How to Get God to Say Yes
 

A grad student once asked Albert Einstein, “In the light of so many things that were already discovered, what remains that’s worthy of research?” Einstein’s answer shocked him. “Prayer, he said. “Learn how prayer works.” 

The Bible says lots about prayer. EM Bounds’ Complete Works on Prayer is almost 600 pages long and yet even knowing all about prayer doesn’t make our prayers effective, I still have to pray, and that’s where most people stumble. We see scriptures that promise us that if we agree with other believers and pray in Jesus’ name our requests will be granted. We try that and it doesn’t work, so most of us don’t pray much until disaster strikes, then we’re down on our knees. However, if we’re honest, we don’t expect much to come from those prayers either. The whole thing seems so hit and miss. We can even begin to question if God knows we’re alive.  

Prayer is a lot like fixing a computer. Whenever I’ve gotten instructions for a computer fix, there are many steps that must be taken in proper order to guarantee success. Prayer is like that. Of the many instructions on prayer in the Bible, if you exclude one, it probably won’t work. Having said that, new insights from quantum physics prove the efficacy of prayer and show us how simple the Bible’s teaching on prayer really are.  

In Divine Matrix, Greg Braden’s terrific book on quantum physics and prayer, he lists 20 secrets for accessing God’s help through prayer. The one that impresses me most is this: “Feeling is the language that speaks to the Divine Matrix. Feel as though your goal is accomplished and your prayer is already answered.”

 Several scriptures confirm this. (Sadly, most people don’t consider these passages when they wonder why their prayers go unanswered.) The first passage: “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16). Fervency - strong emotion - is truly essential. Someone once said, “God doesn’t answer prayer, He answers desperate prayer!” 

Jesus echoes the necessity of such feelings: “If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire and it shall be done for you” (John 15:7). Whenever I am in the Lord’s Presence I experience wonderful emotions. As the Psalmist said, “In Your presence is fullness of joy, At Your right hand, pleasures forevermore” (Psalm 16:11). His powerfully felt Presence assures us that the Lord is near and ready to listen. 

But ultimately, faith is the real currency of God’s Kingdom. “Whatever things you ask, when you pray, believe that you receive them and you will have them” (Mark 11:24). My feeble unbelieving prayers seldom get the response I desire, but once I believe without doubt, my request is already granted (Mark 11:23).

 Einstein was right. Eventually, the improbable study of physics shows us the secrets to answered prayer. That’s because prayer eventually brings us into the delicious Presence of eternal Love. It has to, for that’s who God is, and it’s also what He intends to be the ultimate energy of life. In this way, prayer brings us back to our truest source of our being. Once we’re there, in the Presence of divine Love, our desires are so purified He can finally do what He always wanted to do: grant us our heart’s desires. For then He knows that our desires won’t destroy us, they will make us better lovers. And that, not the hokey pokey, is what life is all about.
