ANSWERED PRAYER
Divine Conditions Revealed

Do you want your prayers answered? Do you want to maintain a constantly clear line to God? Would you like to possess the confidence that your prayers are being heard and answered? Well, in the next few minutes any gray area which may still linger in your thoughts will be cleared up

Book-DFPS title

Are You Being Deceived ?

by God's message on clear prayer communications.

RIGHTEOUSNESS AND PRAYER

Make no mistake, answered prayer is contingent upon our current standing with the Almighty. Oh, the flesh (sinful nature) doesn't want to face this truth because in its deceitful disposition it wants to vainly imagine that it can live the way it wishes (retaining sin) and still receive the blessings of God (Jonah 2:8). There should be no mystery to the Church though as for answered and unanswered prayer, for God reveals the keys to answered prayer in His Word. Let us take a look.

Who does God reward?

    "The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me." Psalms 18:20

The Psalmist stated that "The Lord rewarded" him:

  • according to his righteousness
  • according to the cleanness of his hands
  • "If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:" Psalms 66:18

Why would the Lord shut His holy ears to one of His very own, like the Psalmist?

    "And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses." Mark 11:25-26

As seen in the verse above, unforgiven sin is the hindrance to prayers. Without God's forgiveness, one has no access to Him. God has forgiven us and we are to return that same mercy to others. Jesus said that we are to pray.."And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors." Matthew 6:12

Jesus made it clear that we are not to go before God in prayer or any kind of worship until we have made things right with our fellow man/neighbor.

    "Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift." Matthew 5:23-24

There are some who attempt to cover all sins by a false "grace" message, supposing that God somehow automatically looks over the sins of those who have been born again (had one moment of saving faith). This teaching is easy to embrace. It sounds good and caters to the flesh which does not want to endure sound doctrine (2 Tim. 4:3). But, is this what the Scriptures teach as the nature of God? The fact is, that all who have been apprehended by the grace of God are responsible to "deny ungodliness and worldly lusts...live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world." (Titus 2:11-12) No person who has been born again and yet is currently out of fellowship with God through sin, can expect to have any prayer answered.

God's nature is revealed in Scripture, not through man's philosophies which have been sown in our hearts (Col. 2:8-9). Let not your heart be deceived, God is holy and requires the same from all who will remain in fellowship with Him (Lev. 19:2; Matt. 5:48, Heb. 12:14...). We must continue in His light, the clearly revealed will of God, found in the Bible, to continue to be cleansed by His blood (1 John 1:7, 2:3-5...). This is only possible by His grace.

May our hearts never forget that "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God" (Heb. 10:31), and that we are to "be thou in the fear of the Lord all the day long." (Proverbs 23:17)

Psalms 24

Who? Who? Who?

    "(Q) Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

    (A) He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah." Psalms 24:3-6

God's mercy and compassions are a sure thing for us, as we conform to His will, His Word, by the enablement of the Holy Ghost. (Rom. 8:13-14,29; Lam. 3:19-26...)

CONDITIONS FOR ANSWERED PRAYER:

    "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you." John 15:7

There are two conditions for answered prayer that Jesus reveals here:

1) Abiding in Him

Abiding in Christ is remaining in relationship with Him and in obedience to His teachings in your daily life. Have you told Him you love Him lately? Do you talk to Him in prayer daily? Do you know what He taught?

The second condition Christ mentioned for answered prayer is:

2) His words abiding in us

Beloved, God wants His Words in your heart. In John 15:7 above, Jesus said that His Words are to be found in your heart. To what degree are they resident in you, projecting His image upon your heart? What communion does your heart enjoy with the Word/will of God? What effort are you making to store up His eternal Words in your heart from whence all the issues of your life flow? (Prov. 4:23)

    "For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight." 1 John 3:20-22

Note verse 20 which states: "For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things." Friend of the Savior, God is greater than our occasionally condemning hearts which sometimes indict us with that which has been forgiven by God. God is greater than these infringements upon His perfect forgiveness which is provided through that precious blood that flows eternally fresh.

THE CLEAN HEART WHICH GOD HONORS

Under the new covenant, because of the precious blood of Christ, our hearts should be continually sprinkled clean from all guilt through the blood of the everlasting covenant. The only reason they wouldn't be currently cleansed would be due to us not going before God afresh. Here's the divine plan for you:

    "Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus...Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water." Hebrews 10:19,22

Here we see that the blood of Jesus will sprinkle our hearts from the consciousness of sin. Here is more evidence of such:

    "How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge (cleanse) your conscience from dead works (past sins) to serve the living God?" Hebrews 9:14

    "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

True repentance of sin before God releases His forgiveness and cleansing upon the teachable heart.

Here is the confidence that God has ordained us to walk in in approaching Him in prayer:

    "And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him." 1 John 5:14-15

raw away from but always to You in time of need for mercy and grace to be forgiven and cleansed. Thank You for hearing my prayers and answering them because of Jesus. I love You.

    "For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil." 1 Peter 3:12

    "Be careful (anxious) for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God." Philippians 4:6
