For so many times I had proven that if you really pray hard, you will get what your heart wants. In relation to this, you just not have to do praying so many times but you must also work for what you are praying for.I believe that God will give what you ask for if He sees to it that you, yourself is really working for it. For a long time I am asking Him to help me all the way on my qualification exam as a teacher.I have faith in Him and I know He will not fail me. I also do my best to review so many subjects and to keep it in my mind.Before I study, I always pray on Him to enlighten my mind and to give me strong memory. As of now, I am enjoying the fruits of my labor. God answered my prayers.I feel so blessed and so lucky.It is one thing that happened to me that I cannot forget and all my life I will continue to pray to Him and praise Him.

Yes prayer really works. I remember when I was at the lowest point of my life, I prayed to Him to guide me and lead me to the right path. And luckily, HE have heard me and let me pass through the hardships in my life. Even my silent prayers were answered.. Godspeed...

I believe that even if before we pray to him what is within us, He already knows it. God is so good. Thanks for the response.

I agree with you ms annie, I do believe that God is alive. He anwers our prayers when we call on Him. I prove it when i was actively praying everyday.(right now I seldom pray but have to do it again)... everytime am on a tight spot and am asking for a sign what to do next He will give me the sign. I know that He loves me and never abandoned me as His child. keep praying it really works :)

Yes, He will never abandons people because He loves us. No matter how big our sins, if we ask forgiveness with sincerity, He still forgives us. Thanks for the response.

Definitely yes! Our prayers may not be answered the way we want it to be but God knows what is good for us and when it is good for us. He can't give us everything what we wanted but He knows what we need and provide it for us. Answers to our prayers may not come in a box with a good wrapper but once we open it up, it is more than what we expected. Keep your faith! God is with us always!

Sometimes it is better to ask Him not what we our heart wants but what we deserves. Thanks for the response.

Hello....yes prayer most definitely works. I believe not only pray hard but pray with a sincere heart with the right motive and God will answer that prayer though at times the answer may come fast and sometimes we just have to wait for His timing.........God Bless..........

I agree with you. We must have perseverance and if God doesn't give to us what we are asking to Him, it is because of a good reason. Thanks for the response.

Psalm 145:16 (New International Version) 16 You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing. He will give us even more than we expect. He will never let us down. We also have to remember that He know better than us what we really need. So if some things don't go our way, if we wait a bit, we will see that He has given us something better than we asked or wanted. If we are patient, He will not disappoint us. That has been my experience.
