Where there Is a Man to Pray, there Is a God to Answer


030216_Where_There_Is_A_Man_To_PrayHow much confidence do you have in your prayers? When you pray, do you really expect an answer? You should. God really hears and answers prayer.

Just last week my wife and I received a very specific answer to our prayers.  She noticed a white spot developing on her iris.  Then she started to feel pressure in that eye, and then pain.

Concerned about what may be wrong, she came to me two days later and asked that I pray with her. I did. And then I looked to see if the white spot was still there.  It was. We decided to believe God had heard our prayers and gave thanks anyway.

She went through the rest of day feeling the pain and the pressure. And went to bed that night with the white spot still there, admittedly still concerned, thinking she may have to see a doctor the next day.  But when she woke up, the first thing she noticed was no pain.  She ran to the mirror to see if the white spot was there or not. It wasn’t. It was gone completely. God had answered our prayers, supernaturally!

Listen to what Jesus said:

““Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”  (‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7:7-11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

In these verses, Jesus pleads with us to pray. In fact, one version translates His plea this way:  “Ask, I ask you to ask.  Seek, I beseech you to seek.  Knock, I urge you to knock.”  He is actually begging you to ask because He wants so much to help you.  Elsewhere, He says men ought always to pray and not faint.

And do not let the devil deceive you into thinking that God will hear others, but not you. God loves all His children equally.  And qualifies all of us the same way–by the blood of Jesus!

Child of God, all you need to get your prayers answered are the love of God and blood of Jesus. And that you have. So  pray, believe, and then go on praying. Why? Because where there is a man to pray, there is a God to answer!

  1. I am indeed happy seating under papa preaching and the lovely program tittle Upper Room. truly if there is a Man to Pray there is a God to answer. daddy indeed since I started watching your station. my prayer line, life and thinking for life changed sir! Daddy God blessed you.

  2. Beautiful reminder Daddy! Excited about staying on the altar of prayer , believing ” if we ask HIM we shall receive , if we seek we shall find ” because there is GOD to answer when there is son to pray. AMEN

  3. This is so true bishop, all we have to do is ask! I was reminded of what the Lord did for me when you gave your testimony the other day in church. Several months ago, my husband, and i went to see our niece who had a baby. When we got to the house, i just prophesied over the baby as i felt led to do. I did not touch the baby. We stayed for about 30 minutes, and my husband closed us in prayer. We said our goodbyes, but as we were leaving the house, i began to feel this excruciating pain in my left wrist. It became progressively painful that i could not do anything with my hand.My husband had to buckle the seat belt for me. I began to ask:”i did not do anything. What happened all of a sudden”? Then it dawned on me that i was being attacked because i prayed for the baby. I claimed the word of God for healing, i repeated Isaiah 53:5 over, and over, and other healing scriptures. By the next morning, i noticed that the pain was completely gone, and it’s been 3 moths now. Like you said all we have to do is ask, and keep worshiping, and believing even if we have not seen the manifestation of what we are asking our father for. Thank you so much bishop!

  4. By the grace of God my confidence is build upon this teaching not to be weary in praying because there is a God to answer. Thanks a million Bishop

  5. God really hears and answers prayer. This testimony of yours concerning our first lady of Bethel ministries International teaches us to believe when we pray and what I have learned from you over the years about prayer and believing God keep pushing me higher and higher in God’s presence. Am grateful your Grace Bishop

  6. Thank you for sharing Christ-centered truths always. This is my testimony in confirmation of this message you have just shared: About 4 months ago, my wife had a very severe stomach pain. She was rolling on the bed and crying when she woke up that early morning. I did not know what to do. What came to my mind was to call for an ambulance and take her to the hospital quickly. I was really disturbed. However, The Holy Spirit reminded me to pray first since it was during our family devotion time. I obeyed and prayed: “Father, please, I pray for normality in the entire body of my wife Rebecca, your beloved daughter. Father, please heal her for your glory. I pray in Jesus name with thanks-giving. Amen.” After few minutes, my wife woke up and told me God is truly alive. Since that time until now she has not complained to me any stomach problem. Yes, God can really answer prayers. Thanks for sharing. Remain Blessed.

  7. This is our problem; to believe and know He has answered or answers. Amen and amen. What a wonderful revelation. Thank you Bishop.

  8. Lord, help me to pray, let there nothing too small or big in my eye for which I would ever think prayer is not necessary for. Thank you Bishop, I want to be that man and let God be God.
