Faith is a spiritual force that commits God’s integrity to make good His promise. In other words, if God has said anything to you and you have faith, you therefore have committed His integrity; because faith is God’s instrument for answered prayers.
Bible in John 11:43 says, And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. When Jesus got to the tomb of Lazarus, the first thing He did was to give thanks to His Father for two reasons; that the Father had heard Him, even before praying, and that the Father always hears Him. Moreover, Jesus Christ did not pray the gentleman’s prayer that is common in many so called elitist Christians organisations today. Also, in the prayer of our Lord at the tomb of Lazarus, we can see Him expressing His faith in what His Father is capable of doing. We can also, perceive the cordial relationship between the Son and the Father in this prayer. This relationship gave the Son the confidence, to ask the Father what He knew would glorify the Father. Jesus would not, ask for anything that did not bring glory to His Father. Many times, we pray and receive no answer because we did not ask with faith. So faith is a guaranteed access to all your inheritance in life; it is a bridge that connects you to your destination. As a child of God, you are supposed to have faith and believe in your prayers and also the word of God.

As a believer, you should learn to understand the need to develop and strengthen your faith. The prayer of faith, is making decrees based on His words with deep conviction and settled assurance. There is a prayer called prayer of faith; not just prayer alone. In the kingdom of God, it is not just prayer that works; it is prayer wrapped in faith that produces good and desired results. The prayer of faith is not seeing the physical before believing; it is believing before seeing physical manifestations. Therefore faith is God’s instrument for answered prayers. As you begin to pray with faith, so shall all your expectation that are in accordance with God’s word come to pass in your life in the name of Jesus Amen.
