why does god never answer my prayers

I asked the Lord to give me a Word for you from the Bible, and I let it flop open. It brought me to Mark chapter 11. the first important thing I notice about the page that I turned to is this scirpture chapter 11 vs
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass ; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. When you pray don t come to God unsure; come to him with an absolute certainty that you re going to get what you just asked. Know it 100% in your heart that what you asked is already yours. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. So to sum those three verses up in conjunction with what I already said come to him in prayer knowing what you shall ask you shall receive, and when your finished asking insure in Jesus name Amen to be the end thus it s asked in the name of the son. If you claim your already doing all of this, you have more doubt in your heart than you yet realize, get rid of it so ye shall get what you desire. example prayer since I just noticed you asking about it. Father in Heaven please give me admittinance into Nursing School, In Jesus name I pray, Amen. and no it doesn t need to be written. just heartfelt and full of certainty.


I usually pray right when I wake up, and right before I go to sleep. Remember to ask him whatever you want in secret But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. Do you ever feel like God isnt answering your prayers? I heard from someone last week who asked How long am I supposed to pray if God continues to ignore me? It might feel like God is ignoring you when He doesnt answer your prayers the way youre hoping. But Scripture offers us insights as to why God might appear to be silent. One verse that Ive found most helpful in my own life when it comes to unanswered prayer is, in which the Psalmist said No good thing will [God] withhold from those who walk uprightly. I find three principles (and loads of encouragement) in this verse for why God might not be answering my prayer or yours. 1. Gods idea of a good thing might be different than yours. You might be praying for a husband, a job youve been hoping for, or to win the lottery. Why would God not give you any or all of the three? Because even though you might feel its good for you to be married, or to be working in a job you like, or to have more money, Gods opinion might differ. Just because something makes us happy doesnt mean its good for us, eternally. And God has our eternal best in mind. SEE ALSO: In Jesus said, If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in give good gifts to those who ask him.


We want our children to be happy, but not at the expense of their health, and therefore we dont give them candy at every meal. We want them to hold down a good job, but we wont do that job for them because learning responsibility and the consequences of a bad decision are more healthy and good for them in the long run. Trust that God, your Heavenly Father, knows what is best for you. And while you may be heartbroken at His no, He may very well be sparing you a bigger heartache down the road. 2. God is waiting for you to be obedient. Scripture exhorts husbands to be considerate of their wives and treat them with respect so that their prayers arent hindered ( ). And says no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. Are you walking uprightly? Is your life not only obedient, but surrendered to Him? If not, God may be withholding or refusing to acknowledge your prayers to get you back into line with His will and purposes. SEE ALSO: 3. It isnt the right time. God has three answers. Yes, no, and wait. Because He can see whats eternally best for us, and He can also see whats coming down the road (and we cant), trust His judgment. Dont second-guess Him. His timing is always better than yours. If you are walking uprightly and what youre asking for is truly a good thing then, according to, God is not withholding after all. It just isnt time. 4. You arent asking in faith. How we pray is just as important as what we pray for.


In If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. Furthermore, says, And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. So ask in faith and without hesitation or doubting. God may be waiting for you to truly believe He can do what you are asking for. 5. God has something better for you than what you are asking for. This is my favorite reason for why God says no but we so often forget to consider it. Because He is good and knows whats eternally best for us, and doesnt want us to settle, God sometimes says no or closes a door because He has something better for us that we havent even thought to ask for. He is One who can do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine ( ). Trust His timing. Trust His no. And trust His idea of what is eternally best for you. He really is a good father.
