Praying “through” something might be defined as follows: “Praying your way into full faith; coming to the point of assurance, while still praying, that your prayer has been accepted and heard; and in advance of the event, with confident anticipation, actually becoming aware of having received what you ask.”
Let us remember that no earthly circumstances can hinder the fulfillment of God’s Word. We must look steadfastly at his immutable Word and not at the uncertainty of this ever-changing world. God desires for us to believe his Word without other evidence, and then he is ready to do for us “according to [our] faith” (Matthew 9:29).
When once his Word is past,
When he has said, “I will” [Hebrews 13:5],
The thing will come at last;
God keeps his promise still [2 Corinthians 1:20].
The prayers of the Pentecostal era were prayed with such simple faith that they were like cashing a check.

No one accomplishes so much in so little time as when he or she is praying. And the following thought certainly aligns well with all that the Lord Jesus Christ taught on prayer: If only one believer with total faith rises up, the history of the world will be changed.
Will you be that one to rise up, submitting yourself to the sovereignty and guidance of God our Father?
