No believer should have any of his prayers unanswered. And yet, barriers exist that ensures that some prayers are not answered by God. Our redemptive right, family right, kingdom right, guarantee answers to prayer. But this is contingent on our continuous walk with God, seeking only His will and letting the mind be in us which was also in Christ.

Praying “according to His will” (1 John 5:14), helped by the Holy Spirit who knows the mind of God (Romans 8:26,27; 1 Corinthians 2:16) and desiring only what God desires, we can always expect answers to our prayers and we shall not be disappointed.

Are there hindrances and barriers? Why do we sometimes experience failure in having our prayers answered? Any failure we experience is always our fault (Deuteronomy 3:23-26; Joshua 7:11,12; 2 Samuel 12:15-23; Psalm 66:18; Ezekiel 14:1-6; Matthew 6:5-8; Luke 18:10-14). God is a faithful God. Remove the barriers and God will answer your prayer. And make no room for unclaimed provision of blessings and benefits.

Parents delight in providing the necessities of life for their children. They readily provide food, daily needs and even good gifts for all their children without partiality or unhealthy preference. They are even willing to give toys to their infants but they become concerned if their adult sons always and only ask for toys.

As we grow up, our needs and desires change to correspond to our growth and maturity. We discover that we need more than bread and fish and our parents notice our mental, social, physical, emotional, spiritual growth by the things we ask. Our prayers often reveal whether we are baby Christians, growing Christians or mature Christians.

There are great, uncommon promises and provision, which we have not claimed. Many precious promises of grace for godliness and success in ministry and fruitfulness are ours. Let our prayers grow with our growth in knowledge and growth in Christ.
