    Yes, many times. But I think it has to do with my shortcomings in my love and belief in Him. Still, I do find that He has given me more than I deserve.

    God doesn't answer some of your prayers to test you just like a gold tested by fire.

    Some prayers are not answered so as to protect you from harm. God knows the consequences if He have answered some complicated prayers.

    Wondered long enough and now I just pretend I don't wonder anymore. I could offer you my advise and say "God sees everything but waits", "He is all-knowing", but a part of me does not want to believe that, even though I believe in God ever so much. But I guess you just need blind unquestionable faith sometimes( or always?), even though you feel as a hypocrite but you no what, this too shall pass...

    Yes but I believe it may appear as though he hasn't answered prayers because they may not be in accordance to his will.  Also it may just be that he hasn't answered our prayers yet.  Our prayers may not be answered when we want them to sometimes but in God's time when he feels the time is right and what he feels is right and best for us.

    Not really.  God's not there to answer our prayers.  We're here to come back to God and God's teachings.  He's not a machine, he's not there to give us whatever we want.  That notion is ridiculous.

    I believe God answers our prayers but not in the way we would expect. Sometimes we have to learn something first in order for it to be answered. Or sometimes it comes unexpectedly in another form. I know he hears all of our prayers, but it's not always a quick fix or answer.

    Yes I do. But I realize that God answers in three ways: Yes, No, and Wait. Then it becomes easier to deal with my situation from this perspective. God will always answer our prayers but not in the way we expect. However, he knows us and what we need as opposed to want. I think God is more interested in our character than just making us happy. Character is eternal while happiness is short lived.

    God bless.

    1. Your prayers are not in harmony with his will
    2. You don't need what you are praying for
    3. God has his proper time to answer prayers
    4. You are not living your life according to his standards
