The second step to receiving answers to your prayers is to ask God for what you want and believe that you receive it.
  1. You must ask God for what you want and believe that you receive those things you ask for when you pray.
    1. God knows what you need before you ask (Matthew 6:8, 32).
    2. You must continue to come before Him and ask Him for what you want.
    3. You are the one who is responsible for asking.
    4. God is a loving Father who wants to answer your requests (Luke 11:11-13; Matthew 7:7-11).

  2. Remaining connected to God is essential to getting answers to your prayers.
    1. Create an atmosphere for answered prayer by abiding in God and allowing His Word to abide in you (John 15:7).

  3. You must know the will of God to receive answers to your prayers.
    1. The will of God is the Word of God.
    2. When you know the Word of God, you will have confidence that what you pray is in line with His will (1 John 5:14, 15).

  4. Believe that you receive when you pray (Mark 11:24).
    1. You will have those things that you believe you receive.
    2. When you ask God for something, be sure you have pure motives and not selfish ones.
      1. Wrong motives, wrong intentions and selfishness will hinder your prayers from being answered (James 4:1-5).
      2. Pray for others and your prayers will be answered.
    3. When you ask God for something that is in line with His Word, and you receive it, your joy will be full (John 16:23, 24).
      1. Believe God for the finished work.
      2. Everything you need is available in the spiritual realm.
        1. Use your faith to pull it out of the unseen (spiritual) realm and into the natural.
        2. The spiritual realm is more real than the natural realm.
