Insurance for Answered Prayers

There are several things that you can do to increase your chances of having your prayers answered and getting what you want from God. 
Abide in Jesus
The first thing you have to do is to remain in Jesus and let His words remain in you for then He promises you whatever you wish, if you ask for it, it will be given to you. (John 15:7)

Do Not Ask Amiss
The second thing you have to do is to ensure that you are not asking amiss for then you will surely miss the answer to your prayers. (James 4:3) Therefore increase your chances of having your prayers answered by ensuring you are asking with the right motives in your heart and do not pray with selfish or corrupt or decadent motives.

Set Your Heart On What You Want
The third thing is to set your heart on what you want. Learn from Daniel who waited for 3 weeks for his answer from God. (Daniel 10:12-14) When the angel arrived with his answer, he told him that from the first day that Daniel had set his heart to understand, his words were heard in heaven. 

Therefore set your heart on whatever you wish God to give you regardless of whether it is healing, a husband, a wife, wealth, a child, a career, money or a ministry. Set your heart on it and you will receive it just as Daniel set his heart on understanding and he received it.

Wait Expectantly
The fourth thing you should do to increase the chances of your prayers being answered is to wait expectantly. Wait certain that your prayer has been received in Heaven and your answer is on its way to you. Wait without letting the fiery darts of doubts scorch your confidence in God’s ability to answer your prayers. 

Do not let skepticism shake that conviction. Do not be double-minded, one minute certain you will receive it and the next not sure if prayers are heard let alone answered as this will markedly reduce your chances of getting it for a double-minded doubting Thomas or Thomasina should not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord. (James 1:6-8) 

Therefore insure your prayers to ensure they are answered by waiting without doubting whether you have to wait for 3 seconds, 3 minutes, 3 days, 3 months, 3 years or 3 decades.
