7 Prayers God Will Never Answers

  1. When we pray without faith, mechanically (Hebrews 11:6).
  2. When prayer is used instead of actions (Exodus 14:15).
  3. When we prioritise our own will (Luke 22:42).
  4. When we pray but not with faith (2 Corinthians 13:5).
  5. When our prayer is insincere (Matthew 15:8).
  6. When we pray to fulfill our own selfish pleasures (James 4:3).
  7. When we pray but we don’t persevere (Luke 18:1-8).

Never make this prayer, “My God, if it’s not your will, remove it from my heart!” It’s our heart, so God cannot do that, or else free will would not exist.

We should use our intelligence to pray, “My God, I ask You to reveal the truth to me about this situation, these feelings or this person, and give me the direction & strength to overcome!”

Prayer is powerful – The one thing the Disciples of Jesus asked Him to teach them was to pray.

1, 2, 3… Who Did Jesus Pray For

I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours. John 17:9 NKJV

One – Here we see that Jesus was interceding through prayer for those who belongs to God exclusively; and not for those living for the world.

Two – Jesus knew the heart and minds of human beings on earth, he already knew that the vast majority wouldn’t want to live for God. So He made his prayer specific for only those who would believe and live for Him, i.e His disciples (current & future).

Three – Intercede, through daily prayer, for Christians worldwide, but especially for those closest to you, i.e. your disciples & Christian brethen.

Don’t waste too much time praying for those who are living for the world, they’re not interested in God.

1, 2, 3… UNITY! For God’s Sake. 

Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are. John 17:11 NKJV

One – In this verse, Jesus was days away from being crucified, resurrecting & returning to Heaven; He prayed that in His absence, God would keep His disciples united.

Two – Jesus knew that in His physical absence, His disciple (current & future) would experience situation that would try to break them up. So He asked God to remind them to always stick together, solely because of HIS namesake, nothing else.

Three – Even if your not fond of your fellow Christian’s character, behaviour, style, culture, interests, ways of doing things; and/or if there’s pressure to give up your faith in people & God, because we are Christians, let’s be UNITED! God’s sake!

God’s Holy Spirit = God’s Character

For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. I Corinthians 2:11 NKJV

This verse is very profound. It leaves in the mind of those who have common sense, no room for doubt or confusion.

Who know us better than our own spirit? Only God, but no one else. So surely you can understand now why a Pastors & anyone who is born of God continue to feel sadden when a person is in the church for many years, yet they have never received the Holy Spirit.

Without the Holy Spirit, you can read the entire bible, experience miracles, improve in your character and even be used by God to save others, but, you’ll never know who God is personally.

Now imagine how frustrating this is for God Himself.

He sent our Lord Jesus, His Son, to die for us so that the Holy Spirit could be given to all those who believe in Him, as a GIFT, as our INHERITANCE. A gift that we are automatically entitled to the moment we accept Him as our Lord & Saviour.

Yet, so many neglect or reject it, consciously & unconsciously. And the consequence… they are in church for most of their life or claim to believe in the God of the bible, but don’t even know, PERSONALLY, the One they claim to be their Father, Lord & Saviour.

Believer!!!

Servant of God!!!

Person living by Faith!!!

Do Not Accept This To Be Your Case. I’m demanding from you, that you use this week to take possession of YOUR GIFT, YOUR INHERITANCE, the Holy Spirit.

1, 2, 3… Give Your Best To Educate & Encourage

While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. John 17:12 NKJV

One – In this verse, Jesus was explaining to God that He done his best job to educate and keep His disciples under the authority of God.

Two – As a true Christian, we have a duty to educate (via theory & demonstration) & encourage (to the best of our ability) God’s disciples here on earth. True Christians strive daily to prevent disciples & souls from getting distracted, attracted & lost in this evil world.

Three – Daily consecrate yourself via mediating on your Bible; Daily use your faith based upon the word of God & inspiration from the Holy Spirit; Daily strive to be a true representative of God here on earth; and daily check up on those Christian brethren & souls that God has inspired you to look after.

1, 2, 3… A Christian’s Purpose On Earth

I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work You have given Me to do. John 17:4 MEV

One – In this bible verse, the Lord Jesus is praying to God about what He has done while He was on earth.

Two – While on earth, a Christian has two jobs: to glorify God the Father through their character, talent & works; and to daily seek out the souls (through evangelism) that God wants to save through them.

Three – Seek to receive the character of God (the Holy Spirit); figure out how God can use you to glorify Him here on earth (your talent); master your talent by investing time and effort into it; and set daily, weekly and monthly targets of how many souls you will evangelize and look after (discipleship).

Simplicity is exactly that, simple…

1, 2, 3… Eternal Life

This is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent. John 17:3 MEV

One – This bible verse is Jesus explaining to those who are interested, what is ETERNAL LIFE.

Two – To gain eternal life, a person simply has to first acknowledge the God of the Bible, and His Son, the Lord Jesus;  and then make a conscious and in depth effort to get to know Them on a personal level.

Three – Decide today to start obeying through ACTIONS & ATTITUDES ALL that the God of the Bible commands you to do, through His Son and through His deputy authorities (in the bible and today i.e. Pastors & Deacons); regardless of how you feel, your cultures, your traditions, your upbringing, your habits and your own way of thinking.

If you know better, do better…
