This is the mystery. This is the key. This is the secret I want to tell you: Your faith will produce, proportionately speaking, no greater than the intensity of your desire.
Have you ever prayed for something over and over and you still didn't get the results you were believing for? Have you prayed the "Prayer of Faith" and every other kind of prayer you knew to pray, and it didn't work?

It makes you wonder, "Well, last time it worked. Why isn't it working this time?" It feels like you are praying a hit-and-miss kind of prayer, and you don't really know why sometimes it works and other times it doesn't.

Well, I have found the missing element in getting your prayers answered.

Since January of 1999, every prayer I've ever prayed, everything I've desired, everything I've asked God for has been manifest in my life...within moments, days and hours. The struggle of faith has ceased in my life.

I'm walking in a level with God that I have never walked in before, and I want to tell you how to receive everything that you have prayed and believed God for.

The first question you have to answer is: How badly do you want it? How badly do you want your healing when the doctors have said it's incurable? How badly do you want that new home when the world has said your credit is ruined?

How badly do you want to be able to pay your bills on time? How badly do you want to get out of debt? How badly do you want your marriage restored and your children serving God? How badly do you want these things?

What is it that puts that reservoir of power to work on the inside of you and causes some of your prayers to be answered and some seem to be ongoing for years?

This is the mystery. This is the key. This is the secret I want to tell you: Your faith will produce, proportionately speaking, no greater than the intensity of your desire.

Did you understand that? If you're just wishing for something, just hoping, just mental assenting that eventually it will happen, one day...que sera, sera... "If it be Thy will" won't get it. There is a missing element in that kind of prayer.

You have to become intense about your needs and desires. You can't just confess: "By His stripes I'm healed," every once in a while and expect a miracle. You have to become extremely focused on getting your total healing and refuse to settle for anything less.

Intense means concentrated in an extreme degree, extreme strength, earnestness, strained, unremitting. I wouldn't call that "casual praying."

Intent means engrossed, absorbed, fixed, focused, attentive, intentional, deliberate, strained and willful.
