How to receive from the Father-Step 7(Final Step)

Make that prayer a statement of faith. You can believe you have received that prayer immediately you've prayed it. Move to a statement of faith rather than a prayer said in unbelief. You prayed it, so believe it, rather than doubt it. After you have prayed, begin to declare that you have received your petition. Claim it, check and expect the answer. Smith Wigglesworth once said "If you pray seven times for any one thing, you prayed six times in unbelief" I think the purport of this is to say, after you have prayed, say: Father I thank you for answering my prayers.
Your demeanour, and your outlook should not remain as it was prior to your prayers and petitions. For example, Hannah was said to change her countenance after she had prayed for a child. 1Samuel 1:18 'and she said, Let your maidservant find favour in your sight.

It's only a thankful heart that can receive a needful petition.
There was a lady who I was told, shared a testimony where she thanked the Lord more than 7,000 times for giving her a life partner. She barely left the place of thanksgiving when God answered her. I believe it is the height of faith, to …

MEDITATE ON GOD'S WORD-STEP 5

ASKING THE FATHER: STEP 5-MEDITATE ON HIS PROMISES Hope you are following the steps. By the way, I need to add that all the steps are in sequence and must be followed in that order. God, however, is a gracious father, He will not delay your answers just because you have not followed a particular formula. We teach these things to enhance your Christian walk, so that you can enjoy a wonderful progress on this journey of life.
Let us look at step 5. Meditate on God's Promises(word) Prov 4:20-22 identify certain criteria:
1. Attend to my words. This phrase counsels us to give heart to God's word. Give attention to it, for God will make His word good and certain in your life. This is very important, because it is at this stage that you begin to see yourself in your answered prayer. If you are asking for healing, see yourself healed by meditating on God's words. Isaiah 53:5 assures us that By His stripes we were healed. So, it's a done deal. Step into your healing. Matthew 8:17 …
