                    Unanswered  prayer  is  perhaps  the  most  frustrating
          aspect of  Christian Life.  It is as  familiar as the common cold
          and we have simply learned to live with it because everyone does.
          Time, we  reason, is the  problem.  "If  I just had more  time to
          pray, more  of my prayers would be answered,"  we confess.  Is it
          time we lack or truth?  We  have all somehow gotten the idea that
          God is  more likely  to answer  our  prayers if  we pray  longer.
          Thus, we conclude, the more time spent in prayer, the greater our
          chance  of receiving an answer.   Fortunately, chance has nothing
          to do  with answered prayer.   God is  more interested in  how we
          pray.   Discover how to  spend less time  in prayer  with greater
          results in the pages that follow.



                   Part I Petitioning God (Explained)

                    Petitioning God in  prayer and applying for a bank loan
          are  in some  ways  similar.   The  first time  I  applied for  a
          business loan,  the interview  was over  in moments.   All  of my
          financial records were in order and the bank had plenty of money.
          They were even willing to  lend some of it to  me; but not on  my
          terms.   After learning of the  banks requirements, I resubmitted
          my loan  request, being careful  to conform to the  bank's terms;
          and secured a  loan.  What made  the difference?  Knowing  how to
          ask.   So  it is with  God.   If we  are willing to  petition God
          scripturally, according to his will,  he has promised to hear and
          answer our prayers.

               I John 5:14-15
                    And this is  the confidence that we have  in him, that,
                    if we ask  any thing according to his  will, he heareth
                    us:  And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask,
                    we know that  we have the petitions that  we desired of
                    him.

                            Petitioning God

                    In this text,  we see that the  spiritual confidence is
          assured when  praying according  to God's will.   God's  will for
          petition is His  terms.  Thus the text could read:   "That, if we
          ask anything according to His terms, He hears us."  If we conform
          to His terms, He has promised both to hear and answer our prayers
          and even grant up possession of our own desires.

                    What then, are God's terms?

               Phillipians 4:6
                    Be careful for  nothing; but in  every thing by  prayer
                    and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be
                    made known unto God.

                    A  literal Greek interpretation  of this verse  can be,
          "Do not  become unduly  distressed by  circumstances, but  rather
          bring  about  change by  making  request of  God  through prayer,
          supplication and thanksgiving."

                    The Greek word for "requests" in Phil 4:6 is translated
          "petitions in I John 5:14-15:  "...[and] we know that we have the
          petitions that we desired of him."  Thus God's terms for petition          _________
          are clearly  revealed as the  three steps mentioned in  Phil 4:6:
          prayer, supplication and thanksgiving.


                             Step 1  Prayer

                    We are  first required to  pray when making  request of
          God.  Prayer, in basic form, is asking God.  In this case, it  is
          making a formal request.  Consider the average  prayer:  we spend
          most   of  our  time  complaining  about  the  circumstances  and
          wondering why God has  not done something before now.   If we are
          going  to agree  God's terms,  we must  begin by making  a formal
          request through a deliberate act of prayer.  Simply tell God what
          you need.


                          Step 2  Supplication

                    Supplication  is favoring God through  His word.  It is
          consecrated   earnestness   which    transcends   human   reason,
          spiritually  expressed in the  face of impossible  odds.  "Elijah
          was a  man subject  to like  passions as  we are,  and he  prayed
          earnestly that it  might not rain, and it rained not on the earth
          by  the  space  of  three  years and  six  months."  James  5:17.
          Supplication is the implementation of the eternal promises of God
          through  an act  of  prayer and  steadfastly maintained  until an
          answer is  received.  Thus, it is a  commitment to agree with God
          and His  terms by  applying His  promises to  our requests.   His
          agreement  with us  is to hear  and answer  our prayers.   "If ye
          abide  in me, and  my words  abide in you,  ye shall  ask what ye
          will, and it shall be done unto you." John 15:7.


                          Step 3  Thanksgiving

                    Perhaps  the  most  neglected  aspect  of  petitioning,
          certainly the most  misunderstood, is the giving of  thanks.  The
          Greek term  for thanksgiving  in Phil  4:6 is: grateful  language
          offered in an act of worship.  Therefore, worship is an important
          part  of petitioning.    This form  of worship  is  shown as  ap-
          preciation of God as the one who hears and answers our prayers in                                                                         __
          advance of any answer received.   It is not thanking God for  the          _______
          answer not yet  received; that would be presuming  upon the grace
          of  God, but rather  it is  honoring God as  the one  who has the
          power to supernaturally move on our behalf.

                    Often  a   feeling  of  uneasiness   occurs  when  such
          thanksgiving is offered  in advance of an answer.   Some may even
          confess it feels unnatural.  So it should.  Honoring God  in such
          a manner results in  the release of our personal faith.  "Without
          faith it is  impossible to please God." Hebrews  11:6.  Spiritual
          faith  characterizes  the very  nature  of  God Himself.    Thus,
          exercising  faith is supernatural; hence, we feel uneasy, humanly
          speaking, as we thank God, because faith is at work.

                    Thanksgiving and  praise, in  the mouth  of one  making
          request of God, is a  powerful weapon of worship which frustrates
          the unholy forces that oppose us when we pray.


                            The Will of God

                    Praying the will of God is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

          1. Prayer.
                    We ask God  by confessing our  need and requesting  His
                    power to work on our behalf.
          2. Supplication.
                    We agree with God by claiming His word.
          3. Thanksgiving.

                    We  appreciate God's supernatural ability to act on our
                    behalf by confirming  His power to hear and  answer our
                    prayers.

                    Remember, it is not the amount of time spent in prayer,
          not the  length of one's  petitions, that  causes God to  hear us
          when  we  pray.    It  is  the credibility  of  our  request  and
          conformity to His terms which cause Him to give us the desires of
          our heart.  Applying God's three steps to prayer will allow us to
          spend  less  time   in  prayer  and  more  time   in  praise  and
          thanksgiving for answers received.  This is God's perfect will.                                                            _______



                  Part II Petitioning God (Exercised)

                    The following  was designed  to assist  you in  praying
          through each of  the three steps, either when  making request for
          your  own personal  needs, or  when interceding  for others.   To
          streamline the  petitioning process,  you may  wish to  eliminate
          some of  the verses under  each step and  instead focus  on those
          which seem  to release more personal faith as  you pray.  You may
          even find memorizing those verses to be helpful.

                    In  Part III, you  will find five  different categories
          listed  A through E.   These categories  will allow  you to refer
          specifically to verses that conform to your request.  See part IV
          for more information.

                    As  you begin to practice these three steps, eventually
          it  becomes routine.   This  is  a dangerous  stage of  spiritual
          development  because we  become  tempted with  unfaithfulness and
          inconsistency.  Do  not allow this to happen.  You can help avoid
          this  problem  by  praying  the verses  instead  of  just reading
          through them.  Whenever possible,  pray aloud and pray the verses
          as though they  were your own words  spoken directly to God.   In
          this way, you will be able to identify yourself with God  and His
          word while at  the same time  causing your faith to  be released.
          Remember, "Faith  cometh by  hearing and hearing  by the  word of
          God." Rom 10:17.   Learning to pray is something like learning to
          type.   At first,  everyone has  to hunt  and peck.   Eventually,
          however, we  type from experience  by faith without  ever looking
          because  it has become second nature.   Then we can type anything
          successfully.

    Step 1  Prayer                                    ______________

          Asking God
               Confession  of need and request to God to supernaturally act
               on your behalf according to His word.

               Phillipians 4:6
                    Be careful for  nothing; but in  every thing by  prayer
                    and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be
                    made known unto God. 

               John 16:23-24
                    Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask
                    the Father in my name, he will give [it] you.  Hitherto
                    have ye  asked nothing  in my name:  ask, and  ye shall
                    receive, that your joy may be full. 

Step 2  Supplication                                 ____________________

          Agreement with God
               Lay  claim to  what  scripturally  belongs  to  you  through
               agreement with God's word.

                          I. Personal Promises

               I Peter 3:12
                    For the eyes of the  Lord [are] over the righteous, and
                    his ears [are open] unto their prayers.

               Jeremiah 33:3
                    Call unto  me, and  I will answer  thee, and  show thee
                    great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. 

               Jeremiah 32:27
                    Behold, I [am] the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there
                    any thing too hard for me? 

               Mark 9:23
                    Jesus said unto  him, If thou canst believe, all things
                    [are] possible to him that believeth. 

               Mark 11:22-26
                    And Jesus ... saith unto them,  Have faith in God.  For
                    verily I  say unto you,  That whosoever shall  say unto
                    this mountain, Be thou  removed, and be thou  cast into
                    the sea;  and shall not  doubt in his heart,  but shall
                    believe  that those things which he saith shall come to
                    pass;  he shall have whatsoever  he saith.  Therefore I
                    say unto  you, What  things soever  ye desire,  when ye
                    pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have
                    [them].  And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have
                    ought against  any: that your  Father also which  is in
                    heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 

               I John 3:22
                    And  whatsoever we ask,  we receive of  him, because we
                    keep his  commandments, and  do those  things that  are
                    pleasing in his sight. 

               Matthew 19:26
                    Jesus said, ... with God all things are possible.

               Psalm 84:11
                    No good  thing will  God withhold from  them that  walk
                    uprightly.

               John 15:7-8
                    If ye abide in me, and my  words abide in you, ye shall
                    ask  what ye  will,  and  it shall  be  done unto  you.
                    Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit;
                    so shall ye be my disciples. 

               John 15:16
                    Ye  have not  chosen me,  but  I have  chosen you,  and
                    ordained you, that ye should  go and bring forth fruit,
                    and [that] your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye
                    shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

               Matthew 21:21-22
                    Jesus ... said unto them, Verily I  say unto you, If ye
                    have faith,  and doubt not,  ye shall not only  do this
                    [which is done]  to the fig tree, but  also if ye shall
                    say unto this  mountain, Be thou  removed, and be  thou
                    cast  into the sea; it shall be  done.  And all things,
                    whatsoever  ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall
                    receive. 

                      II. Possessions of Covenant

               Galatians 3:13
                    Christ  hath redeemed  us from  the  curse of  the law,
                    being made a curse for us.

               Galatians 3:29
                    And if ye  [be] Christ's, then  are ye Abraham's  seed,
                    and heirs according to the promise. 

               II Peter 1:3-4
                    According as  his divine power  hath given unto  us all
                    things that [pertain] unto  life and godliness, through
                    the knowledge of  him that hath called us  to glory and
                    virtue:  Whereby are given  unto us exceeding great and
                    precious  promises: that by these ye might be partakers
                    of the  divine  nature, having  escaped the  corruption
                    that is in the world through lust. 

               Romans 8:16-17
                    The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that
                    we  are the  children of  God:   And if  children, then
                    heirs; heirs of  God, and jointheirs with Christ; if so
                    be  that we  suffer with  [him],  that we  may be  also
                    glorified together. 

               Romans 8:32

                    He that  spared not his  own Son, but delivered  him up
                    for us all, how shall he not with  him also freely give
                    us all things? 

               I John 5:14-15
                    And this is  the confidence that we have  in him, that,
                    if we ask  any thing according to his  will, he heareth
                    us:  And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask,
                    we know that  we have the petitions that  we desired of
                    him. 

               Matthew 6:10
                    Thy will be done in earth, as [it is] in heaven. 

                        III. Power and Authority

               Luke 10:19
                    [Jesus said,] Behold, I give unto you power to tread on
                    serpents  and scorpions, and over all  the power of the
                    enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

               Matthew 16:19
                    And I  will give unto thee  the keys of the  kingdom of
                    heaven: and whatsoever  thou shalt bind on  earth shall
                    be bound  in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on
                    earth shall be loosed in heaven. 

               Isaiah 54:17
                    No  weapon that is  formed against thee  shall prosper;
                    and  every tongue  [that] shall  rise  against thee  in
                    judgment  thou shalt condemn. This [is] the heritage of
                    the  servants of the LORD, and their righteousness [is]
                    of me, saith the LORD. 

               John 14:12-14
                    Verily, verily, I  say unto you,  He that believeth  on
                    me, the works that  I do shall he do  also; and greater
                    [works] than  these shall he  do; because I go  unto my
                    Father.  And  whatsoever ye shall ask in  my name, that
                    will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
                    If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it].

               your behalf, through worship.

               Ephesians 1:3
                    Blessed [be]  the  God and  Father  of our  Lord  Jesus
                    Christ,  who   hath  blessed  us   with  all  spiritual
                    blessings in heavenly [places] in Christ.
               Ephesians 2:6
                    And hath  raised [us]  up together,  and made [us]  sit
                    together in heavenly [places] in Christ Jesus.

               Ephesians 2:19-20
                    Now  therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners,
                    but  fellowcitizens   with  the  saints,  and   of  the
                    household of God;  And are built upon the foundation of
                    the apostles  and prophets, Jesus Christ  himself being
                    the chief corner [stone].

               Colossians 1:12-14
                    Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath  made us meet
                    to  be partakers  of the inheritance  of the  saints in
                    light:   Who  hath  delivered  us  from  the  power  of
                    darkness,  and hath translated [us] into the kingdom of
                    his dear Son:   In whom we have  redemption through his
                    blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins.

               Titus 1:2
                    ... God, that cannot lie...
               Numbers 23:19
                    God [is] not a man, that he should lie; neither the son
                    of man, that he should  repent: hath he said, and shall
                    he not  do [it]? or  hath he spoken,  and shall he  not
                    make it good?

               Psalms 138:2
                    I  will worship toward thy  holy temple, and praise thy
                    name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou
                    hast magnified thy word above all thy name. 

               I John 3:8
                    For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he
                    might destroy the works of the devil. 

               I John 4:4
                    Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them:
                    because greater is he  that is in you, than he  that is
                    in the world. 

               Psalm 35:27
                    Let them  shout for  joy, and be  glad, that  favour my
                    righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the
                    LORD   be  magnified,   which  hath  pleasure   in  the
                    prosperity of his servant.

               Romans 8:26-28
                    Likewise the  Spirit also helpeth our  infirmities: for
                    we know not  what we should pray  for as we ought:  but
                    the  Spirit  itself  maketh intercession  for  us  with
                    groanings  which  cannot  be  uttered.    And  he  that
                    searcheth  the hearts knoweth what [is] the mind of the
                    Spirit, because  he maketh intercession for  the saints
                    according to [the  will of] God.   And we know that all
                    things work together for good to them that love God, to
                    them who are the called according to [his] purpose.                       Part III Scriptures for Specific Requests

          A. Petitioning for Physical Health

               Proverbs 4:20-22
                    My son, attend  to my words; incline thine  ear unto my
                    sayings.    Let them  not depart from thine  eyes; keep
                    them in the  midst of thine heart. For  they [are] life
                    unto those  that  find them,  and health  to all  their
                    flesh.

               Matthew 8:17
                    That it might be  fulfilled which was spoken  by Esaias
                    the prophet, saying, Himself took  our infirmities, and
                    bare [our] sicknesses. 

               I Peter 2:24
                    Who his  own self bare our sins in  his own body on the
                    tree,  that we,  being dead to  sins, should  live unto
                    righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 

               III John 2
                    Beloved,  I  wish  above all  things  that  thou mayest
                    prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 

               Colossians 2:10
                    And ye  are complete in him,  which is the  head of all
                    principality and power.

          B. Petitioning for Finances

               Phillipians 4:19
                    But my God shall supply  all your need according to his
                    riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 
               III John 2
                    Beloved,  I  wish  above all  things  that  thou mayest
                    prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 

               Deuteronomy 8:18
                    But thou shalt  remember the LORD thy God:  for [it is]
                    he that giveth thee power to get wealth...

               Joshua 1:8-9
                    This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth;
                    but thou  shalt meditate  therein day  and night,  that
                    thou mayest  observe to  do  according to  all that  is
                    written  therein:  for  then thou  shalt  make  thy way
                    prosperous,  and then  thou  shalt  have good  success.
                    Have  not I  commanded thee?  Be strong  and of  a good
                    courage; be not  afraid, neither be thou  dismayed: for
                    the  LORD thy  God [is]  with  thee whithersoever  thou
                    goest. 

          C. Petitioning for Wisdom and Spiritual Insight

               James 1:5-7
                    If  any of  you lack wisdom,  let him ask  of God, that
                    giveth  to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and
                    it  shall be  given him.   But  let him  ask in  faith,
                    nothing wavering. For  he that wavereth is  like a wave
                    of the sea  driven with the  wind and tossed.   For let
                    not that man  think that he shall receive  any thing of
                    the Lord. 

               Proverbs 1:23
                    ... Behold, I will pour out my spirit unto  you, I will
                    make known my words unto you. 

                         Colossians 2:3

                    of wisdom and knowledge. 

               I Corinthians 1:24
                    ... Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 

               Proverbs 3:5-6
                    Trust in  the LORD with  all thine heart; and  lean not
                    unto   thine  own  understanding.    In  all  thy  ways
                    acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 

                    Additional  Suggested  Passages:    Colossians  1:9-14;

                    I  can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth
                    me. 
           
               Hebrews 13:5
                    ... I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 

               Colossians 2:10
                    ... And ye are complete in him.

               I Peter 5:7
                    Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
               Psalm 34:18-19
                    The  LORD [is]  nigh unto  them  that are  of a  broken
                    heart;  and saveth  such as  be of  a  contrite spirit.
                    Many  [are] the afflictions  of the righteous:  but the
                    LORD delivereth him out of them all. 

               Psalm 37:23-24
                    The steps of a [good] man are ordered by  the LORD: and
                    he delighteth in his way.  Though he fall, he shall not

                    his hand. 

               Psalm 55:22
                    Cast  thy burden upon  the LORD,  and he  shall sustain
                    thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. 

               Psalm 121:2-3
                    My help [cometh] from  the LORD, which made  heaven and
                    earth.   He will not  suffer thy foot  to be  moved: he
                    that keepeth thee will not slumber. 

               Isaiah 41:10
                    Fear thou not;  for I [am] with thee:  be not dismayed;
                    for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will
                    help thee; yea, I will  uphold thee with the right hand
                    of my righteousness. 

               Matthew 10:29-31
                    Are not  two sparrows sold  for a farthing? and  one of
                    them shall not  fall on the ground without your Father.
                    But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Fear
                    ye  not  therefore,  ye  are of  more  value  than many
                    sparrows. 

               Romans 8:31
                    If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us? 
               II Timothy 1:7
                    For God hath  not given us the  spirit of fear;  but of
                    power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 

          E. Petitioning for Emotional and Psychological Health

               Colossians 3:17
                    And  whatsoever ye do in word or  deed, [do] all in the
                    name of  the Lord Jesus,  giving thanks to God  and the
                    Father by him. 
           
               Colossians 2:10
                    ... And ye are complete in Him.

               Phillipians 4:13
                    I  can do all  things through Christ  who strengtheneth
                    me.

               I Corinthians 10:13
                    There  hath no  temptation  taken you  but  such as  is
                    common to  man:  but God  [is] faithful,  who will  not
                    suffer you  to be tempted  above that ye are  able; but
                    will  with the  temptation also  make a way  to escape,
                    that ye may be able to bear [it]. 

               I Corinthians 10:31
                    Whether  therefore ye eat,  or drink, or  whatsoever ye
                    do, do all to the glory of God. 

               I Corinthians 6:19-20
                    What? know ye not  that your body is the  temple of the
                    Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and
                    ye are  not your own?  For ye  are bought with a price:
                    therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit,
                    which are God's. 
               Romans 6:12-14
                    Let  not sin therefore reign  in your mortal body, that
                    ye should obey it in  the lusts thereof.  Neither yield
                    ye  your members  [as]  instruments of  unrighteousness
                    unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those  that
                    are   alive  from  the  dead,  and  your  members  [as]
                    instruments of righteousness  unto God.  For  sin shall
                    not have  dominion over you:  for ye are not  under the
                    law, but under grace. 


                          Part IV Suggestions

                    Here  are a  few  simple  suggestions  worthy  of  your
          consideration as you go to prayer:

          1. Choose a time and place of relative quiet.  Take the phone off
          the hook if necessary.

          2. You may  find a notebook helpful for jotting down thoughts and
          ideas as you pray.

          3. Make a mental or written list of your requests.   Confirm your
          requests daily by  claiming God's word until the  answer has been
          received.

          4.  After  concluding Step  1,  move into  supplication;  Step 2.
          Begin to make your claim by  agreeing with God's word.  You  will
          note  that Step  2 is  divided  into three  sections:   promises,
          possessions  and power.  Begin  in supplication by claiming God's
          eternal promises  as your  own.  Remember,  Jesus died,  shed his
          blood,  and  was  bodily resurrected  that  these  promises might
          become our personal inheritance as children of God.

          5. After  being spiritually refreshed  with the promises  of God,
          continue in  supplication by scripturally  identifying with  your
          possessions  applicable to your  request.  These  possessions are
          listed in Part III as A  through E.  For example, if praying  for
          healing and a financial need, refer to letters A and B.  Omit all
          others in this  petition since they have nothing to  do with your
          request.

          6.   Immediately   following   your   identification  with   your
          possessions,  it becomes  necessary to  exercise  your power  and
          authority as a Bible believer.  This is the third section of Step
          2.   Hold fast to the  confession of authority regardless  of the
          circumstances until you receive the answer to your prayer.

          7.  Conclude your  petition with  Step 3 and  learn the  value of
          personal worship.

          8.  Continue  to practice  Steps  2 and  3 until  your  prayer is
          answered.

          9. Finally,  if you need to petition God for problems with weight
          loss, smoking, drug or alcohol abuse, refer to letter E in Step 2
          daily.


       CONCLUSION                                      __________

                    This booklet is offered as a guide, not as a formula to
          calculate instant answers.  Phillipians  4:6 is very clear:  "But
          in everything."   This  implies the norm.   When  Phillipians 4:6
          becomes as  natural as breathing,  the power and presence  of God
          will always be  available at a moments notice.  Learn to pray and
          pray  to learn  and let me  hear from you  concerning answers you
          have received and any questions you may have.
