“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
The basic challenge of the believer is his ignorance Hos. 4:6. What the believer does not know is what he cannot enjoy. The scriptures make us to understand that prayer is an asset of inestimable value in the kingdom; it has the capacity to deliver whatever the believer will dare to engage it towards Mat. 21:22; Jn. 16:23-24. But the lack of understanding of how to know when prayer is answered has robbed many believers of the fullness of the blessings of their prayer investments Psa. 82:5. The case of the believers praying in Mary’s house, who failed to agree that their prayer for the release of Peter from the prison has been answered, is a vivid example of this fact Acts 12:5-12.
Covenant understanding to help us know when our prayer is answered.
Prayer is not a monologue but a dialogue Jer. 33:3; Mat. 7:7-8. In essence, we speak to God and He respond back on what we said to Him. And this continues until we are satisfied with the outcome of the issue of discussion. This basic understanding is vital to know when God answer our prayer.
Abraham’s intercession for Sodom and Gomorrah clearly illustrates this. He kept pleading his case with reasons why God should not destroy the two cities, and God kept responding to every presentation until Abraham stopped Gen. 18:18-33.
Therefore, it is not enough to travail in prayer; we must be diligent enough to listen to God for His response to what we presented on the prayer altar Deu. 28:1; Acts 27:51. In essence, how do we know when our prayer is answered? It is when we hear God speak in response to what we presented to Him in prayer!
