And in praying use not vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do:
for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
The only type of prayer that most people know nowadays is praying for the same situations/problems daily, and they think that the more often they pray it, the sooner God is going to hear them and maybe give them what they need.
If you still pray like that though and notice that you still pray for the same things daily, then stop now, because God doesn't even hear those kinds of prayer and no matter how many people pray for it, you won't see results!
The word says that God only hears prayers that are based on His word. That means that you can't just run before God with a mouth full of words, as soon as you have a problem. Instead you need to first open your bible and find the promise that fits your situation.
I can assure you, that for every situation you could possibly get yourself into, God promised you in His word to deliver you from it, but it is important to find the verse, because only then can you come boldly to the throne of God and say a prayer that He will hear and answer right away.
So if your facing financial trouble for example and found the scripture that says that God will meet all your needs according to His riches in glory (Philippians 4,19), then you can come before Him and receive your promise in prayer.
“Father, You promised me in Your word, that You will meet all my needs according to Your riches. I bring Your word before You and receive RIGHT HERE and RIGHT NOW (date) all your riches. I NOW have the abundance and am not a poor man anymore, but a rich son of God. In Jesus name, Amen!”
That is a prayer that is spoke in faith and based on Gods word. If you pray like that, you can be certain that God heard you the first time and once you prayed it, record the date and time so that you always know that that day, you received your abundance!
So if God heard your prayer the first time, don't be rude and pray it again. Once is enough and it shows that you spoke it in faith. Now if you still want to do more things concerning your prayer though, then just thank God for His faithfulness, for hearing your prayer, for preparing everything you prayed for, etc., because if you operate in that prayer-thanksgiving mode, you will receive your riches in no time.
Stop using many empty words and stop repeating your prayers daily. Faith is what brings Gods promises into your life and therefore always pray in faith and according to Gods word.
Those are the kinds of prayers that will revolutionize your prayer-life and that way you will finally see results!
You need to learn to receive in prayer instead of speaking many empty words that God is not even hearing.
Receiving in prayer means to take Gods word, find the promise that fits your situation and pray: “I receive ... now, for You promised it in Your word and it belongs to me. In Jesus name, Amen!”
That prayer shows faith and faith is what will cause God to manifest in your life!(Matthew 6,5-8)
