What if your prayers are not answered? Do you continue to pray or fight with God?
Maybe He did answer it, but you couldn't recognise it because it wasn't the answer you wanted. God helps/answers those who put in an effort into what they are praying about, or maybe the answer will come in time, His time, when it's right. Personally, I keep praying...and I don't fight or blame Him for my calamities, or for the badness, the evil that happens...He is not the ruler of Earth...Satan is. If it isn't Satan's domain, Satan couldn't have offered all "the kingdoms of the Earth" to Jesus. He couldn't give something unless he owned it first, could he? Sorry...back to the question...I would pray, hope for understanding His answer...and He does answer. Its up to us to have a close enough relationship with Him, to recognise His answer.
Excellent views Kathleen. We should regard our God as the Ruler of both our selves and the universe, how come its possible that God rule ourselves but not the planet we live in? Anyway. Thanks for the response.
Good reply. I agree with you totally, Kathleen!
God is the Creator of ALL, yet He doesn't rule us. We have free will. He has given us a written, inspired book with what He wants us to follow, He gave His son to tell and show us what we should do to please God, and Earth is given to US..
If any one does not believe in God then you are right but when we say we believe in Him means that belief should consider Him the Ruler, Cherisher & Sustainer of the worlds.
I agree with Kathleen's answer fully. I just want to add one thing: A 'no response' could mean God is not in favor of the the specific response you are hoping for.
More likely when there's "no response" it means that no one is hearing your prayers other than yourself! Prayer is a way for people to comfort themselves.
Interesting Robert, then what do you do for your needs? Don't you call Him even in severe hardships?
Javed, are you assuming there's no way to meet one's needs or cope with hardship other than praying to a god? And to which of the thousands of "gods" of human history would I be praying?
See Robert, its the human nature that during hardtimes or in urgent need his inner self do inclines towards the mercy of God, as far the selection of God, you just ask your inner self.
Yes, it's probably part of human nature to find a way to comfort oneself in hardship, including creating a "god" in one's mind to give mental comfort. That's totally different than actually proving that any of said "gods" exist.
Not just for comfort Robert, also to show stesdfadtness during trials. Actually one thing is missing that is a rational approach to link the human nature with the will of God, its not about proving God as the created being can't prove the Creator.
Hey Robert! Here to make another arguement? Just one other question... Have you ever been mad or hurt or scared where you say, "Goddamn"? With that one word, you believe..even if you think you don't...
yes, i still ray to God regardless whether he answers or not, because you can't expect Him to reply all your request. Just pray earnestly and someday, miracle may happen
There's always an answer to prayer. Sometimes it takes a while to materialize. Other times we might not like the answer but it's still an answer. I keep on until I know what it is
