As this topic comes to an end with this article, I want to encourage you to avoid being anxious, after making your requests before God, but to keep exercising a strong faith and a solid belief in the answer you've received from the Lord during prayer. More below!
Reference: 1st John 5:14-15 New International Version (NIV)
"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that He hears us—whatever we ask— we know that we have what we asked of Him."
The next and last segment in the above versified statement is:
We know that we have what we asked of Him.
In other words, our prayers have been answered, and we function with the true knowledge afterwards, thereby positioning ourselves to walk in the description of such favours. Answered prayers usually point out our existence beyond solemn request. Therefore, now that you have finished praying, "You know that you have what you asked of Him." At this point, don't assume that the enemy will sit quiet and applaud you. Evil-speaking may rise up against you; misunderstanding can emerge; opposition may arise; denigration may show up, "driven" by the wind of derision.
Why so? You have become a suitable candidate for the elevating influences of God's grace and favour. Therefore, once you see such happenings, count it all joy, and also, glory in the trials, being confidently certain that they are all working together as formative process that manifests the reality of your answered prayers.
In a nutshell, refuse to be moved, but rest assured, speaking forth the words of power, inspired the Spirit, as well as giving thanks to God, with a heart full of gratitude. Always remember that you have the sufficient support of the power of Christ implied in your answered prayer; therefore, you should rest on Him with joyful exuberance, bearing in mind that the Spirit is ordering your steps, unapologetically.
The Bible says that Abraham staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what God had promised, He was able also to perform (Romans 4:20-21 KJV).
Effective prayer is the most solemn act of engaging divine possibilities, but after praying, the right to praise and worship is overly essential, and believe me, there is no better authority that can be exercised over the schemes and wiles of the enemy, as well as unbelief, than to activate a strong faith through the means of ascribing divine honour and glory to God.
In conclusion, my dearly beloved, this is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us—whatever we ask— we know that we have what we asked of Him. If we know that we have received our answers, let us be strong in faith, giving glory to God and functioning accordingly. Shalom!

Gracious Supreme Father, your answers to my prayers are a deep ocean that rapidly streams out in my world. Your promises are enforced upon my life as an inescapable and omnipresent favour. The repeated instances of your daily benefits and faithfulness keep occurring in my life beyond my control, and I'm grateful that you've sworn to decorate my existence with the actuality of divine possibilities, in Jesus' Name, Amen!
