Why Are My Prayers Not Answered?

Why are my prayers not answered? I'm not really asking for much. I don't see what might go wrong if I got my prayers answered. Most of them are not even for me. Do I not pray enough? Am I not worthy of any favor from God? I believe that God hears all our prayers but He likes to say no all the time.

never give up praying. you are not wasting your time and believe me you as well as any other human are worthy. God is busy and it is not that he is ignoring you, but bear in mind a lot of things we ask for, whether for ourselves or someone else, we can actually do ourselves. Sounds nasty. No not really. Just think about it for a minute. All of us keep on asking and asking. How many things did we ask in our prayers for, but at the end of the day we have done them ourselves. God will strenghten you in what you ask, but you will do it yourself.

no..God doesn't say no all the time. it was maybe because you doesn't deserved your prayer or maybe God has already a plan for you and it doesn't consist anything of what you had wish for. or maybe because you didn't pray hard enough. God hears your prayer, alright, and he often gives you what you had asked for in time when he sees you are worthy enough.

if you believe, your prayers will be answered if you are trying to get what you ask for in prayer. A very difficult request could not be given, and you are told to wait until the time comes.

No. God answered your prayer. He said, "wait".

Asking God for something is not like asking a Genie to make our wishes come true. Have you counted your blessings lately? or you just counted the things you didnt received? Most of us felt the same way and it seems we are not contented of what we have. Well my friend lets continue praying and believe that God will bless us in His time.

A friend of mine always has this attitude that whenever he ask for something and its not answered, there is always something better to come. In other words God knows best. So if ever something he asks for and it does not come, he does not really feel sad about it but rather say.. thy will be done. I am not asking you to feel the same or think the same. It is entirely up to you. But I do agree with my friend. So now, when I pray and it does not end the way I want it to be, I still thank God and think that I know that God does not want me to have this because he has something better in store for me.

Hi. Don't be so sad. Keep on believing on GOD. Maybe it's just not the time yet for your prayers to be delivered. One thing that you should know that GOD is very fair and equal. There must be a reason in something that happened. Always smile and be happy :
