Here are some points that will guide you to know the signs God is answering your prayers.

God is faithful and remains true to all His promises. When you make prayer a priority and seek God in earnest and trust Him, He gives answers to your prayers by providing peace and assurance even in perplexing situations.
God knows your needs but He also values your dependence upon Him. The peace that God gives in answer to your prayers will calm your soul and will give you inward satisfaction.

The enemy will seek to harm you, but your constant prayers to God serve as protection against the evil plots of Satan. Remain in communion with God as He gives peace and contentment. He will safely lead you through green pastures under His gentle and caring arms of care and protection.
3. God is answering your prayers through the encouragement of Godly people.

God is also answering your prayers by inspiring other believers to communicate with you. The encouraging words of a friend or a fellow believer are like music to the ears, soothing a confused mind, resulting in increased confidence in God.

There is nothing that you experience that escapes the knowledge of God and it is imperative that you seek God in prayer for your healing and restoration. The prayer of faith can unlock heaven’s storehouse and bring you the healing that you need from all your physical and emotional maladies.

Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you. Mark 11:22-24 KJV
It is not easy to trust in an unseen God and for this reason, maintaining faith on this journey can be daunting at times. The spiritual walk demands faith and without it, it is impossible to trust God and His promises.
