    This is a hard question to answer. The Bible says "the prayers of a righteous man availeth much". So I believe God takes our prayers into consideration.

      Prayers change our mind to suit with the will of God. Later on the life spend with patience opens the God's door of mercy.

    This is one of those issues that the Bible has more than one answer for. Here are some references that state that God does NOT change his mind:

    Numbers 23:19
    I Samuel 15:29

    And here it says that God DOES change his mind:

    Exodus 32:14

    So, judge for yourself. If the God of the Bible is real, then it seems the answer to your question is anybody's guess.

    Great Question! The Bible says that God is unchanging, but there is a story with Moses that makes it seam that God's mind was changed.  I have heard the argument that God was just testing Moses.  In short, I don't know.  But I leaned towards yes.
