Does God Really Answer Prayers? by alwells(m): 4:28am On Aug 20, 2017
This is a question I have been asking myself for a very long time and yet I have failed to really find an answer to it. so I ask you who really knows this God and who reads his book, DOES GOD REALLY ANSWER PRAYERS? if Yes, How Does one pray to him for him to really answer. Countless Times have I prayed and it just seems they fall on deaf ears.

I want to know the secret if there's any

No!

It's a mental thingy!


If your pray to a bottle, you will always attribute your positivity to it and doubt potency during chaos.

What will be will always be.

People pray before aircraft crash!

sin is 0ne of the hindrances to prayer and of course faith is an important substance needed for all we hope for. Do not pay according to your flesh but pray in spirit.

I pray having so much faith and trust that he will answer, sometimes I even add fasting to it. After all these I still fail to see positive result

Read the book you refer to as his book. The answer is there.

I wonder how you have been praying without reading his book. Little wonder u never get answer.


Alternatively, visit the site; http://firesprings.com

In addition go to you tube to read and view real life testimonies of people who are still alive whom you can contact to clear your doubt!

I wish you well!

God answer prayers if you believe and have faith, but sin can be a hindrance to prayers. If you want a positive result pray fervently, ensure that period you are clean I mean sin and God will answer. Remember God's way is different from man's his thought towards you is not of Evil

No.

We are mostly personally responsible for whatever fortunes and misfortunes we encounter in life..

Besides that, Nature and chance deal randomly with us all sad

Yes he does
How will he answer,when you have doubt in your mind?
If you want him to answer, lay your complains to him and forget it totally, let it never be an issue to you...
He might not answer now,it mighty be delayed But a thousand years is just like a day in his eyes...
And check your life, The prayer of a sinner is an abomination to him.

Sometimes i just channel God's delay (to me) as a blessing, because i know he is always on time kiss kiss

By my personal experience and convictions, Yes he Does.

I have won a scholarship that it was beyond my making cos, my result was the runner up to the best guy, yet I was picked ahead, based on reasons I can't explain.

I have written exams in dreams which was the same exact questions in real life the next day.

Just to mention a few...


His answers can come speedily, it can come with time just a little patience and he can decide to overlook that request of ours maybe it's not best to our interest.

In all God never comes late to any situation.

God created us and knows infinitely more than we know. He knows what is best for us, and what would not be good for us. If you have children, when they were very small, sometimes they asked for things that would not be good for them, or would harm them. For good reasons sometimes parents do not always give their children what they ask for, when they ask for it. Parents give them what is best for them.

5 By faith Enoch was taken up so that he did not see death. He could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who approaches Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. 7 By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in godly fear built an ark to save his family. By faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.…

Summary OP, no atom of faith in you.

Prayers is just mumbling and talking to one's self.
Answered prayers is as a result of two things.
One is luck, But this rarely happens. we are lucky at times our wish comes to pass, When it does we assume it's the prayers.
Two, actually we work it out ourselves, eg, we read we pass, we take drug we get healed. Etc At the end they attribute it to one god like that that he answered their prayers. When it doesn't work they blame it on one Satan.
If prayers actually work, Nigeria would have been a better place, but we fail to know that those better countries actually labored to make their country a better place. Everything we wait on God to do it. Keep on waiting

Re: Does God Really Answer Prayers? by Greatomotoy: 6:48am On Aug 20, 2017
yes he does.
In the few years i have known him, i have this mindset when asking things from him that is 'if u answer fine if u dont, it's ok'.
Many people (including me at a point and many atheists) have back slided because when we needed God to answer he just disappoint.
Then i would be depressed, hopeless until God began revealing reasons why he can't allow me get some of my request and i must say 'HE CARES And KNOWS HOW tO ANSWER EVEN BEFORE U ASK'
Next time u pray, do so from ur heart( i sometime pray tru my heart without uttering a word) with faith, WAIT FOR HIS REPLY(imagine u ask me for airtime and didnt wait for my reply and just believe i would give it) and if the answer delays ask him:
Never doubt HIM(he hates it) and LIVE a HOLY LIFE.
GOD BLESS U

For me myself I can't count the number of times my prayers have been answered, just this year alone all the plans I prayed to God about this year before I made them all a of them has come to pass, just that alone shows me that the God I serve. answers prayers.You just need to pray in faith n keep on believing God will
l answer, your believe will cause the difference.
