~Praying For Impact

Visit me on www.twitter.com/gapmin or on

There is much praying going forth, some of it effectual and some not. Many have stopped praying in discouragement because they are not seeing manifested results or at least not seeing results in the manner and the time in which they would like. Our prayers must be prayed for impact. When I say impact I’m not talking about praying with the ‘gimme attitude”. Although prayer is a petition of asking we cheat ourselves out of the power of power when we limit it to entreating God for stuff and things. When I talk about praying for impact I’m speaking of seeing results IN you. Many times the answer to your prayer is not a changed situation but a changed YOU in the situation.

We often enter praying knowing what we want and never asking God what he wants for us or how he desires a situation to conclude for us. Yes, I know his way of concluding things isn’t always what we would like to happen but he knows the end from the beginning.

1 John 5:14-15 brings us to a greater understanding:
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
If we want our prayers to produce something we have to align them with God’s will. When we don’t know God’s will, we have to ask and when we’ve asked and feel as though God is not answering we have to patiently wait.

Praying for impact is praying for influence and effect. What influences God? Your faith influences God. God knows the thoughts that he has towards us (Jeremiah 29:11) and they are thoughts of peace, not evil, to give us an expected end. ~njs
