Isaiah 65:24 “Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.”
When we pray, why are we not getting the reply ? It might not be Lord’s timing. Lord might have a different thought. There are other reasons why we do not receive and I believe most of the unanswered prayer are because of those other reasons and all of it is from our side.
Lack of Faith : Mark 11:22-24 “ Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. .. does not doubt in his heart but believes … believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” These are the very words of Jesus, have faith in the Lord that He is capable to perform, never doubt the result but to trust that we have received it. Change my heart Lord to have this attitude.
Un-confessed Sins : Isaiah 59: 1-2 “Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear” Lord is awesome to answer, but Lord is not in our side because of our sins. Let Lord convict us, and let us fall at His feet with a broken and contrite heart asking for forgiveness, let there be no sin in us.
Lack of Resolution : Psalm 97:10 “ Let those who love the LORD hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked” Once confessed and received the grace from the Lord, let us take strong decision to live holy. True sign of loving the Almighty is to hate sin. Lord will surely enable us to live holy.
Lord forgive us, help us to live a committed life and pray always in faith and let us live under open heaven and our prayers be answered in Jesus Name.
