P.U.S.H. = Pray Until Something Happens

by Rex Rouis

The way to get real-life results in prayer is to seek God with an attitude that says, “No matter how long it takes, or whatever I have to do, I will not be denied.” This is not arrogance; it’s Godly hunger. It is not about pushing God, but about pushing yourself into God. This is not praying for the sake of praying. This is praying to see the hand of God move. This is desperate hungry praying. This is the type of prayer that gets answers.

Faith takes two things, first the written scriptures (hope) and then the spoken personal word of God (faith) – Romans 10:17. The scriptures show us the general will of God and communicate the conditions that must be met to receive faith and see His hand move. His spoken personal word reveals His will to us personally, and let’s us know when we have met those conditions. The goal is to hear God confirm His promise and let Him place His witness into our heart. The promise then comes alive and becomes a reality to us. This reality is ‘the substance (lit. – reality, assurance, title-deed) of things (previously) hoped for, the evidence of things not (yet) seen’ (Hebrews 11:1).

This is not arrogance; it’s Godly hunger.
This seeking turns the general promises of God into personal realities. This is the period when we work the word and the word works in us. Seeking God merges the word of God and the will of God into our lives. We become one with the word. This is what Jesus was referring to when He said, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, (you shall) ask whatever you will, and it will be done for you.” (John 15:7) This faith process turns desires into Bible hopes, and Bible hopes into real life realities. It is not easy, but it is never impossible. Anybody with enough hunger can make it happen.

The process usually takes time, and there are no shortcuts. God does not respond to part-time seekers. He is only found by those who seek Him with their whole heart. The Bible says that, ‘You must be diligent so as to realize the full assurance of hope, so that you will receive the promise’ (Hebrews 6:11). Growing faith is hard work, for the Bible goes on to say, ‘Don’t be sluggish but be imitators of those who through faith and patience have inherited the promises’ (Hebrews 6:12).

This is desperate hungry praying. This is the type of prayer that gets answers.
Pray till you receive an answer from God, for when you do, you will have the victory. You must persevere until you get to a place where you are ‘fully assured that what God has promised, He is able also to perform’ (Romans 4:21). When you hear Him you have the answer, for Paul says, “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the (spoken) word of God’ (Romans 10:17). The word translated ‘word’ here is the Greek word rhema and it speaks of a personal face-to-face type of communication. He is not talking about a mere reading of the word. This is deeper. This is God making the word on the page come alive in your heart. The word on the page must become the word in your heart before you can have enough faith to receive from God.

Then, and only then, can you speak faith’s victory out of your mouth. That is the only kind of speaking that makes a difference. This kind of speaking will move mountains. Seek Him till you get it. Jesus told us that in prayer we should always pray and not faint. Don’t give up. Seek Him till you hear His voice. Let Him deal with your heart, for as you do, He will speak your answer.

  1. I lost both my precious daughters in a car accident on September 28th, tiffany passed right away, Amanda suffered a severe head injury and passed on October 24th. These are my only children . Please pray for a miracle for tiffany and amanda. Thank you, suzanna

      Susanna – I have to be honest with you. I cannot pray for Tiffany and Amanda, they are in a wonderful place in God’s presence and we cannot do anything more for them. I do pray for you that you have the grace and strength to live your life and wait till you can see them again in Heaven. You will see them again and you will spend ETERNITY with them in God. That is our reward and great consolation.

      Read this book – ‘Intra Muros’ (My Dream of Heaven) by Rebecca Ruter Springer – it is a great comfort. Read the comments on the page first. We love you. God’s mercy is all over you in Jesus Name.

      Heaven is better than you think and your eternity with them will be much better than you can imagine. You will have a great reception when you go on. Allow God to work in your heart so you can live on in victory till then. They would want you to do that. It will bless them. Rex

Do I have a chance

  6. Help me in prayers in the situation am going through with my fiance Ntombifuthi Calorine Ngwenya .She is alwz being driven by her friends 2 do bad things . I believe God will gv her direction in Jesus name of Nazareth

  7. Thank you so much for your your words of encouragement. I am working and praying for every day and night, I am beginning to see that God loves me and I am BEGINNING to see and Believe that I am Saved. I won’t give up until I can shout it from the Roof Top that I am Saved.

  8. Ann Seabrook, you must get this settled in your heart and mind that the word of God is true. Joel 2:32 (O T) says Whoever calls on the name of the Lord -SHALL- be saved. Now Acts 2:21, and Romans 10:13 (N T) reads the same. Romans 10:8-10 gives more assurance. It will be wise to read these scriptures, confess them and meditate on them until you get them deep into your heart. Then doubt will go.

  9. Most Gracious and Eternal Heavenly Father, I pray that you will repair the friendship that I have with my guy friend Jovani and that you will help us to reach out to one another and reconnect and talk to each other soon. I pray that you will change his heart and allow him to reach out to me and be kind to me again. Please do this in your own time and in your own way. I need your help, Father. I won’t give up on you or my friend. We have not spoken in four almost five months, since 1 July 2017, when he stopped talking to me for no reason at all. I miss him and I look forward to seeing/talking to him again one day. I claim my renewed friendship in Jesus Christ blessed name, Amen.

  10. I don’t know if I can leave a prayer, but , if not, disregard. I have suffered from anxiety for more than 20 years now and it has greatly disabled me in so many ways. I cannot tell people at my church, they treat me as if I am possessed by the devil. This anxiety is an illness, not evil forces and if it is from evil forces I need them purged I’m sure. I am a christian, I’ve been one for more than 40 years of my life. I need whatever kind of prayer I can get. I’ve always been under the assumption I was to pray and leave whatever I prayed for alone. Or not to pray for my own self. But I can’t do anything for anyone if I feel like I do. I have taken medications that have left me feeling worse, I have finished a treatment “TMS” transcranial magnetic, stimulation. In hopes that I would feel better. I feel worse. My heart feels like it is pounding out of my body, I had my heart checked, they told me it’s fine. I want to function as a human being. I have lost hope. I have no one to talk to about just about anything. I don’t know what to do. There are more things, but my mind won’t stay on task long enough. I don’t have any emotions anymore. They are all dulled. I don’t like it.

    1. I pray for you, a precious child of God! I Pray that God gives you an open and willing mind – that you go into your secret place and Pray with all your mind and sole and leave your Problem there. Trusting in God through Jesus Christ that he will answer your Prayer. Because He said he would! God does not lie.

      1. Thank you for your prayers, I know that God does not lie , that is why with all I have I believe he is healing this disabling anxiety. I thank God for you Mary.

    2. Hi, Alex. I found myself in your story.
      I have been suffering from social anxiety and unbearing anxiety of any kind.
      On September 2017 I go back to work,I work in school.
      I was able to see clearly and my social anxiety lessened tremendously.
      Also, in several cases my anxiety would be so overwhelming I wished I wasn’t alive. But I had it throughout my life.
      And when God saved me it got worse because I was so sensitive to sin.
      My pastor counseled me insisting that the only way to heal from anxiety or any kind of spiritual problem as a christian,was to think about how to please God, not myself or others.
      Many times in my suffering this sounded so insensitive or like he lacked the understanding of my horrible condition. But little by little I have found that to be true.Through sufferings and tears and supplications
      I am still battling an amazingly impossible battle. In my mind it is totally impossible to win,but not
      at all for the God who made the universe and everything in it.
      He made me. After a life of very low self esteem I rest on his words:I created you in my image.
      Alex, this is possible,healing is possible.

  11. My husband left my son & myself & moved clear across the country. I want him to come back if even just for my son. Is this not something I should pray for, should I instead pray for his selfishness to end or that he lets God into his life/heart? My son prays every night for his daddy to come home & stay home forever.

  12. Ann, there is something making you feel that you not saved. An event that happened in your life, forgiveness with someone or someones or even yourself. Who ever it is you need to forgive them. Most of all forgive yourself. By praying ” I know my heavenly father forgive me Ann ” several times if needed

      Mike – Can’t do that. I don’t know if it is the will of God or not, and the other person has a choice that we cannot override. You need to P.U.S.H. to hear from God, so you will know what to do and what to believe for. You can’t believe for something that is not the will of God. God confirms His word and His will. It is our job to do what is necessary to seek and find that will.

      P.U.S.H. isn’t meant to push your own will, it is meant to find the will of God and then make sure that happens. You might have to make some big changes in your heart before any relationship changes occur. Reread the article and this time focus on the seeking God part. Rex

  13. God bless REX ROUIS for this article; I have received the same revelation; revelation knowledge is what we, children of God lack, and perish one way or another (not enjoying the blessings that God has already blessed us with) Hosea 4:6.

  14. Scott, I will pray for you. Can I ask that you pray for me, I had a brain haemorrhage in August 2013. I still have not made a full recovery but am praying to Jesus that I will. I know how you feel and I will of course pray for you. God bless. Maria

  15. Ann Seabrook YOU ARE 100% SAVED. STOP LISTENING TO THE DEVIL. STOP DOUBTING. KEEP GOING BE BLESSED.

  16. Hello. Steps to salvation. First, admit that you are a sinner (Romans 3:23). Second, Repent (Acts 3:19). Third, Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for your sins (Romans 5:8). Fourth, Invite Jesus into your life through the prayer of faith (Revelation 3:20)

    THERE IS THEREFORE NOW NO CONDEMNATION TO THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.

    After prayer of faith for your salvation. All you need is to believe that Jesus has taken away your sins and that you are forgiven and do not allow any doubt to exist in you again and pray to God to sanctify you and baptise you in the Holy ghost. If any man be in Christ is a new creature, old things are passed away behold, all things have become new. Pray constantly to God and believe on His name every time. Do not allow sin or any form of sin in you again. Read your bible daily and pray on it. God bless you!

  17. May I ask for a prayer I suffered a massive stroke last year at the age of 39,it’s by the grace of god that I survived my stroke lasted for 6hours before I was able to get medical treatment my prayer is for a total restoration I can use all the prayers I can get

  18. This seems like this was printed with me in mind. I pray morning noon and night. I am still not SURE I am Saved. God knows I don’t want to die being uncertain. I’ve been baptized, 2x one Baptist and once in the Apostolic faith. All Chistian churches. Not sprinkled, but Submersion. I believe in God and Jesus Christ. I just feel I am missing in my Faith! I read my King James Bible every night, I understand what I am reading!
    I am female and am 70 years old. As you may understand my urgency. Please, can you help someone like me?

    1. Dear Ann
      Do you believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?
      Do you believe that He died to take away your sins and so that you can be born again?
      Do you believe God the Father sent Jesus here to this earth and accomplished the work of destroying the devils work? Jesus said “It Is Finished”.
      Do you believe that Jesus finished the work that the Father asked Him to do?
      Jesus said that the work of God is this: To believe in the one that He sent.
      Ann you said you were baptized. You have done what He asked you to do.

      Ann you cannot go by “Your Feelings”, that is of the flesh.
      Ann by Faith, rest in the finished work that Jesus done on the cross for YOU and God’s peace will come over you and you will be at rest.
      God’s blessings are upon you “NOW.”

      1. Thank you Steve Miller. I am getting ever so close to FEELING my Faith, not completly there yet, but I am NOT giving up. Continue to Pray for me, and keep in touch. I thank God for you. Thank God for giving us Jesus Christ who took away the sins of the world.

        1. Dear Ann
          Faith is not a feeling. Understanding that fact alone is one of the greatest blessings you can ever have
          because it is based upon the Word of God, which is none other than Jesus Christ Himself.
          Faith is believing that the Word of God to us is TRUE.
          Faith is a choice to believe the same way that Abraham made a choice to believe God’s word to him.
          In Psalm 138:2 God’s word says that He exalts his WORD above His Name.
          In Psalm 119:160 God’s word says that the Sum of God’s Word is Truth.
          John 8:32 God’s word says that YOU shall know the Truth and the Truth will make you free.
          Psalm 119:130 As people understand your word, it brings light to their lives.
          Your word makes even simple people wise.
          Proverbs 4:20-22 God’s word says: My son, attend to My Words, incline your ear to My sayings. Let them not depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are LIFE to those that find them, and HEALTH to all their flesh.

          Ann rest in God’s finished work that He accomplished through His Son Jesus on the Cross. Praise the Father.

    2. Ann Seabrook…the Word says confess Jesus Christ as your savior , Romans 10: 9-13, read it now, then read v 10 & 13. After u do, search ur heart, is there any unforgiveness, even forgiving urself? No matter what the issue may be, it could be the smallest thing, but if it troubles us…the enemy is cunning and knows our past and uses whatever it is to make us feel unworthy of Gods love and salvation thru Jesus. And not only does he condemns us, but lil by lil we do the same. If yes, look in the mirror and tell the person looking back at u “I forgive u” until the knot in the stomach is no more. I’ve been there until I heard Kenneth Copeland say something to the matter and I did what I ask u to do. He also said to tell satan “yes, I did or I was this n that, but God forgave me n not u and hell was created for u “Matthew 25:41” & what once u had is mine now, “Isaiah 14:12-15. cause God forgave me “Micah 7:19;Jeremiah 31:34 not u “Rev 20:1-15; Luke 10:18” and remember that its written u shall bow n confess that my God Christ is ur Lord, “Luke 4:8; Romans 14:11;Philippians 2:9-11”. Praise God, I know who’s child I am…GOD’s. And so are u.
      All the best to you, dont doubt … satan must flee “James 4:7”
