From Biblical revelation and history, we have a Powerful God who answers the prayers of His people from generation to generation. Psalm 99: 6 and 8 “Moses and Aaron among His priests, and Samuel among them that CALL UPON HIS NAME; THEY CALLED UPON THE LORD, AND HE ANSWERED THEM. THOU ANSWEREDST THEM, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them.” Jehovah God is the God that answers by fire.

1 Kings 18:24 “And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the Name of the LORD: AND THE GOD THAT ANSWERETH BY FIRE, let HIM BE GOD. Jehovah is the One that answers prayers and unto Him shall all flesh come. He responds to those who call upon Him in truth. Psalm 86:5 “For Thou, LORD, art good, and ready to forgive; and PLENTEOUS IN MERCY UNTO ALL them that CALL UPON THEE.” The LORD gives us the open invitation to CALL UPON HIM in our times of crisis. His Omnipotent Love and Mercy will always deal with our ugly situations when we call upon Him in prayers. The Word of God says in James 4:2 “YE HAVE NOT, BECAUSE YE ASK NOT” Over and over again, God has shown that He is not an Artful Doger or a Politician who is very evasive and inaccessible.

The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY is available 24/7 to answer the prayers of those who will take time TO CALL UPON HIM with specific requests. The List is endless in the Old and New Testaments of those that God answered. (Romans 10:12) “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the SAME LORD OVER ALL IS RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM.” Look at this short List. ENOCH (Genesis 4:26) “And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began MEN TO CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD.” NOAH (Genesis 8:20-22) “And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD AND OFFERED BURNT offerings on the altar.

And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in His Heart, I WILL NOT AGAIN CURSE THE GROUND ANY MORE for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” ABRAHAM AND SARAH (Genesis 21:1) “And the LORD visited Sarah as He had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as He had spoken.” ISAAC (Genesis 25:21) “And Isaac INTREATED THE LORD for his wife, because she was barren: AND THE LORD WAS INTREATED OF HIM, and Rebekah his wife conceived.” JACOB (Genesis 32:10) “I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which Thou hast shewed unto Thy servant; for with my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.” RACHAEL (Genesis 30:22) “And God remembered Rachel, AND GOD HEARKENED TO HER, and opened her womb.”

And many more Hannah, Jonah, Job, Jabesh, etc. GOD ANSWERS ANIMALS AND BIRDS. God also answers the prayers of lowly creatures of beast and birds. (Psalm 147:9) “He giveth to the beast his food, and to the YOUNG RAVENS WHICH CRY.” (Psalm 145:15) “The eyes of all wait upon Thee; and Thou givest THEM THEIR MEAT IN DUE SEASON.” GOD ANSWERED DEMONS. In Mark 5:12 “And ALL THE DEVILS besought Him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.” The demons prayed to JESUS that they should be cast into the swines and JESUS obliged.

Listen, if God answered ravens, beast, even demons, GOD WILL SURELY ANSWER YOUR PRAYERS. JESUS answered the prayers of lepers, harlots, the outcasts, the blind, the impotent and the rich. We are assured that whatsoever we shall ask in the Name of JESUS will be given to us. John 16:23 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in My Name, He will give it you.” To ask in the Name of JESUS means you must have a relationship with JESUS. Make JESUS the LORD of your life and then ask in His Mighty Holy Name. Come to God through the Blood of JESUS and ask for your desires. John 14:14” If ye shall ask any thing in My Name, I will do it.” Phil.4:6 “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
