What Do You Do When Your Prayers Don’t Seem to be Answered?

So, you’ve prayed and prayed and waited and waited but still no manifestation of answered prayer. What do you do? Or rather, what should you do?

First of all, don’t quit! That’s a sure-fire way to never get your answer. Maybe you’ve been praying for a long, long time about a certain situation and things just don’t seem to be getting better. Still, the key is to NOT QUIT! Keep on believing.

Remember, God looks at the heart—not at the results. It’s faith that pleases Him and regardless of whether or not you ever see manifestation of what you’ve been praying about, keep walking by faith and believing for the manifestation. That’s what pleases God and He’s the One who counts. He’s the One we want to please.

Of course, we all want manifestation of answered prayer. That’s the whole reason we’re praying about it in the first place. But many times, our time table is not set by us. We always want instant everything and rightly so. But it doesn’t always happen that way. That’s where our faith has to be strong and fixed on God’s promises. His Word always works in spite of what we think.

Standing on God’s Word is the best place to be and the only way to receive the answer to our prayers. He said His Word would not return to Him void without accomplishing what He sent it forth to do. Our part is to believe and receive and continue standing until we see manifestation of what we have prayed about.

Unfortunately, many people blame God when they don’t get the answer they want. It’s never God Who’s at fault. His Word always works but we have to work the Word. We have our part to do. God won’t do our part and we can’t do His part. But, working together, we can get the job done!

Keeping walking by faith and see the glory of God right before your eyes!

1 Samuel 16:7b (KJV)  … for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.

2 Corinthians 5:7 (KJV) 7  (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

Isaiah 55:11 (KJV) 11  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Numbers 23:19 (KJV) 19  God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
2 Corinthians 1:20 (KJV) 20  For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
