Jesus taught his disciples to pray and to always pray in faith. Praying in faith is simply taking God at His word and believing that God hears your prayer and will answer them.
The prayer of faith may sound something like this “Heavenly Father in the name of your son Jesus, your word says that you shall supply all of my needs according to your riches and glory by Christ Jesus. Lord I have need for my phone bill to be paid. And I am asking you now to meet this need in my life. I believe that you are faithful to your word to give me all that I need and to pay this bill. I cast the care of this bill over on you and I believe I receive it now paid in Jesus Name. Amen.”
Once you have prayed the prayer of faith for your particular situation, you do not have to pray and ask God for it again. Any other prayer concerning the issue should be a prayer of thanksgiving. Thanking God for the answer and praising Him for His promises fulfilled. Whenever you are tempted to pray for the situation again because you feel like God did not hear you and it doesn’t seem as if God is going to come through for you, simply begin to praise God and thank Him for having already answered your prayers.
The pressure to give up may come as the enemy begins to bring doubt, fear persecution or other difficulties. But don’t give in to doubt and do not give in to the pressure to let go of your faith. When it seems the darkest continue to stand on the promise of God. Call on the Holy Spirit for strength. Make an external gesture of victory and put a big smile on your face. Open your mouth and thank God for his presence. Open your bible and read your promise over and over again. Put a smile on your face and call a friend and tell them that you have the victory in Christ Jesus and then hang up the phone. Don’t talk about the problem. Hang up the phone and start to talk to the problem.
Tell that mountain of debt to be removed and to be cast into the sea. Tell that sickness that it has no place in your body because your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost. Tell that spirit of fear, strife, anger to leave your presence and your situation right now. Even though you may feel like crying, stand on the word, stand in faith and believe that your prayer are answered not matter what it looks like in the natural. Know that it is impossible for God to lie and he will fulfill every promise He made to you if you just stand in faith.
