God answers .......

God always answers our prayers
But sometimes the answer is ...NO...!

We often pray and asked from God. Sometimes our prayers are answered and we get what we wanted.
There have been many times when we prayed... but nothing happened.
Different school of thoughts have given few different ideas.

- It takes time for our prayers to be answered and that we have to continue praying. We should not give up, instead we have to pray harder.

- A lot of times we expect our prayers to be answered with what we thought is what we want. But God the Almighty knows best. He gives you what is best for you.

- You may not get what you prayed for... but you get something better.

- There are times too when you are burdened with one problem on top of another and another. God is testing you ! He will not let you face any problems if you cannot handle it. By solving the problems, it makes you a better and stronger person.

Sometimes I do wonder... all of my unanswered prayers...
- Actually the answer is ... NO ...

Not everything is answered by the word "YES"

Hi shionge,
I like the positive attitude.

Quite an uplifting post, I have to agree... and yes, it's always helpful to know that God has a bigger picture and, hence, knows what's best for us and the 'no' is His way - like a good Father He is - to develop character in us.

Hi ashish,
For sure God knows what best to give us. Thus I need to strive harder and take what comes into my life with positive thinking.

Why do you try to justify it? Deeply think about this question.

God doesn't answer your questions not because the answer is "no" but rather because there "is no answer".

If you pray for something and it becomes true, it's not because a God made it true but because you wanted it so bad you worked really hard for it to become true and things turned the way you hoped.

Very interesting thought!!
I believe that we should always pray for the best no matter what we want, because no matter what, God always knows best and answers accordingly, even if we think at the time of getting the answer is not up to our liking! We realize later on that God has chosen the best for us! Acceptance of fate is the key to happiness!
Prayers should always be said, requests from God should always be submitted, this is the part that we all should do, and it is up to God to answer them as he sees fit!

hi anon,
You have got a good point there. When there is no answer, we take it as a NO.Most of the time, we expect miracles at lightning speed. Everything takes time and we need to exercise patience.

hi summer,
Yes, God always has better things for us all. Sometimes what we want is not what is best for us. We should just enjoy what we have today and hope for better things tomorrow.
