How Do I Get My Prayers Answered?


If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. -John 15:7 AMP

Here are some tips for getting your prayers answered: Pray in Jesus’ Name. Remember prayers are answered by and through Christ’s authority and not yours. It’s not your reputation on the line. “When God made his promise to Abraham, he backed it to the hilt, putting his own reputation on the line,” (Hebrews 6:13 MSG).

When you pray in Jesus’ Name and according to His Word, it’s still God’s reputation on the line. Abide in the Father and His Word. When you walk daily with Father God, His Word changes from head knowledge to heart knowledge, which is how it becomes powerful in your life. Pray God’s revealed Word.

When Holy Spirit reveals or enlightens your eyes to promises from the Father, they become more powerful and you’re given the power to tell the devil that your God will answer your prayers just as He promised in His Word. Follow the John 15:7 formula.

Abiding in the Father PLUS Keeping His revealed Word with you PLUS Asking what you need or desire EQUALS God moving on your behalf. The John 15:7 formula is the all-inclusive condition to getting your prayers answered. Try it out in your life and see what happens. Let God blow your mind as He answers your prayers.

Prayer Focus

  • Ask Holy Spirit to open your eyes to God’s promises.
  • Thank God that it’s His reputation on the line and not yours for answered prayers.
