In ways, that may be so. But that doesnt count for every prayer. Sometimes it is simply though faith. Other times it is simply through pacience.

Hey there Doug, is right. However God does say he will give us our hearts desire if we believe. In Matthew 7:7-8 it says " ASK AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU; SEEK AND YOU WILL FIND; KNOCK IT WILL WILL BE OPENED TO YOU. "FOR EVERYONE WHO ASKD RECEIVES, ANS HE WHO SEEKS FINDS, AND TO HIM WHO KNOCKS IT WILL BE OPENED. AND IN MARK 11:24 IT SAYS. "THEREFORE I SAY TO YOU, WHATEVER THINGS YOU ASK WHEN YOU PRAY, BELIEVE THAT YOU RECEIVE THEM, AND YOU WILL HAVE THEM. See that it comes down to is us trusting & believing that God can do all things for those who believe in him. There is nothing too hard nor impossible for him to do. I hope in some way i have helped you. If you need more information & need prayer you can email me at [email hidden from spammers] & you can email me anytime, anyday, no matter the hour. Your in my prayers. God Bless You
In Christ Jesus,

Thank you for posting that scripture verse. It is so important for us to take the to examine the motives of our prayers. So many times some of us believe God doesn't care or doesn't hear our prayers because we didn't get what we asked for. What a great scripture to remind us to examine our motives. God is not a genie. We are to conform to His will. So even when it feels our prayers get stuck on the ceiling, let us not lose faith but open ourselves up to the message in James. Thanks for sharing.

Also he may not simply respond because it's not yet his due time? We need sometimes patience and be carreful of what he say us to do then he will respond
