Expectancy and the Bible

What is the reason so few people get things from God? Christians are divided into two different classes: Those who pray who really EXPECT something to happen, and those who just pray and do NOT expect anything to happen. Prayer is first a means unto an end, a connecting link between human needs & divine resources, the cry of the child unto its Father with the expectation that the great Father Heart loves to give to them more than they do to receive. “For if an earthly father knows how to give good gifts to his children, how much more will the Heavenly Father give good things to those that ask Him.” (Luke 11:13)

Do we JUST PRAY, or EXPECT SOMETHING? Does prayer change things for us?
Prayer is not simply a “pious reverie”, that has only a subconscious effect upon the individual, but prayer is an intensely practical thing, as real, as uniform, as genuine a means unto an end as using the telegraph or the telephone, only it is MORE SO. The party at the other end of the line is always there, and He says to us, “Ye have not because ye ask not.”

Is it not a real heartbreak that we, as believers, are actually the cause of unbelief being born in the hearts of others, and make our Heavenly Father a laughing stock in the eyes of the unbeliever, because we do not get answers to prayer, making it seem to those that either our God is not there, is asleep, or has gone on a long journey, as in the case of Elijah, mocking the heathen, when they cried unto their god (1 Kings 18:26).

Some years ago, in Big Cabin, Okalahoma, a father came to me, asking for prayer for his boy, who was very wicked. We prayed a good deal from day to day about the matter, and every time there were requests for prayer, he asked again for the salvation of this boy, and at last one night, the boy came down to the front in response to the invitation and gave his heart to God. After the prayer, I saw this father, who had prayed so long for his boy. Reaching out my hand, I grasped his arm, and said, “Brother, your son is down front, and he has been saved.” And what do you suppose he said? “Surely not. You must be mistaken. Not my boy. It must be some boy by the same name. There is another fellow in this community by the same name.” And it took me about five minutes to persuade that man that it was his boy, and that he had really been saved! That night, the father testified in this wise: “I have been praying for this boy of mine for 20 years, and I was never so surprised in my life as tonight when I found that he had been saved.” Think of 20 years of praying and never expecting God to do anything. There was love of God, and deep confidence in the Bible as being truly the Word of God, but so far as any actual expectancy, there was not a particle. How pitiful, and how it must grieve the heart of the Infinite, for His child to pray on and on and on, but never the least expectancy. We expect God to do the giving and the taking also. We want Him, without the least effort on our part, to come right down and lay it in our laps. This latter He will do, but on His Own conditions, and those conditions are, “Believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.” (Mark 11:24)

God has a right to set down His Own conditions, and what less could He ask than that we honour Him by believing in His Word. His Word never said that without perfection it is impossible to please God.

Some of the most exemplary Christians, in whose lives you could hardly find a flaw, nevertheless rarely get things from God simply because they lack this expectancy–they do not know the least thing about this mighty principle of faith. While on the other hand, some very weak Christians– who oft-repeatedly stumble in time of temptation, frequently receive the most remarkable answers to prayer, because of the simple childlike faith they have, and after every prayer, you could not help but note a genuinely expectant attitude.2
