God Answers Specific Prayers!

Hello everybody,

My name is Alex, and I would like to tell you about the exciting experience of having prayers answered by God, and how I have learned to pray effectively - and to have God moving mountains in my life!

In 1999 I met some people on the street who spoke to me about the Bible, and told me that it is the truth. I did not really trust them, as I thought that I already knew everything about the Bible. But I was interested and dared to try trusting the Bible instead of my own thoughts, just as it says in PROVERBS 3:5 "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own undestanding." It is written in MARK 10:15 "Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein". After considering this verse I started to listen with an open heart. Afterwards I was amazed when I got proof again and again that the Bible really is the Word of God! So I became a Christian (by repentance, baptism and receiving the Holy Spirit according to ACTS 2:38), and joined the church called Christian Assemblies International.

In those days I was a student and had financial problems - like most students here in Russia I was always painfully short of money. I did not even have enough to invite a friend out to a cafe, let alone rent a flat and live independently. Such luxuries as traveling abroad were absolutely out of the question.

in this family of God, every one cares for each other

Other people in the church often "treated" me if we went out for a snack and my costs were often paid for me when we did something together, going to cinema. On a couple of occasions I was invited to attend Annual General Meeting of the Assemblies in Cornwall, England, where I received a lot of teaching and instruction from the Bible as well as enjoying memorable times of lively Christian fellowship. All my costs were paid, and I was also provided with some pocket money to be able to relax a bit, buy an occasional ice cream, and even take some souvenirs home! I still really appreciate this help and support, and thank God for it all. It showed me once again that in this family of God, every one cares for each other as it is written in the Bible: JOHN 13:34 "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another".

It was always on my heart to have enough money to pay for myself, not only for everyday needs, but also for any future travels abroad. Now I also felt a burden to be able to help others. My first objective was to finish my studies, but I also needed to be able to work for good money while studying. It was not really possible when I thought about it, but I prayed about it and then the Lord helped me greatly; I was able to study without going to the institute for lessons, and so I had time in the day to work and start earning at the same time! I really praise God for this miracle, which was only one of many...

During my hard time of studying I read a book called The Fourth Dimension by Dr. Yonggi Cho. This book teaches how to pray specifically in order to get the perfect answers, as we are instructed by the Bible to pray according to our needs. The author writes about his own stories, and tells how he was praying for many things. For example, he needed a bike to get to work; he prayed for a long time, but did not get any answers. Then, after a while, God told him that He could supply him with any bicycle, but in his prayers he was not making it clear exactly which one he needed. So from that moment on Yonggi Cho started to pray specifically for a certain bike, and very soon he got a bike – exactly the one he asked for!

Having this story in mind, and following the pattern of Yonggi Cho and also taking advice given to me by my friend, I started to pray for a new job. I was in a difficult financial situation, and urgently needed a good job with a higher salary. In my prayers I prayed specifically about the salary, and asked God to provide me with a new job, with a salary of 10,000 Russian Roubles (this was in 2003). My salary at that time was less than half-as-much, and this request seemed impossible for me at first, when I started to pray.

Next, I decided to take a day off from work to look for a new job. I bought a magazine which listed job vacancies and started to phone up different plants and firms. Almost immediately I found a really interesting advertisement. I called the company straight away and was given an appointment the same day. The boss showed me around and explained what my duties would be. When he mentioned the salary I got really excited, as he told me that I would get 10,000 roubles! That was exactly the salary I was praying for! It was really amazing, and a miracle for me!

I still pray as specifically as I can, and the Lord always provides my needs!

As the Bible tell us: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (HEBREWS 11:1).

Praise the Lord!


Hi Alex please pray for me for a office job..payment R13000,00 per month.I'm a student and cant afort all the expenses..please

Hi Alex,
Thank you very much for sharing your testimony with us!
This is just confirmation from the Lord that He answers specific prayers.
At the start of the year, I had 4 prayer requests : A bursary, Permanent Residency in the country I am currently living in, a God-fearing woman (wife to be) and a better job (with a specific salary). I am happy to say that the Lord has answered the first 3 requests; I am trusting him for the last one before the end of the year.
So Specific Prayer really works!!!

Please pray for me that God will provide for my husband and I financial breakthrough especially to meet up with the school fees payment for our children. My son just got admission to a university in America with a scholarship which has been a great desire that we have prayed for and he has worked so hard. But due to the economic situation now in Nigeria there's no way on our own we can afford what Is left for us to pay. Please pray that God will open doors financially, that the blessing of the admission will not be lost. I know He can bless us in this time of economic hardship since He does not depend on the economy of the world. We have struggled so much with payment of School fees for our children. Please pray for us this specific prayer. God bless you.

Hello, I will pray that God will provide for you. May God bless your family! Kind regards, Alex

I am struggling to make ends meet at my work. If I don't find a better earning job soon or a second work I might lose my home due to not being able to make the monthly payment. Please pray for me that I am blessed soon with a work that helps me to earn atleast 10 000 Rand.

I am believing God for uae work visa.
A uae employer I met 2014 in uae couldn't employ me b'cos of a ban on my passport as a result of contract termination with my first employer so I came back to Nigeria.
Now the ban expired the new employer asked for my passport after I have disturbed him. so I sent my passport to him, and I have fasted and have been praying for the visa.
just last week I heard that uae has stopped issuing visas to Nigerians as a result of their numerous crimes in the country.
Again I have been calling the employer and he hasn't picked up my calls. and am worried. Please pray with me. I need miracle

Hello, I hope that you are doing well. I will pray that God will supply a good job for you and that they will start issuing visas to Nigerians again. May God bless you. Kind regards, Alex

My son was struggling with substance abuse and ADHD and constantly getting arrested due to the lack of consequential thinking; one time he was arrested for a felony charge. I prayed and prayed to God to work a miracle in my son and to lift the charge. His charge was dropped to a violation and he now has consequential thinking. He wasn't even ready or willing to change at the time but now he is a completely different person.

Praise God, what a miracle! Thank you for sharing your testimony. Kind regards, Alex

I am encouraged by your testimony. I had a job some months ago but I resigned due to pressure I felt as a result of the nature of the job. I had no peace at all and it really affected me emotionally and physically. Currently I am trusting God for another job with a better pay and good working conditions. After resigning I was forced to go back home I am also trusting God for my own place again . Please pray with me.

Hello, thank you for writing tom me. I will pray that God will supply all you need. A better job and a place to stay. May God bless you!                                                                                                                                                                    "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." (Mat 6:33). Alex

God has always been good to me. He has never left me or forsaken me. I recently made a financial choice that left me in a huge financial hole and without a vehicle. I have always been so frugal in my spending. I support my church and missions, as well the sick and those in need. Now I am asking you to pray with me in asking god to restore the finances that were lost and provide me with the necessary vehicle. I truly believe that no good thing will God withhold from me, if I walk in obedience to Him. So, in Jesus' name I believe, receive, and thank God for answering my prayers.

Hello, how are you going? I will pray that God will supply all your needs. Pray specifically for your needs. Actually reading the book of Yonngi Cho "4th Dimention" will help! Phil 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Please pray that Irvin is healed of cancer and will be cancer free forever!

Hi Alex, I read through your write up and it helped me to continue to maintain my faith in God. I have been jobless for almost 2 years now and it still looks like a miracle from God how I have been able to cope with my family expenses to date. I know God has a bigger plan for me and I am believing Him for a new well paying job. Right now I am at a cross roads and feeling dejected with worry. My daughter will be returning to University in September and I am at a loss where her school fees will come from. Same situation applies to my other child in high school. My mortgage is almost due and bills are mounting. I am still holding on firm to God's word in Jeremiah 32:27; “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?". Please join me in praying to God for a good job that will pay enough to offset my bills and help me make my offerings and tithes. I know God cannot fail. I need His healing balm upon my life right now.

Hello, thank you for writing to me. It's good to read how God provides for you. I will pray for you too, keep trusting God! I also still feel sometimes desperate and it's hard at times but God still provides jobs for me. It's amazing, that God is providing jobs for me so I can pay bills and look after my family! Recently I lost my job and I was really disappointed, but then at the same day I got a phonecall from a guy that I got another job starting next day! I applied for that job 2 month before! Praise God! 

Deuteronomy 31:6 - Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Kind regards, Alex

I prayed and fasted for a job in 2011 and God honoured me with a good job in a big firm the same year. This year, 2016, due to economic hardship in my country, many firms decided to retrench some employees. My firm too wants to lay of some staff, that are less productive, including me. I have started prayer and fasting, asking GOD to help me to be among those that will remain as staff at the company. Please help me by praying to our Lord to favour me in Jesus Christ's Name, amen.

Just had my very first, specific, against all odds, prayer answered yesterday. I am so thankful for it. However, because of the power of prayer and this blessing, I felt compelled to return the favor after reading your comment. I just prayed for you and hope it is not too late!?
