Does God Really Answer Every Prayer?
“Then call, and I will answer …” Job 13:22
I think most of us would readily say that we believe God answers prayer. It’s something we’ve grown up hearing in Sunday school classes, from the pulpit, and in small groups. However, if we are being completely honest with ourselves, do we really believe God answers every single prayer? I’ve prayed prayers before that seem to come back void. Where was God’s answer then?
Sometimes, God chooses to answer our prayer with a soft, but firm, “no.” This answer is never what we hope for when we are asking God to do something like change our circumstances, but it does remind us that God knows best. Sometimes God does not change our circumstances because He wants our circumstances to change us.
When God answers our prayer with “wait,” it’s easy to view it as a negative thing. It’s important to keep in mind though that God’s timing is best, and every day He is orchestrating His perfect plan in our lives (Jeremiah 29:11). When He tells us to wait and holds us in our current circumstances, rest in the fact that God is in control.
When God answers our pleas with a “yes” we can rejoice in the fact that God’s plan for our lives aligned with our requests. Remember all the times God answers with a “yes” so that when He answers other prayers with a “no” or a “wait,” you will feel encouraged and not discouraged.
The truth is that if you are a born-again believer, God does answer every prayer!
