When you think your prayers aren’t being answered, you tend to get discouraged and cry out, “God, why aren’t you helping me?”
Yet God has promised to answer your prayers: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7). However, sometimes you don’t see the answer for a while, or God may say no because He has a different—and better—plan.
So you are exhorted to ask. But your request must be…
- In faith (Matthew 21:22)
- Without selfish motives (James 4:3)
- According to the will of God (1 John 5: 14-15)
Lord, I confess that I’m not good at waiting for
Your answers to my prayers. But as I wait,
I believe You will build my faith, purify my heart,
and show me Your will. Thank You!
