HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
Have you ever wondered, “Why doesn’t God answer my prayers?” Do you know how to pray in a way that will get real results?
I know that what I am about to write is not “politically correct.” But let me put it this way: Why should you expect the God of the Bible to answer the prayers of people who pray to some other god? Who prays in a wrong manner? Who regularly disobey the true God? Who asks for the wrong things?
The answer is simple—you should not! Make no mistake. You have no reason to expect real answers to your prayers unless you pray to the true God in the right way. This may seem outrageous to those who take Christianity for granted—just another of the many religions in the world. But the truth is that literally millions of people in our Western, supposedly Christian, the world have no idea who the true God is, or how they should pray to Him. So many church folks are caught up in their cultures and prosperity. That their homes are often their thrones of worship in the place of the Living God.
Oh, I am quite aware that many people repeat some kind of “mumbo jumbo” or “mantra” to themselves, and end up “feeling better.” And since problems oftentimes work themselves out, many people feel that they received an answer to their prayers when they really did not. This often goes hand in hand with the practices of “mind science” or the “power of positive thinking.”
But that is not the kind of “answer” I am talking about in this message. What I mean is direct, divine intervention by the personal God of the Bible—the Creator of the heavens and the earth and active Ruler of the entire universe! How can you and your loved ones get this kind of answer to your prayers? Although other points could be offered, I want to set forth a number of basic “keys” to answered prayer. I am positive that if you follow these points literally, sincerely and wholeheartedly, you will begin to receive genuine answers to your prayers. And they may be so real and so forceful that it will surprise many who have never experienced this kind of power before.
