Prayers Obedient Believer’s Should Pray


Deuteronomy 28:2 “And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.”

There is a benefit to living right, and that benefit is that God allows the believer to pray specific prayers. If the only reason that you should be right with God is so that God answers these types of prayers, it is worth your obedience. God wants to reward the believer who obeys Him, so He promises them that He will answer eight types of prayers. The verse above shows that God will give eight blessings to the believer who obeys Him, which means if you obey Him, there are eight prayers that you have a right to pray. Let me show you these prayers.

First, ask God to bless you. Verse 3 says, “Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.” God would be thrilled to answer the prayer of blessing from the believer obeying Him because it would further His cause. If you are living an obedient life to the LORD, ask Him to bless you because His blessing on your life furthers His cause.

Second, ask God to bless the work of your hands. Verse 4 shows that God will bless your works if you serve Him. If you obey God, your works being blessed means that God is simply blessing His work in your life because your works will be for God.

Third, ask God to give you victory over your enemies. In verse 7, God makes it clear that He will give you victory over your enemies if you obey Him; therefore, to ask God to give you victory over your enemies is God’s will. Your enemy doesn't have to be a person. Your enemy could be health, financial pressure, lacking in an area that you need God to come through, but whatever your enemy is, God wants to give you victory if you are obeying Him, so ask Him for victory.

Fourth, ask God to bless your investments. In verse 8, God promises to bless your “storehouses.” Never be afraid to ask God to bless what you invest in if you are obeying Him because likely you will use your investments to invest in God if you are obeying Him.

Fifth, ask God to establish you. In verse 9, God promises to establish those who serve Him. Being established means you become consistent in blessings. If you are serving the LORD, you have a right to ask God to establish what you are doing so that you can better serve Him. 

Sixth, ask God to give you abundance. In verse 11, God promises to make those who obey Him “plenteous.” Never be afraid to ask God for growth. God’s ability to give you plenteously shows His power and blessing to the world that there are blessings in obeying Him.

Seventh, ask God to do the miraculous. In verse 12, God promises to open “his good treasure.” God wants to do the miraculous, but He especially wants to do it through those who obey Him; so, ask Him to do the miraculous through your life.

Eighth, ask God to make you the head. In verse 13, God promises to make those who obey Him “the head.” It is time that those doing right become the leaders, so don't be afraid to ask Him to make you a leader because it will further His cause.
