You have asked the Father for something in the name of Jesus.  Now, you are to act as though you have it.  You are
talk as though you possess it.  You are never to go back on your prayer.  If you have asked someone to pray for you,
act as though you possess the thing for which that person prayed.  You are never to allow yourself to speak as though
you don’t have it.  You are to know that you have it.  You are to thank the Father as though you have it in your
possession right now.

Faith is always thankful, always full of praise.

You have asked in Jesus’ name, and you are heard.  You cannot see the answer, but you know that it has come to
pass.  You know that your prayer is answered.  If there is such a thing as a bookkeeper in heaven, the person who is in
charge of that department has put your request down and, opposite it, has written “Answered.”

Now, what are you going to do about it?  You are going to praise God for it.  You are going to thank Him for it.  

Likewise, any unbelief in your own prayer, or the prayers of anyone else, can annul that prayer; it can annul faith.

    Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanks giving let your requests be made
    known unto God.  (Philippians 4:6)

This verse is worthy of our consideration.  Notice that we are never to be anxious.  After you have prayed, be certain
that your prayer was made to the Father in the name of Jesus and that it rested squarely upon His own written Word.  
Your prayer must be answered unless you annul it yourself, unless you make it void, by your unwise talk of doubts.

We are to pray with thanksgiving.  Why shouldn’t you be thankful?  Did you pray? Yes.  Did God hear you? Yes.  He
heard you if your prayer was according to His will, and we know that He hears us when we pray like that.  Thus, what am
I going to do about it?  I am going to rejoice, waiting for the fulfillment of my prayer.  It is as though I owed a bill that I
couldn’t pay, and someone else paid it and said, “Here is a receipt for that bill.”

Then, I ask again, “Did you pay?” “Yes,” he says.  “You have the receipt, don’t you?”  And my heart grows full of
laughter because it is done.

Isn’t the Father’s word as good as that receipt?  Isn’t the Father’s word as good as that man’s word?  Of course, it is.  
Then, cast all your anxiety on God because He has answered you.

You see, prayer is done according to His will.  You are laboring together with Him.  You have made your request known
to Him, and it is His work to fulfill it.  You are His partner in this work.  You have done your part.  Now,
“the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding”
(Philippians 4:7) fills your heart because you know your prayer is answered.  You can
go about your business with a heart full of thanksgiving.  You can say, “Father, I want to thank You because You have
heard my prayer and because You have answered it.”

The enemy will say, “You have no evidence.”

You will reply, “I have evidence.  I have the Word of God.”

The adversary will say, “But you don’t feel it, do you?”

And you will say, “I don’t need feeling.  I have the Word.  I don’t need any evidence of the senses to prove that my
Father’s word is true.  No word from God is void of fulfillment.

    So shall my word be the goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that
    which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  (Isaiah 55:11)
