to Pray & Get Results
That Be Nice for a Change?
Pastor John Hamel
“And in that day ye shall ask Me nothing. Verily, verily, I say
unto you, Whatever ye shall ask the Father in My name, He will give it
you.” (John 16:23)
“How can I pray and get results?” That’s a question I’ve
heard over and over again as a Pastor, Bible Teacher and Evangelist.
I, myself, struggled with the answer to this question before it
was finally answered for me one day as I was reading my Bible. While
doing so, I came across the above verse of Scripture. It changed the
way I prayed and resulted in the type of miracle answers for which I had
been longing. I was seeking power in prayer and I finally found
Man was created in the image and likeness of God. So it
is only natural for him to be a power-seeker. (Genesis 1:26)
what praying is, actually, seeking power with God.
People who pray are asking God to use His Power on their behalf.
God is a good God and He desires to have all human beings
seek His help in prayer. He desires to answer the prayers of all
However, whenever we seek God’s help, it is only provided on
God’s terms. That’s only reasonable. He made us, He owns us and
He’s redeemed us through the Blood of Jesus.
Therefore, He has the right and the privilege of laying down
the “ground rules” so to speak. Anyone who genuinely desires answer
to prayer must follow the rules of Miracle Prayer.
Rule Number One
Become A Member Of God’s Forever Family.
This can only be
done by asking Jesus to be your Lord and
Simply say aloud, “Jesus, You’re my choice” and you’ll become
a family member. (John 1:12; 14:6; Romans 10:13)
Rule Number Two
Study The Bible.
You simply cannot pray effective Miracle
Prayer unless you learn what God has agreed
to do for you.
Everything He promises is found only in the
You must find what God promised to do about your need in the
Bible. (John 15:7)
Rule Number Three
Never Pray To Jesus, The Virgin Mary, Deceased Saints Or Anyone
Jesus said, “Ask the Father in My Name.” (John
16:23) Mary said, “Whatever Jesus says, DO IT.” (John
If Jesus said that we are not to pray to Him and Mary said we
are not to pray to her, then we would do well to heed them both. God,
our Father, will only answer prayer when we follow His rules.
Whatever you need, pray, “FATHER, according to Your Word, I ask You to (fill
in the blank), IN JESUS’ NAME.”
That will surely get His
attention. Praying this way is not only an act of faith, but it’s an act of obedience that
God will honor. (Isaiah 1:19)
Rule Number Four
Continue To Thank Him For The Answer.
faith and it’s the only way to please Him.
He heard you and is helping you now, even as He promised in
the Bible. (1John 5:14,15)
The less you complain about your problem and the more you thank Him for the
solution, in Jesus’ Name, the greater the
Remember, it all starts by saying these words,
“Jesus, You’re my choice.” God hears His children.
So there you have
Ask Christ to be your Savior. Study your Bible so you can
know what God has and has not agreed to do for you. Pray only to the
Father in Jesus’ Name. Keep thanking Him for answering you.
That’s the kind of prayer that brings results. Wouldn’t that be nice
for a change?
