Conditions to Answered Prayer

If you want an audience with the King of Kings, then you must position yourself to enter His presence and have your petition heard.

- Church bulletin version or Bible companion card -

1. Right relationship with God. Clean heart.

Psalm 24:3-4 “Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord ? And who may stand in His holy place?He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood, And has not sworn deceitfully.”

Psalms 66:18 “If I regard wickedness in my heart, The Lord will not hear…”

2. Right relationship with others. Forgiveness and humility.

Matthew 5:23-24 “If therefore you are presenting your offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering there before the altar, and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and present your offering.”

1 Peter 5:5 “You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

1 Peter 3:7 “You husbands likewise, live with [your wives] in an understanding way, as with a weaker vessel, since she is a woman; and grant her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.”

3. Childlike faith. Simple and from your heart.

Hebrews 11:6 “And without faith it is impossible to please [Him], for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and [that] He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.”

John 5:15 “And if we know that He hears us [in] whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.”

4. Gratitude. Always giving thanks.

Psalms 100:4 “Enter His gates with thanksgiving, [And] His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name.”

1 Thessalonians 5:18 “In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

5. Obedience. Willingness to do whatever the Lord shows you.

Deuteronomy 28:2 “And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you will obey the LORD your God.”

1 Peter 3:12 “For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and His ears attend to their prayer…”

6. Perseverance. Don’t give up. Keep your request before God until he answers.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 “pray without ceasing;”

Ephesians 6:18 “With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,”
