Derek Prince – Bible teacher
If I were to ask you here, whom do you consider the most influential kind of person on earth? I suppose you might think of various different answers.
Probably your mind would turn to political leaders such as George Bush or Mikhail Gorbachev or others, men of science, or maybe even military commanders.
But I don’t believe that they are the really influential people. I look in a completely different direction.
As I understand it, the most influential people on earth today are those who know how to get their prayers answered, because they can release the omnipotence of God into situations which goes far beyond anything that the wisest or most powerful human being can do.
So I want to speak to you in this message on certain requirements for getting our prayers answered.
But first of all, I just want to read you three statements from the New Testament about what prayer can do.
The first is found in Matthew 21:22. Jesus Himself is speaking, and He says, “And all things, whatever you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
Notice: all things that you ask in prayer, you will receive. There’s no restrictions. There’s just one condition: ‘believing’; the condition there is faith.
And then we turn to John’s Gospel 15 and verse 7. And again we have the words of Jesus to His disciples.
