When God doesn’t answer your prayer: What happens When God doesn’t answer your Prayer? What to do When God doesn’t answer your Prayers?
2 Corinthians 12:8-10, NIV Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. ( ~ Apostle Paul)

When God doesn’t answer your prayer: What happens when God doesn’t answer your prayer?
Dear Friends: First, we have to make sure we are not living in willful disobedience to God. Persistent, unconfessed and unrepentant sin is definitely one reason why our prayers may go unanswered. So is unforgiveness/refusing to forgive others when they have wronged us. (whether or not they ask for forgiveness!)
Psalm 66:18, NIV If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened;
Psalm 66:18, NLT If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.
Matthew 6:14-15, NLT If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.
Psalm 139:23-24, NLT Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Help us Lord! See also: 10 Bible Verses about God Searching Our Hearts; Purify my heart Lord.
Let us now move on to other reasons why it may seem like God is not answering our prayers.
When God doesn’t answer your prayer
Dear Friends, God answers prayers. But sometimes, God doesn’t answer our prayers the way we want Him to. Sometimes, God’s answer to our prayer is “yes”, sometimes His answer is “no”, and sometimes His answer is “wait.”

Summary: By God’s grace, you keep on trusting God, and you keep on fixing your eyes on God. Please hang in there, don’t give up, & please, don’t take your eyes away from God!
Whatever you may be going through, May God help you to keep on Trusting God in the midst of the storm. When you don’t understand what’s going on around you, please remember to keep your eyes firmly on God! Always remember that we belong to God, and God is for us. Yes, our faithful God is on our side, and we can trust Him!
I’d like to share three things with you to buttress this point. First is a set of powerful scriptures, second is a powerful song, and third is a collection of helpful posts. Finally, we close with prayers.
