Why does God say NO to some Prayers?
•*””*•Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ God can give 4 answers to prayer:
(3) 'Not yet.'
(4) 'I have something better in mind.’
There are times when we pray to God for certain things, but don’t receive the answer. Sometimes, the answer might take a while to materialise but sometimes God says: No.
Why does He say "No"?
a) In the long run, what we have asked for, will not be beneficial to us.
b) He has something much better in mind. Example: you pray to God for a new house for you to rent, but because of His mercies, God delays the answer, while he sets things in motion for you to actually own your own house, instead of renting for years and years.
c) Praying not in accordance to His Will and Word. Also, Sin. Example: I have heard of a case of robbers in a bank, praying to God that the robbery operation will be successful. Doh!
d) A test of our faith. Will we throw in the Towel? My pastor once said it is so easy to praise God when you have thousands of Pounds or Dollars in your Bank Account. Infact, your voice would be one of the loudest, but how about when our bank account is overdrawn….? Will we still praise Him and be Thankful for our lives?
These are just a few reasons why God says "No."
