God Answers, But Satan Opposes
Then he said, “Daniel, don't be afraid. God has heard your prayers ever since the first day you decided to humble yourself in order to gain understanding. I have come in answer to your prayer. The angel prince of the kingdom of Persia opposed me for 21 days. Then Michael, one of the chief angels, came to help me, because I had been left there alone in Persia" (Daniel 10:12-13).
Prophecy Update: The Lord said, do not fear the things that are about to unfold regarding the current clouds of war, just continue to pray and purify yourself to escape most of the atrocities that are about to come about. The Lord has revealed to me that Russia and its allies are eyeing to overthrow the US dollar and replace it with another and this means will be achieved through the destructive force of war. My Western brethren, please pray and work hard to become debt-free. Brethren, I am pained by the evil we are about to witness, I don't know when but please join us in prayer.
Brethren, the Lord has revealed to us that when we pray without faith, or with unconfessed sin our prayers are wasted and it does not reach Heaven (Matthew 5:23-24). This brings to remembrance a message the Lord gave us when we disobeyed Him and He ordered us to redo those prayers, remember those prayers were for the deliverance, salvation, and blessings for others. It also brings to remembrance that the Lord revealed that if we show love and kindness to others, it greatly pleases our Heavenly Father.
Now given to the above scripture, the devil and his demons are listening to our prayers, why did they (demons) try to intercept Daniel's prayers if they were not listening? As a result, Daniel had to wait for 21 days for an answer to his prayers. During the time that the Lord was speaking to us as a family, we would ask the Lord almost anything but He would not always give us an answer because certain requests required fasting and prayer over a period of many days (Acts 13:2).
Just Keep On Praying
As a pastor, I often heard people and Christians alike saying that 'God does not answer my prayers'. While no one has been given the authority to judge the prayers of others, we need to consider a few things when we pray. Are we praying by Faith? Do we believe that the things we are asking are realistic, (Mark 11:24), not offered to promote greed or desiring the things of others, or do we really have a need, and how urgently do we need it? I would often ask the Lord when I would receive something He promised but His answers would always be that "Your father must just have and continue to pray". We encourage you likewise dear brethren, don't give up praying and believing, you will receive your breakthrough.
