Praying for a woman who had arthritis, I was not so sure what she was telling me. I couldn’t understand Urdu language and she doesn’t understand English. With the help of the interpreter, she said she was suffering from Arthritis. She was hurting so bad. You can see it all over her face. Then she asked me to pray. In my heart I had only one thing, Jesus is able to heal. She believed that this visiting pastor will pray and God will do something. Then we prayed! And sure enough, God healed her on the spot.
This is when the Spirit of God started to minister to me about Mark 11:24. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. Due to the situation around these precious Pakistani people, you have no choice but to believe God can do something. In my heart I had a strong desire to see the power of God at work in them. The KJV states Mark 11:24… What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them… Desire… The Lord will honor the desires of our hearts if we delight in Him, the psalmist said. Our desire reach at the Throne of God as a prayer request.
This has taught me a great deal of having the right desires. When we develop a good relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ in prayers, our desires are heard by Him as a prayer. I saw children being healed because of the strong desire and hunger they had for God. I saw elderly people touched by God’s power due to their strong desire and hunger for God’s power.
Our payers go hand in hand with our desires. If we are living a godly live, our desires will be interpreted at the throne of mercy as prayers. Let us go deeper into the word of God, honor and revere the Almighty God and he will turn our desires into prayers.
