Have you ever meet someone who really trusts God? When i was in High School,I had a friend who prayed often(and actually i was not a strong believer). She would tell me every week about something she was trusting God to take care of. From Exams, waking up preps to good health. And every week i would see God do something unusual to answer her prayers. For me i just lived day by day for the day.
So, why would God answer my friend’s prayers?
The biggest reason being that she had a relationship with God. She listened and followed God. God had the right to direct her life and she welcomed that. Futher more, she was convinced from what read in the Bible “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous……and his ears are not deaf to hear….2
So why doesn’t God answer Everyones’ Prayers?
This Quiz always comes to my mind. Maybe Our relationship with God is soo weak. Here is an explanation, “Surely arm of the Lord is not too short to save nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God. Your sins have hidden his face from you so that he will not hear….. 3. Everyone is aware of personal sins and failures and that God is aware of it too. We may not know how to ask for forgiveness and come back into a relationship with God so that God will hear us. And this is what i call Foundation. Foundation for God answering our prayers. In my next post i will write about foundation and “unanswered” prayers.
