It is crucial to know that the most important thing about prayer is not the action but the outcome. It is not the action of praying that is most important but the outcome of praying. So, praying without result is an exercise in futility; it is religiosity without productivity.
It is crucial, therefore, to unravel the factors that enhance the effectiveness of prayer.
1. Praying with gratitude (Psalm 100:4, John 6:11).
If you live in praise and gratitude, you live in God’s Presence; and His Presence guarantees answers to prayers.
2. Praying with passion.
Praying passionately, or fervently, not just praying for the sake of praying, but prayer that has fire content like Elijah’s prayer (James 5:16-17). Those who pray religiously are many but those who pray passionately are few.
3. Praying with Scriptural revelation
(Deuteronomy 29:29). Praying from the standpoint of insight; not just speaking to God sentimentally but speaking to God revelationally. God cannot deny Himself; He cannot deny His Word. That is why praying with revelation is impactful.
4. Praying in faith.
Praying with audacity, not just praying with the hope that it may happen. Elijah was a reference point in faith and his prayer did not return to him unanswered (James 5:16-17).
5. Praying with prophecies and visions.
This is where we are releasing back to God the Word He gave to us (Daniel 9:3-19).
6. Praying in the Spirit.
Praying in the language of the Holy Ghost makes prayer produce very drastic effect (Romans 8:26).
As you engage these factors at the place of prayer, I see answers coming to you, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: If you live in praise and gratitude, you live in God’s Presence, and His Presence guarantees answers to prayers.
1. Whenever you pray, engage the above-mentioned factors that enhance the effectiveness of prayer.
2. Have a prayer schedule and follow it tenaciously.
3. Make demands on the grace to pray fervently.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for Your mercy and faithfulness. I receive the grace to pray fervently, so I can see drastic manifestations, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
