Does God sometimes answer "No" to protect us from ourselves?
Give an example.
I'm sure he does. The same way a parent would do that for their kid. Also, I'm sure he would say no because he has something better in mind for you.
Absoluetly! Quite often actually I believe. Having been through brain surgery and drasically altering my family's life, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God has answered prayers made for my own selfish reasons with a resounding no. Many say that God answers all prayers, and I believe this as well, it is just that sometimes the answer is "No." As the other poster wrote, just as I do with my own child, God does with me, and while she can REALLLYthrow a fit (as can I if I am being honest), if it is not in her best interest I will still say, "no," just as thankfully god does for me.

eg the the people that didn't get healed when you prayed for them? Not enough faith? Hidden sin? God doesn't care? Answered prayers are really just luck anyway?
