A few years ago, I told some Pastors that God answers all prayers. Some of them were shocked and I could see it on their faces. In the Redeemed Christian Church of God, when the Pastor in charge of a parish cannot solve a problem, he escalates it to the pastor charge of the Area. If the problem continues to do defy all solutions, it will continually be passed up the Chain of command until it reaches the General Overseer. Now who does the General Overseer take the problem to? There is no one can run to but Jesus Himself, I stay with Him in the place of prayer until the problem is solved. If you would pray persistently, soon your testimony would also be “God answers all prayers”
John 16:24 says:
Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
Some people unknowingly stop praying just before their breakthrough. Why do they stop Perhaps they think they are disturbing God. Is it not God Himself who said we should ask that our joy may be full Is it not Jesus Himself who told the story of the widow and the wicked judge in today’s Bible reading? Why then should you stop praying when your prayer has not yet been answered? In my early years as a Minister, there were prayers made for many years before l saw answers. I prayed for fifteen years so that would be able to heal the sick by mere waving of the hand. I did not stop praying after a few years, I persisted and received my answer. What is that long-awaited desire of yours for which you have stopped praying? lt is time to start praying again, that your joy may be full. You may wonder why God can’t just answer you are praying once or twice. Well, He is sovereign. He will choose when to answer you. Also, some requests do not yield results with ‘two-minute’ prayers. You have to press in the spirit to be able to shift such things in the physical some other times, God may be using that situation to build your Faith (1 Peter 1:7). Whatever the case may be don’t get weary when you don’t receive an answer instantly; keep praying
God promised in Matthew 7:7-8 that when you when will receive, when you seek you shall find knock, doors will be opened unto you.
Persist in prayer until He answers. He is a prayer answering God. Open Heaven 2021
Hymn 12: In Christ Alone

Today Open Heavens Daily Devotional (10-1-2021) is titled Persistent Prayers. Yesterday, we were admonished to be spiritually sensitive, as life is more than ordinary, and there are opportunities we can’t afford to lose. Additionally, with God, we can do all things. Today’s Open Heavens Daily Devotional is about praying without ceasing. Written by Pastor Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, we are being encouraged to continue praying to God without ceasing. It is very necessary to keep remembering this as children of God. We must continue to talk to HIM, and have the knowledge and confidence that He is going to give us much more than we desire. In today Open Heavens Daily Devotional, we should be encouraged not to get tired of praying. Even if you are not yet seeing the things you have been asking God for, don’t get tired. Just keep asking and continue to talk to HIM. He will visit you soon and your life will never remain the same again. God loves us. He is our Loving Father Who want nothing but the best for us. Don’t be discouraged by anything. Have faith and keep talking to HIM. You are HIS. Thanks for reading today Open Heavens Daily Devotional – Open Heavens Sunday 10 January 2021
