Why Are My Prayers Not Answered?? by mhizsuzzy(f): 6:37am On Jul 26
What's wrong with me? My prayers are not answered. Have asked that question? You are welcomed to my crib. Let's have a friendly chitchat

Good morning and a beautiful Sunday to you...

I prayed and didn't get answers. It got me thinking, why do some people get answers and I don't. Maybe, I am doing it the wrong way or am I doing it with an unclear conscience or am I in doubt? what's wrong?
I know you have asked that kind of question. I pray God answers you through me. Amen

Let's pray
Father in heaven, we thank you for your gift of Jesus, the gift of this new day and your love which you shed in our hearts. We thank you for all you have done and all you will do. We come before you in great humility and submit our will to your kingship. Open our hearts and mind sto receive you. Speak to us through your words in ways we can understand and let your spirit in us reveal you to us.
We ask you in Jesus name. Amen


Causes of unanswered prayers:
1) You may have been asking amiss and with wrong motives
(James 4:3) KJV
What are your intentions? Are they right? God is not a man that he can be deceived he searches your hearts and knows your genuine intentions. Are you praying so that people will say: haa! she is a prayer warrior (like the Pharisee) or are you really seeking a connection and pouring out to God. Are you praying to boast to men that your prayers get answered?
Check your motives dear loved one.
Soln: Keep asking God to teach you his ways that you may die to pride or showmanship. Consciously rebuke those thoughts when they come. You have the power of resurrection in you.
2) He will answer you.

Come confidently to his throne of mercy and grace.
Some come with "let me try if this thing will even work" Hmmm...(I did that before)
God is more willing to answer you than you are to ask. (Jeremiah 29:12)
He loves you and will hear you when you cry out (Psalm 106:43-45)
So come as you are

3) The prayer of a righteous man:
(James 5:16)

Sincerely ask God for forgiveness for the sins you have done. But wait, you can't use God. You can't apologize just to get what you want from him and turn back to your evil ways.
Life in Christ is the best. Choose it.

4) Ask the holy spirit to help u:
(Romans 8:26)
He is the helper. He will help you even when words can't express how you feel (isn't he a good God that even provides help when our strengths have failed)

5) Ask in Jesus name:
John 15:16:
The father will give you whatever you ask of him in my name. Jesus is the key to get to the father. (Note this it is important)

6) Pray his word:
Give God his words and the promise of his words will be your portion (Don't forget to do it with faith). Pray the bible. As you study the word daily if any part speaks to you, use it as a prayer. It is his word and you know it is important to him. Write it done and make prophetic declarations about them

7)Thank God
Gratitude is very important. Even if you didn't see the manifestation yet (Philippians 4:6)
It is pride that makes you not to thank him (2 Chronicles 32:25)
Thank him cos he has already done it for you.

cool Submit it to his will:
Patience is important. Wait! it may not be time yet. But whilecyou wait what should you do?...Thanksgiving cos he has done it already.

Some prayers need you to call those faithful to help you so that their faith can help your faith (Matt 18:19) (James 5:14-15)

Faith is the bedrock. No prayer works without faith. Forget about the problem. It is difficult I know but you have to try dear loved one.
Devil will bring doubt, confess the assurance of the answered prayer. Dance when ever you remember it. Cos it has been answered.
You can also make a covenant with God (some kind of petitions need this) Let's the spirit lead you in this..he will speak to you about it and how to go about it. You are blessed
Those changed my prayer life. I am glad to share them with you, beloved.

So Let's go and do it the right way.
Your faithfully
Love

If you got questions or you need advice,then talk to God 'cause he's the only one that listen even when you think he isn't....don't pray only when in trouble..pray everyday and give thanks to God in every situation.

Your prayers may not be answered because prayers are useless and are mere wishes. If wishes were horses, beggars will ride.

Homo Sapiens III 15:12 sacrifices are useless and prayers are for the weak. But he who wants to be great will use his head to think deep, be his own god and do good to his fellow

Prayers are mere wishes to the unbeliever and useless to the unenlightened.

But to those of faith, prayer is more than just mumbling sentences in the believe that an omniscient earpiece is plugged to your desires. Prayer is voicing out your heart to someone you trust knows the best for you, and are submitting that whatever, the outcome, he knows best.

Prayer does not force God's hands. Faith does. Prayer is not an exam set for God that you have to invigilate his progress.

If you like use this your prayer guide , ten times everyday without the necessary efforts it's futile ....
Muslims , Buddhist , Judaist don't use this style yet their prayers are answered ....is it babangida answering the prayers ??
A young graduate seeking employment would rather pray on the mountain 6 times a week , when his mates are on adeola odeku with their CV's...
A poor man would sit in his dirty bed bug infested chair singing " carry me dey go baba carry me dey go " praying for wealth , when his mates are hustling in the streets...
Amaka is attending seminars , fellowship and vigils praying for a life partner , when her mates are hooking up and mingling with proper people at proper venues...
Chinedu would rather attend vigils and revivals with his wife praying for the fruit of the womb ,when they are supposed to be shagging each other ....
These illustrations are the real reasons some think their prayers aren't answered....
It is better not to believe in miracles or prayer , and put in hard work ...than to believe in prayer and miracles more than hard work...

Las Las, prayers are useless. Read the book of Otem Erectus 226 to see how those entities you pray to regard your prayers whenever you pray.

Otem Erectus 226: 16, 17

16. and Eubius said, what shall happen to the history of Krishtanite which I have written? I shall rather protect it, or else I shall be found the greatest liar in history. and Mirza and Moloch and Eshu and many other gods said, the fun of the earth shall be lost when they do not call upon our names anymore.
17. and their continual weeping to the gods, being fun to us, shall be a thing of the past. No, we shall not allow this. Now while they spoke, the gods who wanted science and development in the world came and said, are you ready for the battle? and they said, we are ready.

Perhaps what you intended to say was 'why God doesn't grant your request'.

Well whichever. Like my own great book would say, 'The only time Nature/God answers your prayers or requests is when you answer them first'.

what is prayer?
Prayer is simply doing what you are suppose to do to get that thing you want .
Prayer is not that vocal voice you make to God for you to get that thing you want to get miraculously

We don't all pray to the same "entities", maybe you should take your faith away from comical gods and find your own path to the one your soul would find as the true God.

More considerations for effective prayer can be found in the below excerpt.
Finallydead:


Friend, it is unfortunate that prayer is taught today in Christendom to be some magical, instant, genie-in-the-bottle, formula because this is not what the Lord taught.
First, understand before you begin praying that there are spiritual laws in place which like natural laws(e.g. gravity) can never be broken. Also understand that no matter your sin, if you have acknowledged and repented, you are forgiven freely in Christ(Eph1:7). In fact, God also gives you power through His cross to overcome any struggles you have with sin. But the big task in prayer is your request getting to you through all spiritual protocol after its released by God to you.
As long as what you ask is in line with God's will, you should know that it's not up to God to release your answer because He already has(Eph1:3) but only in the spirit(heavens) which is His jurisdiction(Ps115:16).
The onus is then on men whose jurisdiction is the earth(Ps115:16) to persevere through all delays of Satanic forces(Eph6:12) to resist the manifestation of what God has provided in the spirit hence(Eph6:18, Lk18:1-8, Mt6:10)
Note that the hand of God can never be seen on earth except men persevere through all the resistances of Satanic forces like Daniel did(Dan10:12-14) because the earth has been given to men. Had Daniel not persevered, the prince of Persia would have hindered the manifestation of his prayer God already heard from the first day he prayed(v12).

And how do we know when we can stop praying and our victory has come? Either when we see the answer manifest or when we no longer have an iota of doubt in our hearts about the matter(Mk11:23, note shalt not doubt in his heart. Also, Jam1:6), whichever comes first.
As long as there is still any little doubt in your heart, it means Satanic forces are still resisting your answer, so keep on praying until there is no single doubt again.
This takes a lot of patience and diligence in prayer, so buckle down, if you're really serious for your answer. You just have to keep at it until the answer comes.

PS: Beware of anyone trying to direct you to any man or woman or church so you don't complicate your challenges. Always take everything to God Himself who died for you so you may freely access Him.

You're yet to comprehend any part of my submission. People like me respect other people's belief in whatever gods make then feel guided.

You can't really hit people like me out of track to contradict ourselves. What my statement says be say "gods many, we nor need to believe the same one, if na the one wey dey laugh you you wan believe, then enjoy" but sofar say yout mind carry am.

Gods time Is the best
Re: Why Are My Prayers Not Answered?? by hopefulLandlord: 10:09am On Jul 26
You would have the same success praying to a milk jug as you do praying to god -- the milk jug sometimes answers your
prayer the way you want to, sometimes not and sometimes the answer is delayed. See the problem here? If things turn out the way you want them to, you say it was because you prayed. If not, it's because god knows what's best and you didn't pray for the right thing. Or, if it happens 10 years later you say god answered your prayer , it was just delayed. This is nonsense. You would have the exact same effect doing nothing.

The Prayers of a Sinner is an Abomination to God..
This is Major Hinderance to our Prayer.
Isaiah 59:1-3

1 Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:
2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.

Another one is Doubt and Unbelief..

Many of us pray but we don't even Believe the Prayers we pray. So we end up just Muttering words.

Mark 11:24
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Faith and Knowledge

These are Important ingredients in our walk with GOD. God is a Spirit! Non of us have seen Him. To have Access to Him you Need Faith!

In the Kingdom of God, we don't live by what we see, we live by Thus says the Lord. We Believe God not minding what is Happening around is.

Infact, if you wanna see GOD Practically in Action, Supply Him Great FAITH!


Unforgivness, Malice, Anger

Silent killers of Answers! Yes that Man or Woman hurt u soooo Much! But you need to Forgive to move ahead! Unforgivness is an Obstruction.. No Matter your Years of Salvation, or level of Prayer! If you don't Forgive , you are Wasting your time.

Malice and anger should be cleared away.

Trust

Trusting God is a Higher level of Faith! Here you Rest in God. You don't care whatever is Happening! You Trust God to Give you Answers!


Once our side is Clear, we don't even need to pray much! Little Prayers, you See Big Answers!


May God Enable us to Know HIM more and More because the More we know, the Sweeter it is..

Even as a born again christian... I think this is truth in it....

I think most of the reasons our prayers are not answered is because we don't know what we want from God.

I think it wrong to ask God to do something that you can take care of. How can you ask God to heal you of headache when God has given us the knowledge to produce it's solutions.

You pray for a contract that you don't know anything about. You don't have any certificatify quality in the field, you don't know anyone in the praying area and you want a miraculous prayers to take you there.

You pray to God to give you knowledge when you have all the time to read your books and give yourself a disciplinary study to have the knowledge.

Listen. God Do things beyond human imaginations and not any casual thing that you are capable to handles.

I stop shouting AMEN! To all those unnecessary prophecies from some of these self -claim men of God because, I realized that God has personally given me the power to go after it and claim.



And it's wrong to ask God for so many things in one time prayer Because at the end, you won't know what you were asking for.



Please. Stop disturbing God over a problem you can solved. Just praise God and get more grace to excelled.


Above all... Live right with God.

He is the helper. He will help you even when words can't express how you feel (isn't he a good God that even provides help when our strengths have failed)

5) Ask in Jesus name:
John 15:16:
The father will give you whatever you ask of him in my name. Jesus is the key to get to the father. (Note this it is important)

6) Pray his word:
Give God his words and the promise of his words will be your portion (Don't forget to do it with faith). Pray the bible. As you study the word daily if any part speaks to you, use it as a prayer. It is his word and you know it is important to him. Write it done and make prophetic declarations about them

7)Thank God
Gratitude is very important. Even if you didn't see the manifestation yet (Philippians 4:6)
It is pride that makes you not to thank him (2 Chronicles 32:25)
Thank him cos he has already done it for you.

cool Submit it to his will:
Patience is important. Wait! it may not be time yet. But whilecyou wait what should you do?...Thanksgiving cos he has done it already.

Some prayers need you to call those faithful to help you so that their faith can help your faith (Matt 18:19) (James 5:14-15)

Faith is the bedrock. No prayer works without faith. Forget about the problem. It is difficult I know but you have to try dear loved one.
Devil will bring doubt, confess the assurance of the answered prayer. Dance when ever you remember it. Cos it has been answered.
You can also make a covenant with God (some kind of petitions need this) Let's the spirit lead you in this..he will speak to you about it and how to go about it. You are blessed
Those changed my prayer life. I am glad to share them with you, beloved.

So Let's go and do it the right way.
Your faithfully
Love

Happy Sunday

Your prayers aren't answered because the person you're praying to doesn't exist!
Prayers don't work! If they do, most Nigerians would be billionaires in dollars and Nigeria will be a better country than China.
Do nothing,say nothing and be nothing.
