    Want An Answer To Your Prayer?

    Want An Answer To Your Prayer?

    Many of us pray for a wide variety of things. World peace...the end to hunger and starvation...the end to slavery in all its forms and permutations...restoration of marriages...deliverance to captives, etc. Most of these are prayers in general. In essence, we pray that God would use whom He would use to accomplish these things but usually we do not consider ourselves as those that would be used, primarily because of how large those concerns are and that we are insufficient to fulfill those needs ourselves.

    In all my years as a believer and having prayed thousands of hours before the Lord, I have found that the most effective prayers I've prayed were those where I sought to be used of Him as an answer to my prayers. If I saw a need in someone that was within my reach, I would not pray that God would use someone else but prayed that He use me to see that need fulfilled.

    Each time I prayed in this way, I was allowed to personally witness His power and glory in that other person's life.

    Holy Spirit told me one day that I should only pray for those larger issues as He directed me. I was no longer allowed to pray at my whim in a general manner. He did this by showing me several verses including the one that said the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Every person God had me pray for has been touched by His hand as a result of His direction.

    For instance, a woman was brought to me who had suffered as a heroin addict for the last 5 years with the three most recent years as a believer. She had gone to one famous ministry after another, had them lay hands on her with each proclaiming her freedom. Only she was still addicted and at the end of her rope in hope for deliverance. He told me that He knew I would not give up on her or just proclaim her free without seeing it through to completion. When I went into prayer, I asked Father what was preventing her from being free and He showed me where the hindrance was. Together, we removed the hindrances and later the Holy Spirit descended upon me with an intercessory burden to pray for her. At that moment, God delivered her from her addiction right in the midst of her withdrawal pains.

    Would you like to see answers to your prayers? Then I encourage you to offer yourselves as living sacrifices to God and be willing to be the one He chooses to answer through. Your life will never be the same!

    Soon after I received the Lord in 1976, I started receiving prophetic visions and warnings about the future of the church and the United States. I share my visions on my Hidden Manna websites and offer free of charge my two ebooks entitled “Hidden Manna” and “Hidden Manna 2”.

    1. Wow, short and to the point. The testimony you used is one I'll never forget, thank you Lord for for the privilege to have been part of her life then and before going to her eternal rest.

    2. Amen, It was our privilege to have known her while she was here. The promise of seeing her again in glory is one we both are looking forward to.

    3. This is so true Jerry and you are right. It is the way it should be
