Prayer Unanswered Does Not Mean Request Denied – Song of Solomon 5:6

“I called him, but he gave me no answer.” Song of Solomon 5:6

Prayer is a funny thing. It seems like sometimes they get answered and sometimes they don’t. Such hit or miss results could make one discouraged that prayer really works. Athiests claim christians are talking to a fairy in their heads that does not exist. I beg to differ. Even science nows proves empirically that people who pray get healed at a higher rate and faster than people who don’t. Science also says that pray often results in miracles. Thank you science, but theory is not bringing forth the real truth: God is sovereign and he can do what he pleases. This means that he has the right to honor or reject a petition. Perhaps his lack of response is not a lack of response at all. Perhaps the Lord delays but not denies to build our faith. The bible says that God rewards those who diligently seek him and come to him believing. When you pray do you believe 100%? Jesus says that we can ask anything, believing and we shall receive it. Perhaps the delay is not a request denied it is a request from God for us to develop in faith. Like the awesome Father he is, he expects his children to exude patience and not be spoiled. God always answers prayers (Psalms 91:15). Don’t be discouraged by a delay. Don’t stop praying. Pray like the woman in Luke 18, without ceasing and without losing faith….then you will see God move on your behalf. Prayer does always change things. God is not a fairy in our head, he created the all things that are made. Just believe.
