Do You Really Expect God to Answer Your Prayers?

Sharon JaynesA Sudden Glory, Identity in Christ, Knowing God, Prayer 328 Comments

Have you ever prayed about something, but didn’t really expect God to answer…I mean really expect it? I’ll admit I have. Sometimes I’ve prayed because I knew I should, but doubted God would truly answer.

That same thing happened to a bunch of Peter’s friends. (Acts 12)

In the early years of the church, King Herod had many Christians murdered and many more put in prison. James, the brother of John, was put to death with the sword, and Peter was thrown into prison.

The night before Peter was to be taken to trial, a group gathered at Mary’s (John’s mother’s) house to pray for him. While they were praying, there was a knock at the door. A servant girl named Rhoda went to the door but didn’t open it.

“Who is there?” she asked.

“It is Peter,” the freed apostle answered.

She knew it was Peter—she recognized his voice! God had answered their prayers! Rhoda was so excited, she didn’t even let Peter in, but ran back to tell the group that he was standing at the door.

“You’re out of your mind,” they told her. “Maybe it is his angel.”

Peter kept knocking. Finally, they opened the door and were astonished to see Peter alive and well, standing right in front of them.

Why were they surprised? Why didn’t they believe Rhoda? While they were praying for Peter’s release, they didn’t really expect God to do it. Do you see it? We can pray about a situation and miss the glory moment standing at the door because of unbelief and low expectations that God would actually answer.

Sometimes, I fear we have lowered our spiritual expectations to match the experiences of people we know, rather than what we read in the Bible. We look around and see what has occurred in the lives of other believers, and that’s where we set the bar. As a result, we lead mediocre lives, forfeiting the abundant life Jesus came to give.

Rather than lower our expectations, let’s do what David did.  In the Psalms he wrote: “In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.” (Psalm 5:3 NIV).

David expected God to answer! I want to be a person! I think you do to.

Dear Lord, I bring my prayers before You today. Forgive me for praying and not expecting You to answer. Here is my prayer: (Fill in this spot with you own prayer.) I lay my requests before you and wait in eager expectation. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

If you don’t keep a prayer journal, consider getting one. This could be a simple notebook, or a cute bound  book with blank pages. The dollar store is a great place for cute little journals. Write down your prayer requests and then make a note as to how God answered and the date. His answer maybe…Yes. No. Or Wait.

If you’re believing God for a particular answer to prayer, leave a comment and say, I’m expectantly waiting for God to answer my prayer about (or for) ___________________. Then, let’s pray for the woman below your entry.

If you’ve never clicked on comment, I invite you to do so today and join the conversation. Great things are happening!

My daughter took left home when she turned 18 and l we didn’t want her to but through her time away from us she KNEW we were praying for her. It took a year for her figure out a lot of adult stuff. She had to walk that path because she had to find out for herself what we had been trying to prepare her for being an independent adult. She didnt go the way we wished she had, but in her way she learned that God was still with her even though she walked away from Him too.

I am getting so far behind in my bills that until God steps in, I am sunk. Please pray for me and my family.

But it’s also scary as I get closer to my final day at my current role.

  54. My prayer is that my son Matthew will give his heart to Jesus, that he will be released from the chains that bind him.

  55. Lord, I am trying really hard to believe that healing is coming for my mother. We do not know what has happened to her and the doctors can’t seem to find anything. I know The Great Physician knows what ails her. My sister and I are about on empty taking care of both of my parents at the same time. There seems to not be enough hours in the day Lord. Come Lord Jesus, bring calm and peace to my mother so she can regain some of her independence! Thank you Lord for going before me and help me to not get ahead of the day. You are good You hear my voice and I wait expectantly as did your servant David.
    Amen

Lord I also ask your mercy and provision for us to find our new home in a good neighborhood below $350,000 where we can pay upfront a greater down payment to have a lower than 30 year mortgage as we retire. It would be very helpful to see the sale of our current properties also come through to help us with this goal to determine where we will live next. In Jesus name with thanksgiving I pray Amen.

  67. I’m seeking prayer right now for a single mom at our church. She has a 10 year old boy. The boys father is in prison. His parents are trying to get custody of him and are continually taking her to court. She needs a lawyer for a court summons she was served yesterday which will cost her money she does not have.

  76. I am praying expectantly for accusations against my husband and three other people at my husband’s office to be removed.

  77. I’m expectantly waiting for God to answer my prayer about what I should be focusing on as it pertains to my personal and professional goals.

    I am a full-time sole caregiver to my Mama Joan a brainstem stroke survivor and through my caregiving experience, I have learned that there is a significant gap in research and resources specifically tailored to the needs of Black daughter caregivers. This underrepresentation within the healthcare and caregiving systems inspired me to create Hey Caregiver! a lifestyle brand that prioritizes self-care for family caregivers and The Binti Circle, a support network dedicated to addressing these disparities and offering culturally tailored support for Black women caring for their parents.

    I’m also expectantly waiting for God to answer my prayer for scholarships and donations toward my Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) studies at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. My student loans were forgiven praise God and school debt is not an option, especially as an unpaid family caregiver. However, as a Black daughter caregiver, I understand firsthand the importance of culturally responsive support in this role. By pursuing a DrPH, I aim to deepen my understanding of the intersection of race, gender, and caregiving, and to develop effective interventions for addressing disparities in health and well-being within this community.

    While the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) acknowledges caregiving as a public health priority and that the health of caregivers is at risk, systemic health and social injustices frequently result in worse health outcomes for Black caregivers, particularly Black daughter caregivers.

    I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Eswatini when I learned that Mama Joan was on life support. That was August 5, 2018. God has indeed turned my pain into purpose as this is not the life that I would have chosen.

    These are a few of the scriptures that I hold on to: Jeremiah 29:11-13, Proverbs 3:5-6, Psalm 118:5-9 and Psalm 32:8-10.

    In Jesus’ name. Amen.

  84. I am embarrassed to admit that have been praying and hoping for years that God would miraculously release me from my addiction and dysfunctional relationship with food. However, I have lost hope and have never really expected Him to act. Maybe that is why He hasn’t delivered me – I don’t have enough faith to believe that He will?

    1. Do not lose hope Kim, God is always there for those who call on Him. You are aware of your food addiction, you know what you need to do, so use God’s strength to help you make the necessary changes, I believe that you do have enough faith in God, and I believe that when you make that true commitment – to Him; to yourself, then you will dig deep, and come out fighting along side God to overcome and conquer this. I am praying with you Kim – and I know I am not the only one!

We met here in my country while working together in a restaurant. Because his contract ended he had to leave and now is in Spain. He says he will come back for me. I don’t know if that is true but taking each day at a time and put my trust in the Lord. If it’s God’s will that we will be together then what this guy says is true and will come back.

To think that You care so much about each and every prayer, is mind boggling. Yet we do believe this and You do answer our prayers. Thank You Jesus. I pray You will allow each of these Your Children here and around Your world to know Your Presence and be confident in Your Word Please never allow our hearts to wonder away from You or Your Word. “I believe in God The Father Almighty,Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,
    suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there He will come to Judge the living and the dead.

    the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,
    the Resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. We pray in The Name of and through Jesus’ precious Life and Blood Amen
