“For this child I prayed; and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of him”. – 1 Samuel 1:27 (KJV)

The whole of 1 Samuel chapter 1 is about a woman named Hannah. Hannah was one of the wives of Elkanah; Elkanah married two wives, Peninnah and Hannah. Peninnah had children; sons and daughters. But Hannah did not have children. One day, during their yearly sacrifice at Shiloh, she left all of them and went into the house of the Lord and cried out to God. And God heard her cry and gave her a son named Samuel. She came back to Eli the priest to present the evidence of her prayer. Our God is a prayer answering God. The book of 1 Samuel 1:27 is a testament to the fact that God answers prayers, and that is why I have an assurance that you will surely testify.

Psalms 65:2 says “O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.” The bible is filled with assurances of the truth that our God is a prayer answering God. If you have obediently waited on Him, He will show Himself strong in your life. The book of Mark 11:24 declares: “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” (NKJV) It is already done. Our testimonies are guaranteed. Just believe it! All you should be doing now is thanking God because it is done. When you have this understanding, you will not pay attention to whatever the enemy is doing. His lies or antics will mean nothing to you because you know what God has said. And that is all you focus on.

I declare that whatever challenge you are faced with comes to an end in the name of Jesus. Whatever the sickness is called, I command it to bow. Every horn that’s opposing you is destroyed! your promotion is here! And your business will flourish in the name of Jesus.
