The Power of Prayer – Part 4

Posted on March 28, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer or withdraw His unfailing love from me. – Psalm 66:20 NLT

Did you know that there are specific prayers that God always answers?

Welcome to this new week of Freedom Fighters. I can’t thank you enough that you have partnered with us again on this new week. 

As I have been digging deeper into prayer, I have observed so much that I want to share with you.

Dr. Gary Millar, in his book on prayer, six prayers that God will ALWAYS ANSWER YES:

1. Glorify yourself through me.

The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14).

2. Forgive me.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).

3. Reveal more of yourself to me.

I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, “Know the Lord,” for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord(Jeremiah 31:33–34).

4. Give me wisdom.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him (James 1:5).

5. Strengthen me to obey you.

As you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure(Philippians 2:12–13).

6. Spread your gospel to the lost.

This gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come (Matthew 24:14).

How do we know God will answer these six prayers? Because he says, he will in the first place, and then, even more, because these prayers sum up what God has promised to do through the gospel. This is what God has said He most surely will do.

I want to encourage you to look at these six principles and begin praying boldly for God to reveal Himself to you as you pray. I am simplistic, so I am planning to pray one of these each day – that is six days. Will you join me?

I love forward to hearing from you (bwelte@americaskeswick.org).
