Some prayers don’t go unanswered. They go unheard.
Any relationship, or ministry for that matter, based on what you get from God, isn’t a relationship or a ministry. Yes, God created you to be dependent on Him, but He didn’t bring you into existence to turn down His voice, and fill the prayer airwaves with “I want’s” or “I need’s.” “I” consistently used in a relationship reflects a one sided one, a selfish one. He created you out of love, and to experience the love that He has for you. He knows His love will fulfill and sustain you. But how could you ever know what that love is like if you never spend time reading HIs word, or listening to what He has to say to you. Some prayers don’t go unanswered. They go unheard. Stop and listen to what He’s saying to you. Develop a relationship with Him. He’s waiting.
