The way to get real-life results in prayer is to seek God with an attitude that says, “No matter how long it takes, or whatever I have to do, I will not be denied.” This is not arrogance; it is Godly hunger. It is not about pushing God, but about pushing yourself into God. It is not praying for the sake of praying. It is praying to see the hand of God move. It is desperate hungry praying. It is the type of prayer that gets answers. Faith takes two things, first the written scriptures hope and then the spoken personal word of God faith Romans 10:17. The scriptures show us the general will of God and communicate the conditions that must be met to receive faith and see His hand move. His
spoken personal word reveals His will to us personally, and let’s know when we have met those conditions. The goal is to hear God confirm His promise and let Him place His witness into our heart. The promise then comes alive and becomes a reality to us. This reality is ‘the substance of things previously hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen’ Hebrews 11:1.

This is not arrogance; it’s Godly hunger. This seeking, turns the general promises of God into personal realities. This is the period when we work the word, and the word works in us. Seeking God merges the word of God and the will of God into our lives. We become one with the word. This is what Jesus was referring to when He said, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you shall ask whatever you will, and it will be done for you.” (John 15:7) This faith process turns desires into Bible hopes, and Bible hopes into real life realities. It is not easy, but it is never impossible. Anybody with enough hunger can  make it happen.

The process usually takes time, and there are no shortcuts. God does not respond to part-time seekers. He is only found by those who seek Him with their whole heart. The Bible says, ‘You must be diligent so as to realize the full assurance of hope, so that you will receive the promise’ (Hebrews 6:11). Growing faith is hard work, for the Bible goes on to say, ‘Don’t be sluggish but be imitators of those who through faith and patience have inherited the
promises’ (Hebrews 6:12).

This is desperate hungry praying. This is the type of prayer that gets answers. Pray until you receive an  answer from God, for when you do, you will have the victory. You must persevere until you get to a place where you are ‘fully assured that what God has promised, He is able also to perform’ (Romans 4:21). When you hear Him, you have the answer, for Paul says, “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the spoken word of God’ (Romans 10:17). The ‘word’ translated here is the Greek word rhema, and it speaks of a personal face-to-face type of communication. He is not talking about a mere reading of the word. This is deeper. This is God making the words on the page come alive in your heart. The word on the page must become the word in your heart before you can have enough faith to receive from God.

Then, and only then, you can speak faith’s victory to your life and situation. Speaking words filled with faith is the only kind of speaking that makes a difference. This kind of speaking will move mountains. Seek Him till you hear from Him. Jesus told us that in prayer we should always pray and never give up. Don’t give up! Seek Him till you hear His voice. Let Him deal with  your heart, for as you do, He will speak your answer to you. When you hear the answer, you will have the answer.

We’re so quick to give up in prayer. Our emotions and our circumstances lead us to stop praying. However, we need to PUSH (Pray Until Something Happens).  My goal is to encourage you to continually endure in prayer, no matter how difficult your situation may seem, we should pray and never give up. Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you
with my righteous right hand.”

If we’re honest with ourselves, unanswered prayers are very discouraging. If we’re not careful, unanswered prayers can lead to weariness and despair. If we’re not careful, we will come to a place where we say, “It just doesn’t work.” If you have been discouraged by not seeing the results of your prayers, I want you to keep fighting! One day, you will see the glorious fruits of your prayers. I know it’s hard. Sometimes it takes two days, sometimes 2 months, and sometimes 2 years. However, we have to have an attitude that says, “I will not let go until You bless me.”
