Several years back, when I recommitted my life to Christ, a friend who was with me as I began this Walk of Life, and was frustrated about her circumstances, was also a bit frustrated me. During our conversation, she emphatically expressed; “Not everybody hears God like you do, Keisha!” Being the beginning of my spiritual journey, I didn’t quite understand why she felt that way. But, now years later, after learning and understanding what can stand between God’s children hearing His Fatherly guidance, I can confidently say that God answers prayers of ALL of His people! I won’t say He always answers “Yes” because sometimes He answers communicating a “No”, “Not now”, or “I have something better for you.”
Truth is, not everyone is called to be a Prophet, but we all have basic levels of spiritual fittings that enables us to have ears to hear what the Spirit of God is saying, because we all have a spiritual aspect of our being. Some levels of these fittings are very high, crossing over into Godly gifts of the Holy Spirit that equips us for our callings. But, generally speaking, everyone, if having a willing spirit nurture their relationship with God, can discern answers to their prayers to Him. That being said, your prayers are being answered, but when not attuned into God’s voice, it can be difficult to realize He’s given you an answer.
Aside from actually hearing/seeing His answers, there are also times where answers to prayers can be delayed. I wrote an article about 7 Tips to Busting Prayer Blockers & Boost Your Blessings that gives you several reasons why you may not be seeing answers to your prayers.
Now knowing the Good News that God does answer prayers, even for those not called to be Prophets, keep in mind He answers them in various ways. At times, He may answer them directly, or sometimes through others, such as Prophets, providing you’re connected to ones God’s chosen to speak to you through. Using the article above, you can start today to unblock your prayers. And, if you find you have trouble recognizing when it’s really The Lord speaking, here’s a Free “Start or Improve Hearing the Voice of God Checklist”, a companion to my (Pod)Casting Potential episode, “4 Ways to Start or Improve Hearing the Voice of God”, that’ll help you to get started tuning into the frequency of the Voice of God.
