Many prayers of the children of God are products of their ignorance and wrong thinking and as such they are unanswerable. I do not mean God does not hear them; but He cannot answer their prayers because they are not scriptural. For the next couple of days, I will be sharing with you some basic steps that will ensure your breakthrough in prayers.
We shall be studying Psalm 65 which to me is one of the best chapters in the bible on prayers- penned by a man that knew what he was talking about- David. He certainly knew how to pray. Not only that, he also got results from his prayers. Many can pray, but with no result!
Please note this secret very well: the lack of breakthrough in the prayer life of many is not because they cannot pray long and hard enough. No, some wonderful saints of God can certainly pray volumes and gallons but receive mere trickles for answers. Prayer failure can be attributed to two major reasons:
(b) Wrong thinking
Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” When you are ignorant about a thing, the devil cheats you in that area. Likewise, wrong thinking has given birth to many unanswerable prayers. Wrong thinking is the child of an unrenewed mind. The greatest enemy that born-again people have is not the devil but their unrenewed mind. A lot of wrong information has been stored in their unrenewed minds which gives birth to wrong opinions of the devil, God and themselves.
These twin obstacles must be completely dealt with before you can begin to enjoy breakthrough in your prayer life. The solution to the two lies in the word of God.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive a divine cleansing and renewal of my mind. Teach my hands to war in the place of prayer in Jesus’ name. Amen!
