WHY YOUR PRAYERS ARE NOT EFFECTIVE IN SOUL WINNING AND HOW TO MAKE THEM EFFECTIVE | Lesson 12 | School of Evangelism

Don’t worry, I am not going to say you do not have faith because you do have faith.

Remember that you only need faith as small as a grain of mustard seed to move a whole mountain (Matthew 17:20). So your faith is enough really.

When we pray sometimes we do not get results simply because we stop praying too early. We don’t continue praying. I mean praying every hour or every 30 minutes or every 15 minutes for days and weeks on end UNTIL we get the result.

When we pray, and don’t get the answer quickly, we assume God does not want to give us what we ask and we quickly sort ourselves out and move on to something else.

We forget that importunity in prayer is a necessary principle to getting answers. In fact, not giving up praying, regardless of how faithless we feel, is an act of faith in itself. Get it?

Jesus taught us the Importunity Principle in Luke 11:5-8:

5 And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves;

6 For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him?

7 And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee.

8 I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.

If you continue in prayer for that soul or those souls, you will definitely get the answer. Jesus Christ has promised us that in verses 9 and 10.

And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

So let us ask and never give up.
