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 is Godly hunger. It is not about pushing God, but about pushing yourself into God. It is not praying for the sake of praying. It is praying to see the hand of God move. It is desperate hungry praying. It 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 lets 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, ‘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 until 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, (for) 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, you can speak faith’s victory to your life and situation. Speaking words filled with faith is the only kind of speaking that makes a difference. This kind of speaking will move mountains. Seek Him till you hear from Him. Jesus told us that in prayer we should always pray and never give up. 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 to you. When you hear the answer, you will have the answer.

When you hear the answer, you will have the answer.

  2. I thank God for this site. I am asking him to put someone in my life who is kind, caring, loyal– someone who will respect me.

  3. I pray to God to help me with my feelings of hopelessness and depression. I just recently received a God sent US residency after a 19 year waiting period, I’m 44 years old now and feeling even worse than before because this is my starting point at life at this age. Before receiving my Green Card I couldn’t do anything substantial career wise because of my legal status in the U.S but I couldn’t do anything about it. Now that I have it I feel that I still can’t do anything because I’m being rejected for my age for pension purposes and I am full of remorse for waiting for so long to start my life. I pray to God to show me the way to a prosper future for me my wife and two babies we have. God is good and God is great and I will keep praying until God hears me and notices me as I cry for help almost everyday.

  4. I am asking God to heal my hip and restore my cartilage and change the behavior of my grandson. I am not going to stop praying until I hear His voice!

  5. a brother in Tulsa OK named Gary Carpenter taught us that the primary reason God said people live lives of defeat and discouragement was ….”they dont seek Me as if I am real”….let tahat sink in for awhile.

      My name is Steve Miller and I just read your prayer request that you sent out. I’m almost 66 years old and I’ve been a follower of Jesus Christ for about 25 years now. I have had a hard time understanding what faith really is, but that has stopped now that Father God has led me to a ministry called The Living Savior Ministries. Thurman Scrivner is the Brother that has helped me to finally understand the Father’s way for us to have the faith that you are desiring and getting your answers to your prayers. If you will go to his website you can order at no cost to you two videos that has opened the eyes of my understanding of how Father God operates HIS Kingdom. One is called “Good Fight of Faith” the other is “Old Covenant Promises Verses New Covenant Promises”. I guarantee if you will get on his website and start listening to his teachings that you will be blessed beyond what you are praying for. Steve Miller

  9. God bless you of this site because my heart desires has been coming through

  10. Praise God!! I was praying one morning with a group of warriors and as I was praying I heard the spirt of the Father say tell someone to PUSH this morning. Pray until something happen. A few days later your site pop up on my phone. What a blessing..

  11. I thank God for this site. I was in prayer this morning and God spoke to me about keep on PUSHING so I look up on the internet and found your site. This site bless me so this was the word I need this morning. I have been praying for a long time now. So this morning I was feeling kind of down because I have not yet seen my Breakthrough. So he gave me the word PUSH. He gave me this word before I have forgot all about it. God is so good I give him all the Praises. So I found your site Hope, Faith, Prayer. And he lead me to the word P.U.S.H means Pray Until Something Happen. By Rex Rouis . This is the word I needed today. May God bless Rev Rouis you and this ministry. Be bless Mrs. Millie
