Do you think God answers all your prayers?

I am a strong believer of everything happens for the best. Whenever, I ask God for anything, he definitely gives me and there are also times, when he does not give me what I have asked for. But I am never disappointed at this. I know, God will always give me the best I deserve, may be what I have asked for was not the best and the best will come to me in the near future. And believe me, it does happen with me. This is the reason why I strongly believe that EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR THE BEST. I hope now you too start believing in God, the way I do.

My dad wrote a religious article in our local paper one week called "Yes, No, and Wait". His belief, and mine also, is that God answers all of your prayers, but sometimes it's not the answer you were searching for. That's the reason his article was named "Yes, No, and Wait". Sometimes he says yes, sometimes no, and sometimes wait.

That's the way I would respond to this too. God always answers, but sometimes He say yes, sometimes no, sometimes wait. Often times, when He says no, it's because He has a much better plan for us than we could have envisioned.

Thanks for starting such a nice topic.No doubt our Allah Almighty listens and replies to our prayers.The final Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)had clearly told us that all our prays have following three results: 1.That prayer is accepted and same thing given...... 2.Some alternate thing is given 3.That prayer is stored/recorded for the next life.When that man will see the benefits/rewards of his unaccepted prayers,he will wish if none of his prayers were accepted in this world. So we must keep praying to one God Almighty without bringing any mediators in between us.......May Allah Almighty help us in praying Him alone,amen.

awapak, nice to know that you too are keen in such topics. I am also glad that you too know the effects of prayers. The best would be the third one. Once I had posted this message in Yahoo Answers and most of them chose the third option.

i believe that God answers all our prayers...it may be YES, NO, or WAIT...but if we truly believes in Him and put our faith in Him we would know that whatever the answer to our prayers it will be for our good. :)

I've always believed in God, I'm also a catholic. I grew up hearing that everything happens for the best. This is something I've always lived by. If HE doesn't think it's good for us He doesn't give it to us no matter how much we think we should have it. Sometimes it's just not meant to be or it's not our turn yet.

I'd say all answered are answered but not all with a "Yes" by God. I guess God likes it when we pray to Him. But it doesn't mean he would give what you want. We are blessed if what we want happens. But we are still blessed even if what we want didn't happen because God knows what's the best for us. It is His prerogative to allow what we want to happen.

I believe God knows what is best for us. Sometimes we may not see that our prayers are answered already. Our prayers are answered not always the way we want it to be but the way God wants it to be. And His way is always the best way. We just have to realize and acknowledge that.

Im always being positive on this.Though i have pray hard,i need to work hard on what i want.Prayers without working on it is useless.But sometimes miracle do happen. God will answer my prayers but its a matter of time.I'll just continue praying throughout the life for what i want and for the best of my life. InsyaAllah.=)

yeah. im sure that God hears all our prayers, and eventually answers all of it, in the right time. God knows what best for us, and not everything we ask for is good for us. He find ways to give us what we suppose to have, in His own time. we just have to wait for His answer, and dont question Him for not hearing us or answering us. God is good, and He loves us all. He wont allow anything to hurt us, and with that we should believe in Him, have faith to God.

I believe that God answers all of the prayers that are prayed by his children, but I do not believe that every answer that God gives is the same as what we may want. also I do not believe that God will always answer or even hear the prayers of those who do not believe in him. I think that God can but he may or may not. And I do believe that everything in life happens for a reason.
