Matthew 21:22

“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer…”

 Pray for Results

Have you ever heard someone finish a prayer and say something like, “for Jesus sake, amen.?”

That is so foolish. We are praying for our sake – not Jesus sake. AMEN?

We are to pray to the Father – IN THE NAME OF JESUS! We are to pray for RESULTS. Jesus said if we believe whatever it is we are asking God for, that God WILL answer our prayers…if we believe that – THEN we will receive our prayers as answered. DO NOT DOUBT. Amen!

How can you believe in something you do not know?

In order to receive your prayers as answered, you must believe they will be answered. To believe they will be answered, you must base them on the Word of God. How can you base them on the Word of God if you do not know the Word of God? Quick answer – You can’t!

So, first, you must READ what God’s Word has to say about your situation. Whatever it is!

If you need healing, go to the Word and look up – AND READ – every single scripture that deals with healing and Jesus healing the sick. “Well, brother bob, that would take a lot of time…”

I didn’t say you had to do it one sitting. But you should spend at least 30 minutes scriptures. And, in my opinion, if you truly are in need of healing, do it three or four times per day!

“Three or four times per day?”  I don’t have that much time…!  Really? What are you doing at 5am every morning?  “Well, brother bob, I’m sleeping…I work all day…”

Look at where I am right now. It is 5am and I’m doing this every single day. WHY? Because I need a deep dive in prayer. And I’m in the Word every single day. But I needed to FOCUS on prayer. And the Lord impressed upon me to share this study with you. That is what I’m doing. But I have been getting up between 5 and 515 am for years, just to spend the first few minutes of each and every day with the Lord. In His word and in prayer.

Some people want to do that at the end of the day. That’s ok too. But you need to make it part of your daily schedule. Not something you do when you remember. It has to be part of your routine. Amen.

And, if you need an answer to something in particular, like healing – then you need to spend 30 minutes reading healing scriptures. Over and over and over. If you need an answer to financial pressures, read about finances. What to do, sowing and reaping, giving and receiving, etc. Tithing…

The point is – when I said three times per day, if you were truly sick and the doctor told you to take these pills and go for a half mile walk three times per day for the next six months and you will be healed – would you do it? Most people would say yes!

Even if you had a job. You would wake up 30 minutes early and go for your walk before work. At lunch time you would go for a walk instead of McDonald’s or whatever. Then after work you go for your third walk. You would find a way to fit it into your schedule because your doctor said if you would do it – you would be healed…

So why won’t you believe the one who gave the doctor’s their wisdom? Why won’t you believe the One who created all things, including your body. Why won’t you believe the One who created all the silver, all the gold and all the cattle on a thousand hills? Do you think He who did all that is incapable of helping you?

Then start believing and asking for specific prayer, like we already talked about – and, as we are talking about today – PRAY FOR RESULTS and then, as our scripture says today – BELIEVE YOU RECEIVE those prayers as answered. Amen!

I want to pray for you right now, that you would take this seriously. So seriously that you will repent for not doing so before…so seriously that you will start to spend at least 30 minutes each day in God’s Word. So seriously that, if necessary, you will get up 30 minutes earlier to start your day with God in His Word.  IF you will do that, THEN you will see results. Amen! Let’s pray…
