“Thou hast given him his heart’s desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips” Psalm 21:2.
Desire is one of the vital elements of prayer. It is a heartfelt, passionate and boiling hunger to have something.
Desire is a drive that ought to lead you to the place of prayer. It is inappropriate to go to prayer without a desire. There is an obvious difference between a man who is praying with heartfelt desire and another who is praying just by mere wishes.
Jesus said in Mark 11:24, “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them]”. You see, desire is vital to every prayer that attracts answers from God.
To develop desire in prayer, one must premeditate on the thing one intends to communicate to God according to the Word. For example, one who intends to develop desire for health should meditate on healing and health scriptures daily to know God’s will concerning that subject and also to know how important health is to life and fulfillment of purpose.
The key to developing desire is meditation. You will always desire what you constantly meditate upon. You’ll be shocked at the multitudes of people who go to prayer with wishes instead of desires. Many suppose their wishes for deep desires in prayer. You see, wishes are soulish, but desires are hearty and deep-rooted in the spirit. Stop wishing you received something in prayer. Start developing genuine desires for what God has promised you in His Word.
Begin thinking about how glorious your future is and how beautiful God’s thoughts towards you are. Let desires burn in your heart and take them to the Lord in prayer.
Desire gives birth to fervency in prayer and we know that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available which is dynamic in its working. Develop desire in prayer!
