There are a few points that need to be clarified.

1. Are you a subscriber to the Prosperity Faith movement? Also called the 'Name It and Claim It' mentality?

2. Do you mean by receiving unfailingly, that whatever you ask God for, He will give it to you?

If you are a Word Faith follower, then don't expect anything from God because just by the very nature of this movement, it makes God into a tool and a vehicle to get what you want. It finds many of its roots in the New Age movement and it's source is selfishness. God will never be a means to anyone's ends and you will continue to slam your head up against stopped up heavenly ears as long as you treat God like a genie.

The Bible tells us that if we ask God anything according to His will, He hears us, and if He hears us, then we have that which we asked for. Are you praying according to His will? Now the different Word Faith preachers truly believe that if they want it, then God wants it to. This is wrong. God's will and ours very rarely cross. We want what is selfish and he wants glory. If you pray according to His will, then He will give you what you ask. Asking for money, a mansion, a Lamborghini...etc., will not get you anwhere just like asking God to make you stick to walls like Spiderman. It's foolishness and selfish and God will never answer your prayers.

Ask God with humility and never open your mouth unless you preface your prayers with genuine worship and "If it be Your will', then God will consider your request.

Remember Christ in the Garden? 'If it be Your will, let this Cup pass from Me--Nevertheless, let Your will be done'.

If it was good enough for Him, well....
