Mk. 11: 22-26
Whatever things you ask when you pray, believe [ Mk. 11:24 ]

Every believer looks forward to receiving the manifestaton of those things he desires in prayer. What the wicked fears will come upon him, but the desire of the righteous will be granted (Pr. 10:24 NASB). Jesus gave us His word: Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours (v. 24 ESV). If you are in a situaton where your desires are not granted, kindly examine these areas:

* Check what your desire was founded on. The foundaton of everything you do is very important. If the foundatons are destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Ps. 11:3) Is your desire based on scriptures, the promises of God or a revelaton? God is alert and actve, watching over His word to perform it (Jer. 1:12). Do not be anxious about anything. Establish your requests upon the scripture and make them known to God. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplicaton, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God (Phil. 4:6)

* Check what you have been saying. Words can ensnare you or trap you. You are snared with the words of your lips, you are caught by the speech of your mouth (Pr. 6:2 AMP). What a person says can get him into big trouble both physically and spiritually. The mouth of the young Amalekite testfed against him, that he killed the Lord’s anointed, Saul (2 Sam. 1:16). The judgment of the wicked servant was based on what he said to the nobleman, as his excuse for not investng his master’s money (Lk. 19:22). Let your words be in agreement with your prayers, and God’s promise.

Prayer:Lord, set a guard over my mouth and keep watch over the door of my lips. Help me to be careful with my uterances so that I will not use my own mouth to nullify my prayer. Fill me with wisdom for my tasks today

Confession:The eyes of the Lord are on me and His ears are open to my prayers. I can have what I say; therefore I say what I mean and I mean what I say. I never worry about anything, but in every situaton I make my pettons known to God in prayers and requests, with thanksgiving.
