27 Biblical Currencies (Types and Models) of Prayers - 7

 

all about prayers



 

The current of deesis

People often ignore prayer (deesis) because they do not get immediate answers. Prayer works. However, it works with principles. Prayer is like a car. If you know how to detect the car's problems, you will know how to repair it.

You can travel with the car if you know how to drive it. Most often, how we expect God to answer our prayers differs from his method. God is all-knowing. He is everywhere, and He is the most powerful of all forces.

However, He works with laws. Like a five-year-old child desperately crying to his parents to give him the car keys. The child may know how to ignite the car with the keys. However, the child does not know how to handle (drive) the vehicle.

The child can die if the parents allow the child to handle the car. God knows our strengths and weaknesses. He knows how and when to answer our prayers. God is full of resources. He does not lack resources.

Like humans, we may have whatever we need. However, we lack some things. Money can do many things. It can help us purchase our needs and wants. With money, we can travel around the globe.

We can use money to build ultra-modern roads, factories, churches, and businesses. We can help those in need with cash and solve many social, emotional, health, economic, and financial needs.

However, money has limitations. If money is the ultimate, why do some rich people commit suicide? Why are some rich people desperately in need of prayers? As stated, money is good. It can solve many problems.

However, a time will come when the money cannot solve specific problems. Friends and family can support us emotionally, psychologically, financially, socially, physically, and spiritually. However, prayer does the impossible.

Prayer can do what money, family, and friends cannot do. There are certain diseases money, friends, and families cannot cure. It takes prayer. Science, technology, and research are doing great.

However, there are some things science, technology, and research cannot answer. Like a man whipping the wind, such a man wastes his strength. We cannot empty an ocean with a bucket of water.

It takes power to empty an ocean. Prayer carries invisible powers. Prayer solves problems human beings cannot solve. This is one reason I want to share the currency of prayer with you. The fact that prayer works does not mean anyone can receive answers to his prayers. As stated, prayer works with principles. If you align yourself with the Kingdom principles, you will receive an answer from God. As stated in the Holy Scriptures,

 

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

James 5:16 KJV

Apostle James writes that the fervent prayer of a holy vessel avails much. It takes righteousness and power to pray successfully. James knew we needed prayers. He commanded us to pray for one another.

When we pray for one another, we receive healing. Prayer can bring emotional, spiritual, psychological, social, financial, and physical healing. The more we pray for ourselves, the more the Holy Spirit sets us free from the invisible prisons. In James, chapter five, verses fourteen to fifteen, Apostle James expanded the power of prayer.

 

Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the Church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

James 5:14-15 KJV

Some diseases are spiritual. You cannot solve spiritual diseases with medicine. I believe in medicine. However, demons and witches can project diseases. We cannot heal spiritual diseases with herbs and human knowledge.

Many people are suffering mentally, physically, and emotionally because evil spirits are tormenting them. Some people have visited numerous hospitals, yet the diseases keep rising. Can I present to you that prayer can bring healing?

God (the Holy Spirit) can heal incurable diseases. However, it takes a vessel full of faith. Freely download and read my book, How to Unlock the Gates of Faith, for a more profound revelation on faith.

As stated in the Holy Scriptures (see James 5:14-15), we can pray for the sick and anoint them to receive deliverance. I have seen people living with a strange sickness. However, prayer delivered them. Do not underestimate prayers because they do wonders. Like Elijah, he could stop the rain for three and half years through prayers.

 

Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

James 5:17-18 KJV

Elias (Elijah) was a man like us. He prayed fervently that it should not rain for three years and six months. The same man prayed, and the heaven gate poured out rain. This revelation should tell you about the power of prayer.

If prayer could hold the rain for three years and six months, what can’t prayer do? While praying, some people might think you are wasting time, energy, and resources. Keep praying because you are not wasting time, energy, and resources.

Apply wisdom to your prayer life. You may become weary while praying. However, don’t give up on prayer. God knows what He is doing. Some people may laugh at you. Some will mock you and say all manner of evil against you because of your prayer life. However, do not give up on prayer. While praying, God and his angels work behind the scenes. Why do you think the Apostles prayed while engaging in the ministry?

 

…we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.

Acts 6:4 KJV

While some disciples engaged in the ministry, Apostle Peter, John, Paul, and some dedicated disciples of Christ Jesus gave themselves unto prayer. These Apostles knew the power of prayer. They knew the ministry would not stand without prayer.

Kingdom ministry without prayer is deadly. Like a driver with a weak engine, the car can break down while in the middle of the road. You need a strong engine (prayer) to travel far distances. Prayer sustains us in the ministry. The more we pray, the stronger our spiritual capacity.

 

Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

1 Corinthians 7:5 KJV

Apostle Paul declared the power of prayer in his letters to the Corinthians. He wrote that we must engage in fasting and prayers because Satan can tempt us. Couples who fail to fast and pray open the gate for the enemy to trouble the family.

If you are going to be a strong Christian, let prayer and fasting be part of your schedule. When you fast and pray, the Holy Spirit will flash out the little foxes destroying the garden (the family, Church, business, and relationship). As stated, prayer works with principles. People pray and receive nothing from God. Below are the main reasons people do not receive an answer from God.

 

Four major reasons why prayer fails

understanding prayers

How to make your prayers work


1. Willful and consistent sin

If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

Psalms 66:18 KJV

One major reason people cannot receive an answer from God is the seed of wickedness. David stated that evil can hinder our prayers. Some people are bitter in their hearts. They don’t want to forgive others, yet they pray for mercy.

Christ Jesus stated that if we don’t forgive others their trespasses, the Heavenly Father will also not forgive us (see Mathew 6:14-15). Forgive offenders. God knows how to deal with people who intentionally hurt us.

God will not hear our prayers when we hide sin in our hearts. For instance, malice, pride, anger, unforgiveness, bitterness, and jealousy are sins of the heart. These are some invisible sins that hinder prayers. It doesn’t matter what fasting and prayers we engage in; if we hold iniquity in our hearts, God will not hear our prayers.

 

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 KJV

It is time to repent from sin. When you disobey the Word of God (the Holy Bible), you have sinned (see 1 John 3:4). As humans, we are prone to make mistakes (meditate on Romans 8:26). However, some people intentionally work wickedly.

They fornicate, steal, insult, destroy, and oppose others, not knowing they are fighting God Almighty (meditate on Acts 9:1-5, Matthew 25:31-45). These people are consistent with their wickedness.

They don’t mind destroying their neighbours with lies, gossip, slander, and weapons. Such people cannot receive an answer from God in prayers. The Holy Scriptures state that iniquity separates us from God (see Isaiah 59:1-2).

Sin can hide the face of the Holy Spirit from us. Sin can close the ears of God from hearing us. Repent from any conscious wickedness. When you repent from your wickedness, God will hear your prayers. However, if you stay in your sin, your prayers will not work.

 

He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.

Proverbs 28:9 KJV

Some people’s prayer smells bad in the presence of the Lord because of wickedness. You can hide your sin from people. However, you cannot hide your sins from the Holy Spirit. If the Holy Spirit reminds you of any sin, repent quickly.

Your prayers will work when you turn away from your sin and live in the Kingdom’s righteousness (meditate on John 9:31, Proverbs 15:8, 1 Peter 3:12, Psalms 34:15-17, Matthew 6:33, Psalms 145:19, Proverbs 15:29, and download my books on prayers for more profound revelations).

 

2. Doubt

…without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Hebrews 11:6 KJV

Another reason we cannot receive an answer from God is doubt. The Holy Scriptures state that it takes faith to connect with God. Without faith, we cannot receive from God. When we doubt the Word of God (the Holy Bible) and live in fear, our prayers will not work (meditate on 2 Timothy 1:7).

However, if we have faith in our prayers and trust the Word of God with all our hearts, our prayers will produce results. Check the miracles of Christ Jesus. You will see that faith activated the deliverance (signs and wonders).

Anytime you come to God in prayers, believe that you have received an answer from Him. When you believe in your heart that God has heard your prayers, the spiritual forces will submit to the request (meditate on Matthew 8:5-13, Mark 9:14-24, Mark 11:20-24, John 11:1-40).

 

3. The prayer is outside the will of God (imperfect will of God)

Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

James 4:3 KJV

Another vital reason people cannot receive an answer from God is because they pray outside the will of God. This prayer is a subset of the Kakos prayer. Kindly check out my previous articles for more profound revelations about the Kakos prayer.

God will not answer a prayer that will destroy us. He can answer our prayers out of mercy. God can answer our prayers in His permissive will. However, prayers that do not align with the Word (the Holy Bible) will go unanswered. Please read my previous articles related to this article for a more profound revelation about prayers. Check your prayers.

  • Are you praying according to the will of God?
  • Are your prayers biblical?
  • Are you praying out of jealousy, bitterness, and wickedness?
  • Will your prayers bring the glory of God?
  • Is your prayer centered on the lustful desires of the flesh and soul?

If your prayers have no foundation in the Word (the Holy Bible), they will not touch the heart of God (meditate on Psalms 34:7 and John 15:7).

 

4. No Endurance

He (God) hath made every thing beautiful in his time…

Ecclesiastes 3:11 KJV (Emphasis added)

God works with seasons in human realms. I encourage you to download and read my books (wisdom series), especially the book titled The Perfect Wisdom, for a more profound revelation about timing and seasons.

The books are free on my blog. Some people cannot receive an answer from God because they cannot wait for the appointed season. The Holy Scriptures state that God has made everything beautiful in His time.

Note the words, His (God’s) time, not your time. How and when you expect an answer from God can differ from God’s timing. In this case, you need patience. Some people cannot wait for God to receive from Him, so they give up.

When you give up on God, you allow the devil and his cohorts to manipulate you. This is one reason you must be patient. Like a four-year-old girl desperately praying for a husband. That girl has not developed the mental, emotional, financial, physical, social, spiritual, and psychological strength to handle a husband.

That girl does not have the womb to carry a child! Some people are like the four-year-old girl. They cannot handle their request. Their prayer request needs time. God knows it’s not their time to get a husband (business, money, assets, job, marriage, promotion, and the heart desire).

Be patient in your prayers. The fact that God has not answered your prayers does not mean He has forgotten you. Don’t give up on God. He is preparing you for the appointed season. The Holy Spirit makes things beautiful in His time.

Christ Jesus will visit you at the appointed time. Don’t allow the devil and its minions to take charge with the virtue of impatience. Know the currencies of prayers, and you will prevail. This is one reason I want to share the five biblical currencies (types and levels) of prayers.

You can download and read my book, The Seven Principles to Answered Prayers, for more profound revelations. The book is free on my blog. Connect with me as I share the five currencies of prayer. Kindly share the link to this article so others can receive the knowledge that brings deliverance. Below are the five currencies of prayers.

 

Five Fire Types and Levels of Prayer

praying to get results

1. Pantote prayers

And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:

And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.

And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;

Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.

Luke 18:1-5 KJV

With this prayer, we persist with a particular request. Some people may think we lack faith when we repeat our prayer requests. It is not a lack of faith. It is a prayer of persistence. Like the widow, the judge responded to her request because of persistence.

There are times when God expects us to persist. In these prayers, God wants to test our faith. The Holy Spirit wants to build a solid relationship with us in this prayer. God wants us to deploy pantote prayer because He wants us to build a long-lasting relationship with the Trinity (the Heavenly Father, Christ Jesus, and the Holy Spirit).

Another reason we pray this prayer is because it falls under the permissive will of God. Generally, God wants to try your heart. He wants to know whether you love Him, the Church, and His creation.

This is one reason you have to persist in that prayer request. Praying for a specific thing for a long time does not mean we lack faith. It is a model of prayer. Our Savior and Lord Christ Jesus prayed this prayer when He walked on earth as a man (see Matthew 26:42).

Don’t allow people to limit your faith. If you persist with a specific prayer request for days, weeks, months, and years, the Holy Spirit will build Himself in you. God will answer you when you continue out of a pure heart. However, be sure that the specific persistent prayer request does not challenge the Word of God (the Holy Bible). I recommend you read my previous articles related to this article for more profound revelations about this prayer.

 

2. Noieo prayer

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Ephesians 3:20 KJV

With this prayer, we do not open our mouths or show any physical sign of praying to God. It’s a prayer of the mind and heart. Noieo prayer works deep in our souls. As stated in the Holy Scriptures, God can do exceedingly abundantly above all we can think.

Thoughts can be prayer requests. In Heaven, God and His angels see our thoughts. Some people can perceive your thoughts. However, they are not accurate. The Holy Spirit sees our thoughts in full High Definition (HD).

Like a video or an image with a higher HD, you can view it on a large screen. That is how the holy spiritual forces observe our thoughts. They can see, feel, sense, and touch our thoughts. You can pray in an open or public arena, yet no one will notice it.

I call it noieo prayers. While in the room, car, office, lecture hall, and social gathering, deploy this prayer. Pray without opening your mouth or showing any physical signs. Pray with your mind.

Pray from your heart. God sees the request of our hearts and minds. However, the effectiveness of this prayer works with inward anointing. For more profound revelation about the inward anointing, freely download and read my series of books on the anointing. You can also download and read my other series to boost your understanding of the anointing and the Holy Spirit. The books are free on my blog!

 

3. Rabah prayers

…Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.

1 Chronicle 4:9-10 KJV

This is one of the best prayers to pray when you discover that people desperately don’t need you. When you constantly face demonic attacks in your dreams, evil spirits are alerting you of your spiritual value in God’s Kingdom.

Pray the rabah prayers. When people hate you for no reason, pray the rabah prayer. When family and friends see nothing good in you, pray that God should enlarge your territory. With rabah prayers, you ask God to deliver you from evil.

You pray that God expand your glory (blessings) and send helpers your way. Pray that God should send forth more laborers in the vineyard. Pray that the Holy Spirit raise people who will stand in the gap for the Church.

When you pray that God should rain his blessings (favor) on you and multiply your territory (Church, school, business, and followers), the enemies will submit. When laborers in the vineyard increase, the enemies will surrender.

You will find favor with people when God enlarges your coast. I may continue in the next article. Kindly share the link to this article so others can receive the knowledge that brings deliverance.
