Believe that you have received answers to your prayers before you see any physical manifestation.

Heb. 11:1-6 [READ]

Faith is a spiritual force that commits Gods integrity to make good His promise. This means that if God has said anything to you and you have faith, you have committed His integrity that HE will make happen what HE said and HE cannot lie.

Faith is evidential and substantial; you have not seen it but you know that it is real. Every good report is a product of faith. Faith is your access to all your inheritance in Christ. It guarantees your access to every inheritance you have in Christ.

Faith is the bridge that connects you to your destination. God has no problem confirming His word; He is only looking for who will trust Him. Every child of God has faith according to Rom. 12:3b Rom. 12:3 -For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. To pray a prayer of faith, you must first of all locate appropriate scriptures which are in line with your request.

This is because God will not respond to any prayer which are not in line with His word. So, when you want to pray, you must locate a scripture or scriptures which are relevant to what you want to ask God for. 1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: So, firstly, you have to locate the right scripture to pray with; if you just pray anyhow, God will not hear you.

Hosea 14:2a Take with you words, and turn to the Lord: Thus, you have to get Gods word and return it back to the Lord because Gods word is Himself. God will hear your prayers when you pray according to His word; not according to your grammar.

That is why many people that pray with calculated English do not have result because their prayers are not in line with the word of God. It is not enough to locate a scripture. When you locate a scripture, meditate on it until faith rises in you.

Meditation can be compared to incubation in agriculture. Meditate on the scripture until faith is built. 1Tim. 4:15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. Sit with the word of God until the rhema becomes very real to you.

A good illustration on meditation is digestion. When you eat food, it has to digest before it nourishes your body. That is how getting the word of God is likened to eating while meditation is likened to digestion. Therefore, the word of God has to settle in your heart before you can produce it.

After meditation, the next step is to open your mouth in prayer because faith is not finished until it is spoken for God to confirm it. 2Cor. 4:13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; Speak and declare what you have seen in Gods word which you have also meditated on and God will not hesitate to confirm it.

After speaking and declaring what you want to see, believe that it is done. Mark 11:24 24 For this reason I am telling you, whatever things you ask for in prayer [in accordance with Gods will], believe [with confident trust] that you have received them, and they will be given to you.

{Amp} If you want the prayer of faith to work, when you pray for anything, you dont have to see it before you know that God has answered; you have to know that He has answered before you can see it. If you dont have faith that God has answered, you cannot see it but the moment you have faith, then you will have what have prayed for. Believe that you have received answers to your prayers before you see any physical manifestation. From today, as you begin to practice the prayer of faith, may all that you request of the Lord in accordance to His word come to pass in your life speedily in the name of Jesus Amen!!! God bless you
