 Some Christians have asked "how do I receive answers to prayers?" "I've prayed and prayed and yet nothing happened," they've complained. Some, in frustration, have given up on prayer completely. If only these folks understood the faith principle, they wouldn't experience such frustrations. 

Mark 11:24 For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it].

God didn't say if you pray hard enough He'll answer you; rather, He says "whatever you desire when you pray, believe that you receive them and you shall have them" (Mark 11:24). That's what faith is all about. You must understand that your requests in prayer don't take God by surprise; He doesn't start considering whether or not to answer you at the time when you are praying. Matthew 6:8 says "... Your father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him". If He already knew what you wanted before you asked, it means He already had the answer prepared. So, what is needed to make the answer real to you is your faith. 

That's what makes the difference! If you asked for something and didn't get the answer when you wanted it, the problem wasn't with God answering your prayer, perhaps you don't know how to receive. God already said when you ask, believe that you receive and you shall have. So, when you put up a request before God, receive what you're asking for by declaring, Father I've asked for such-and-such, therefore I receive it now in the Name of Jesus." Remember, you don't say "I receive it," so that you can have it; you receive it because you know and trust that it is yours NOW!. That's faith at work. Faith doesn't try to get something to happen; faith knows and accept that it has happened and therefore confesses and endorses it to be so NOW!.
