The holy scriptures teaches much about patience and persistence in prayer, but on the other hand, the Bible also makes us understand that it is possible to get immediate help from God in times of need. In such cases, one doesn't necessarily need to pray and wait for ages for the answer to their prayers.
Before we go into today's prayers proper, I'll like you to understand a few truths concerning getting instant help from God.
So how can one go about making a prayer for immediate help from God, and how does this really work?
I believe that at one point in everyone's life, we happen to find ourselves in a sort of situation that demands God's special intervention and urgently! A good example of such a situation is what we find in a prayer of the Psalmist below:
Psalm 70:1 KJVMake haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord.
When you read further down from verse one of this chapter, you'll discover that David had just come under a serious attack from his enemies. The situation was overwhelming; and for this reason, he needed deliverance and victory over his enemies and he needed that to come from God swiftly.
Psalm 70:2-5 KJVLet them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.  Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.  Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.  But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.
And you know the most interesting part of it all? The Lord understands when we need instant help from Him; He knows when to make us wait and when not to make us wait patiently for His answers. He knows when we need Him to step in immediately and do away with what is troubling us.
If you need immediate help from God, it is likely that you just got in trouble; you found yourself in a dilemma and needed divine help to make an important decision or you need swift deliverance from the oppression of your enemies. Any of these scenarios puts you in a place where you merit immediate help from God. Take a look at what the Lord says concerning getting instant help from Him:
Psalm 50:15 KJVAnd call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
As you can see, God is not against us asking Him for urgent help. He in fact, encourages us to go ahead and ask Him for help in times of trouble. And He has promised to step in during such times to pull us out into safety.
Psalm 46:1-3 KJVGod is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;  Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
How unfathomable is God's love for us! Blessed is the man who has the God of Jacob as His helper!
Psalm 146:5 KJVHappy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God.
I can personally testify to the reality that God never fails to show up in times when we need Him the most. He showed up for Samuel and David and He can show up for you today as well — if you call unto Him. God hasn't changed. He has an unbreakable record of keeping His word. If He promised it in His Word, rest assured, He will do it for you.
2 Samuel 22:7 KJVIn my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.
Psalm 18:6-10,12-14 KJVIn my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.  Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.  There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.  He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.  And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.  At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.  The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.  Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.
We all can get immediate help from God whenever the situation demands it. We just have to be sure we have a few [indispensable] requirements in place.
How To Get Help From God Immediately
Now you understand that God wants us to ask for His help whenever we find ourselves in dispair and in situations that seem impossible to come out of. Remember, nothing is ever too hard for Him.
Psalm 91:14-16 KJVBecause he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.  He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.  With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
But before one rushes into asking for God's immediate help (and in order to not end up disappointed and frustrated), I believe it's needful we follow a few principles.
Ask In Faith, Not In Fear
I understand that sometimes we may find ourselves in situations that make us fear that we are just about to lose it all and get destroyed. But even in times of distress like this, the Lord doesn't expect us to focus on what could easily go wrong if we don't get help immediately.
The key here is to relax and have confidence in God; knowing that He's always there and He has seen what has happened. It's not like He isn't aware even before you thought of asking Him for help. So always remember to remain calm and ask Him for help with faith. Prayers for immediate help from God have to be full of faith and trust in God's power for His swift intervention!
Be Precise In Your Asking
Such a time is not the right time for babbling and making tons of irrelevant requests. Since you need help from God concerning a particular thing, it is best to go straight to the point and tell Him what the issue is all about. Simply hit the nail on the head and avoid unnecessary repetitions. There's no point praying too many prayers. Once you've said what you need help from, just leave the rest to God!
Be Expectant Of God's Immediate Help
After you've prayed in faith, telling God exactly what you want, rest in Him and allow Him to do His job. Be expectant of a miracle from Him because He won't fail to deliver. He always does.
I believe if we apply these few principles in our prayer for immediate help from God, we will always get His response and help even faster than we expect.
