Prayer Volunteer criteria
1. Are you thankful?
2. Do you have a personal relationship with God?
3. Do you pray in the name of Jesus?
or “for Christ’s sake” at the end of a prayer. It suggests a desire to glorify God by asking only those things that are pleasing to Him and will
be helpful to His cause. As Samuel Chadwick once said: “To pray in the name of Christ is to pray as one who is at one with Christ, whose
mind is the mind of Christ, whose desires are the desires of Christ, and whose purpose is at one with that of Christ” (The Path of Prayer, p. 52).
4. You must cherish no sinful desire
thought, word, and deed, your prayers will not be effective. As Isaiah says: “Behold, the
Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: but your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear” (Isaiah 59:1,2). Sin separates man from God. Like dirt in an electrical connection, it
stops the flow of power. Nor does He answer prayers of a purely selfish nature. Says James:
“You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions” (James 4:3). A prayer for a new Cadillac or to win
$100,000 on a TV program will not have a very high priority in the courts of heaven.
5. You must be at one with God.
7. You must be patient.
He inclined unto me, and heard my cry” (Psalm 40:1). Again, “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord” (Psalm 27:14).
If all your prayers were answered immediately under the urgency of your pleading, you would probably be sadly disillusioned. Human vision is so limited that it is always wisest to wait for God to answer
as and when His wisdom may deem best.
8. You must have faith.
