Conditions Of Prevailing Prayer

By George Müller

    - Entire dependence upon the merits and mediation of the Lord Jesus Christ, as the only ground of any claim of blessing. (See John 14:13-14; 15:16, etc.)

    - Separation from all known sin. If we regard iniquity in our hearts, the Lord will not hear us, for it would be sanctioning sin (Psa. 66:18).

    - Faith in God's word of promise as confirmed by His oath.  Not to believe Him is to make Him both a liar and a perjurer (Heb. 11:6; 6:18-20).

    - Asking in accordance with His will. Our motives must be godly:  we must not seek any gift of God to consume it upon our lusts (1 John 5:14; Jas. 4:3).

    - Importunity in supplication. There must be waiting on God and waiting for God, as the husbandman has long patience to wait for the harvest (Jas. 5:7; Luke 18:1-8).
