How to Pray and Get Your Prayers Answered!
So many people pray and do not get their prayers answered. Why? They are not following God’s and Jesus’ plan to get prayers answered.
As a child we prayed… “Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep!” When we were a child, we prayed like a child and I am sure that God listened and acted on those prayers. Now as adults He expects us to act like adults and as adults we should learn what God expects of us.
We go to school for knowledge of how to succeed in the world. Some of us have spent tens of thousands of dollars going to college, so we will be experts in our chosen fields. How many of us has studied the Bible?
Here is what Good says: Proverb 4:20-27
My son, pay attention to what I say;
turn your ear to my words.
21 Do not let them out of your sight,
keep them within your heart;
22 for they are life to those who find them
and health to one’s whole body.
23 Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.
24 Keep your mouth free of perversity;
keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
25 Let your eyes look straight ahead;
fix your gaze directly before you.
26 Give careful thought to the paths for your feet
and be steadfast in all your ways.
27 Do not turn to the right or the left;
keep your foot from evil.
If you want to be a success in any field, you must know the rules of the game! A lot of people will say the Lord’s Prayer and think that was perfect, so they will pray that prayer. It is a nice prayer but you are not taking advantage of all that Jesus has given you. It was in the Old Testament. You have heard the saying, to rightly divide the Word. You divide it as Old and New Testament. You see Jesus walked the earth in the Old Testament. At that time we were under the Law of Moses. When Jesus rose from the dead, a new era was born. Jesus foretold in His teaching about what we would have and how we should live after His Resurrection. The Resurrection was the beginning of the New Testament.
Because of Jesus, today it is a whole new ball game. We are under Grace, not Works; He paid for our sins and if we have accepted Christ, His Spirit came into our body, joined with our spirit. He gave us many gifts at that time. We are to use these Gifts in our everyday life and also in our prayer life. We no longer pray and hope. We pray with the power of Jesus Christ and believe.
However a gift is no good, unless we know what the gift is and where it is and how to get it. So this will take studying on your part to find all the gifts that Jesus has given you, like Peace, Prosperity, Faith, Long Life and His Power, to name a few. We are going to learn How To Pray And Get Results! So we will be using His Power and we will see how to get that Power in our lives!
We are going to take a prayer that I have prayed hundreds of times as a guide and break it down. I pray a version of this prayer a lot because 90% of the people who want prayer from 2Jesus.org are sick. In the last two years about 80% of these prayers have been about Venereal Diseases. We have a worldwide epidemic of Herpes. The Doctors say that it cannot be cured, that you will die with it! Jesus says “Come To Me And Live.” We have a very high rate of healing on 2Jesus. Why? Because we involve Jesus and His Words in our prayers! There is Power in His Words!
So we will use Herpes as our disease, you can substitute Cancer or any other disease and get the same result. Heart problems are different and are prayed for differently as they are usually brought on by the way we live. So we need a reconstructive healing. Our hearts need to be renewed!
So we will pray this prayer now and study it as we go through it. First be specific, say who you are and what you are praying about and speak the words aloud. There is power in speaking. If you remember God created the world by speaking it into existence!
Dear Father, with the power and authority that Jesus has given me
I am identifying that I am a Christian, with the power and authority that Jesus has given me. You are not going to get very far in any prayer where you have to cast something evil out without telling the devil who you are. Jesus said, “In My Name!” In the Name of Jesus! He authorized us. He gave us His Name as the authority. The power is in the Name. The authority is in the Name. He gave us the Name that is above every name. He gave us the Name that is recognized in three worlds—the Name that has authority in heaven, on earth, and under the earth. Angels, men, and demons have to bow at that Name—and that Name belongs to us. As Christians we are authorized to use that Name. John 14:13-14 John 16:23-24
I ask that the Holy Spirit comes upon Steven, as we pray.
I just ask Jesus to fill Steven’s body with the Holy Spirit so that he will feel the power of the prayer as he reads it! I just made Jesus my partner in the prayer. John 14:14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
I touch Steven, now and bind the Herpes virus in his body. I command it to leave Steven's body and to die.
Jesus has given me the power to Bind and to Loose… Matthew 16:19 Jesus said, I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven….. And then with Jesus power I cast the Herpes out and commanded it to die!
Jesus, restore Steven's body and make it whole and healthy again, I wash him clean with your blood and by your stripes he is healed. Thank you Jesus!
I just asked that Steven’s body be restored to health, plus I washed him in the Blood of Jesus to cleanse his mind of all evil. Then claimed the healing scripture where Jesus promised us His healing. 2 Peter 2:24
The scripture below is the scripture I use when I pray for anyone or myself. It is my guarantee that Jesus has heard me and that He has given me what I asked for. If you do not believe this scripture you will never get your prayer answered! It is Mark 11:24
Jesus you said in Mark 11:24 that when we pray to believe that we have received and we shall have what we prayed for. Jesus, Steven and I believe your words and we believe that he is now healed. Thank you Jesus. Thank you Father, you’re loving children, Steven and Pastor Ferd. Amen
The very next thing that I do is to pray for Steven in the Spirit. That will be Jesus praying through me in His Spirit. Romans 8:26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us….. Thank you Jesus! If you do not have this gift yet….Desire it!
You see I might not know everything about Steven, there might be something that I missed in the above prayer that would help his healing. So I let Jesus pray through me to fix anything that I may have left out, as Jesus knows everything about Steven.
Now look at the prayer again put together…..

Steven, I will now pray for you in the Spirit. That will be Jesus praying through me praying the perfect prayer for you to the Father.
That is my standby prayer for diseases. Some cases are different than others, so I adjust to fit their special needs. I also have a healing book that I send when they just do not understand it helps them to study and see it in print. Also I have healing lessons on Audio on the 2jesus site, that a lot of people use and get a lot of good out of hearing the Word.
Below is a letter from a woman in the Canal Zone who committed adultery and got Herpes. Her husband forgave her and so did Jesus! She was having trouble believing so I sent her my book on Divine Healing; you can see how it helped!
Praise for “Jesus Guide to Healing Book” delivered to the Canal Zone.
Nice things were said about me; however Jesus was the one who really wrote the book. All praise goes to Jesus!
Thanks a lot brother Ferd, this word has come at just the right time.
Today I was a little down. I was trying to think, why my healing has taken so much time. So when my hubby came back, he noticed I was down low I just wanted to be alone. I was so happy to see him but I couldn't just help but feel the way I did. But I thank God that he has used you, in your book, to tell me just the right words. God bless you and your family...Compliments of the C-zone
Each page I flip is interesting just reading about where you prayed for Mike, the guy with terminal brain cancer. Then you went to Alaska and while there God told you He had healed him...wow...Our God is so powerful. Right now I feel lifted up in my Spirit. "Though I live in this world the standards and rules of the World don’t apply to me. I am from above.”
About the Book, every sentence has something great in it. I now know what kept me all this while from seeing the manifestation was doubt, you put it rightly fear...worry... I would believe brother that I was healed, even for a whole week and all of a sudden as I am working in the hospital I see a patient ill, HIV stage 4. Then suddenly fear gets a hold of me, I begin to think, I too will end up like that. Or say when handling a patient with TB, sometimes I would be convinced it’s impossible for TB to get to me. While other times; I would be so scared. Even to attend to a patient, because of fear of getting it.
I would have days when I would wake up so sad in my spirit and start telling God why don’t you just take me...All these instances show fear and doubt. I know that's what’s delayed my healing. But I praise the living God my spirit has now been strengthened. I know how to handle it better now that I have been enlightened... Doubt has ears, it can listen, it’s a spirit.. I thank God sir, I am grateful for your knowledge.
Wow amazing. Brother Ferd, you are 84? I have learned a lot of things from you sir and am so grateful. What I've learned no amount of money can buy it. May God bless you and your family. May he continue giving you more long and healthy years...what an honor to know people with so much wisdom and faith. Praise God
This report came a few weeks later…….
I am writing to inform you that I went to the Doctor and ordered my HIV test and I was so HAPPY! Praise my God, that test was perfect and NEGITIVE! I know my God will not put me to shame nor will He be unfaithful to His promises. I know he loves me and cares for me even though I didn’t keep his commands.( She committed adultery and got herpes, her husband forgave her and so did Jesus!) But now I know He is Lord of my life and I will live a pleasing life to Him, and I will love Him, honor Him, and worship Him all the days of my life.
Thank you Brother Ferd, your Sister in Christ, from the Canal Zone.
So if you keep in the Word, pray using the Word and believe His Word. God and His Son Jesus will always be faithful in making His Words come alive in your life,
Thank you for coming 2Jesus, Pastor Ferd
