The 11 Wonders of Prayer (Pt 2) By Rev Sam Oye
“Ask and keep on asking and it will be given to you; seek and keep on seeking and you will find; knock and keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking receives, and he who keeps on seeking finds, and to him who keeps on knocking, it will be opened.”
The Bible says when we keep on asking, we would receive. Persistence and consistence produce results and increase the frequency of answers. In order to constantly see results, we must be willing to pay the price through prayers. Some people pray for two minutes then give up on God. We must learn to patiently wait on God’s manifestation without giving Him any deadline.
Expectation and confession must be in alignment in the place of prayers and that is why we must continuously declare what we want. I persistently prayed to God years ago about wanting a daughter. My testimony is that I now have my daughter but after she was born, I did not keep asking God for a child anymore because I didn’t want more children. If I was consistent with my request, perhaps I would’ve had more children. Consistency is persistent determination. It is the ability to keep talking to God until you get your desired result. The reason people face the issue of unanswered prayers is because they do not hold on for a long time, they give up too soon.
The persistent, fervent prayer of a righteous man/woman is powerful.
Wait in the presence of the Lord until your change comes.
Job 14:14 says, “If a man dies, shall he live again? All the days of my hard service I will wait, till my change comes.”
