1.      BE SPECIFIC: Be clear about what you want. God may be waiting for you to ask for what you want.


2.      EXPECT AN ANSWER: God answers all prayers. It’s easier to hear and see God’s answers when you are expecting and trusting that you will hear from Him. Learn to go within for guidance and answers.


3.      LISTEN CAREFULLY: God may answer you in a piece of music, a song, a book, another person. If you are busy running around, you may be missing God’s answered prayer.


4.      BELIEVE: You must “see” your prayer answered on the inside before it manifests on the outside. Change your thinking and your life will change. Practice affirmations of a daily basis.


5.      BE PATIENT: God’s timing is perfect. You must learn to wait for His perfect plan for your life. Trust the answers will come.


6.      STAY GRATEFUL: Gratitude is the key to make things manifest quickly. Don’t focus on what’s missing, but focus on what you already have.


7.      HAVE FAITH: Your prayers are being answered. Faith is believing when you can not see. Be open and receptive.


8.      FORGIVE: Do a daily inventory, let go of resentments and judgements. Holding onto resentments blocks the energy flow and prevents or slows your ability to manifest your desires.


9.      SHOW UP: Pray, meditate and visualize daily. When you “show up” God “shows up” and the “HOW” shows up in the perfect time and perfect way. Pay attention to your dreams. Journaling is a form of prayer.


10.  INTERNAL HOUSE CLEANING: Be honest with yourself and ask yourself – What old thoughts and beliefs are blocking communication with God? Fasting or cleansing your diet will help detoxify your mind, body and spirit.

  4. I need a job, I lost my job in December of 2010. I really want to get a job helping people or animals. I volunteer at the local animal shelter right now and I LOVE IT. But there are no jobs, so I volunteer. There is also a little dog there I have fell in love with. I really want to give this little dog a home, Cynderella is her name and she is just the sweetest little dog. I don’t think God is listening to me. WHY would he not help me? Thank you for your time. God bless you.

  7. Hey.
    This is good advise, I know from person experience.
    One thing you can you can add to make the list even better than it allready is, give God something to work with…. sometimes we need to take a bit of action on our part.

    Thanks for the list!
