When you go in prayer to God in the name of Jesus Christ, without fretting or manipulating anything to make it happen, God will answer your prayer. Do not think this is necessarily slower; in fact, it could be faster. This builds your faith. When you go to God and refuse to grab, you develop a relationship with and a dependence on God. And you stop being the forceful person, the controlling person, and you start seeing what a great God He is. He gives you the desires of your heart. You can go to bed at night with no guilt for overeating, overspending, overtalking, overdrinking, or grabbing. You have no worries and it is beautiful!
How do you get answered prayers? You follow Him. Jesus said in John 14:
“I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” John 14:12-14
“If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.” John 14:23-24
