How to Pray and Receive the Desires of Your Heart

One Methods:

Have you ever prayed for something, but felt like God wasn't listening when you didn't receive it? It's important to remember that praying isn't a sure ticket to getting what you want. Increasing your faith and finding happiness in His guidance will eventually bring about your heart's desires. Once you've strengthened your relationship with God, you'll start getting what you want out of life.


  1. Present your requests in-faith/positively (not begging and pleading) as the greatest of teachers always prayed to "Father" in a manner such as:"Father, I pray that I do well on this, and recall everything I possibly need to get through it with good results. Lord, I expect Your blessing as Your will is done in my life."This approach holds true in business, at home or in school. Ask the guidance of our Almighty Father. Always ask his permission and blessing in everything you do; don't forget to pray about your dreams in life.
  2. Study, make sure that you understand your responsibilities and the subject; learn and show yourself as one who does not need to be ashamed when you have done your part to and have aligned you desires to do God's will!Then trust God to strengthen you.
  3. Be a good workman or student who knows your own strengths and skills.Know your privileges of asking for assistance in the situation and overcome your doubt. God blesses those who believe Him and act on that faith with confidence in Him. The second you need to do is hard work to reach your dreams. Always think positive about your dreams. Always remember this saying "If others can do it, why can't I?"
  4. Pray:it's your key, but your faith not only puts the key in the lock but also turns it when you believe for God's answer: "You must believe". God promises to show you His will in John 16:13, "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come." Jeremiah 33:3, ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
  5. Thank God in advance:"I know you have given me a sound mind and good ability. Help me to show your Love to others. Pray with thankfulness: "Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving." Colossians 4:2
  6. Choose to fulfill conditions like continuing to do "good," "trusting," "committing" (all of your ways) -- and "delighting" in the Lord.
  7. Align your desires to good:loving and helping others, and with that which is "humble, acceptable, good and pleasing" for others and especially to the Lord...
  8. Raise your head up.Go forward believing; look up and expect the answers to happen, and leave them to the power of thewill of God. If your dreams don't come true don’t get depressed and most of all don't loose hope. Always remember that God may be preparing a better dream for you to fulfill. Remember also that in every failure and success there is always a reason. When God closes one door, He opens another.
  1. Do not expect God to "throw gifts around" to any who would disrespect and misuse the gift or even turn and mistreat others, cheat and lie, be unfair and unreasonable with those weaker than oneself, etc.It will never work!
  2. Decide to fulfill your "desires in God" in good ways, then:(1) seek Him diligently (2) believing that "He is" and (3) that "He rewards" those who seek Him wholeheartedly.
  3. Have faith; remember God answers in His time not ours, but never give up no matter how hard the situation is.And, believe that He is already answering your prayer... it's that little thing called "faith"!
    "Do not fret... or be envious of those who [cheat] do wrong... [but] 'Trust' in the LORD, and 'do good'... 'Delight' yourself 'in the LORD' and he will give you the desires of your heart. 'Commit' your way to the LORD..."Psalms 37:1 - 5

    Let the pain run its course. Go though all the emotions you have too and ask God for strength. Above all remember things come and go, but God is forever.
  • Question
    Does the holy spirit guide me?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    That depends on what you believe. Many people would say no, just because they don't believe in the holy spirit. Many others would say yes, because they do believe in the holy spirit and they believe that it guides all of the faithful. What's important for you is to figure out what you believe.

    God knows everything about you already -- everything you've already done, said, thought, and everything you will do, say, and think in the future. Call out to him, ask for forgiveness. He loves you, no matter what you have done. "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." (1 Peter 5:7)

  • Question
    My parents won't let me go out to study with friends because they do not trust that I will be studying. I have done everything they want me to do. What should I do?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Ask if your friends can come over to study at your house instead. While they are there, make sure everyone is focused on studying. If you do this a couple of times, your parents might see that you are being responsible and allow you to go elsewhere to study.

"While I am disappointed that God has not answered my prayer request this time; knowing it is God in me that willsme to do his will. This article helped me to stay faithful even when God does not always give me the desires of my heart exactly when I ask for it. Sometimes we need to be patient. Sometimes he gives us more than we can ever hope for or desire. The key is to stay thankful, and faithful as we wait for him to work things out in our favor. "
