Prepare to receive
Have you prepared you heart to receive all that I have in store for you; Have you read My Word to find out what that might be?
“Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who have pleasure in them.” Psalms 111:2
So many do not. They pray a prayer in passing–hoping an answer will come but, expecting that it won’t, they barely pause to say what’s on their heart.
Prepare your heart to pray. For if you are praying in unbelief, how is it that you expect to receive? And if you don’t expect an answer, why pray?
Prepare your heart
Find the answer in My Word–it contains the purpose of My Will–then apply My Word to your situation. If you know it is My Will for you, then you may pray with confidence and expect to receive.
Prepare your heart in My Word to believe
Now, prepare to receive. For I AM prepared to give–your answer will come. If you believe, you will receive!
“If you set your heart aright, you will stretch out your hands toward him. If iniquity is in your hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in your tents. Surely then you will lift up your face without blemish; you will be secure, and will not fear.
You will forget your misery; you will remember it as waters that have passed away. And your life will be brighter than the noonday; its darkness will be like the morning.
And you will have confidence, because there is hope; you will be protected and take your rest in safety. You will lie down, and none will make you afraid; many will entreat your favor. But the eyes of the wicked will fail; all way of escape will be lost to them, and their hope is to breathe their last.” Job 11:13-20

“O Lord, thou wilt hear the desire of the meek; thou wilt strengthen their heart, thou wilt incline thy ear to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, so that man who is of the earth may strike terror no more.” Psalms 10:17-18
