Answers to "Ask Mike" Questions
Question #43

43. How should one deal with unanswered prayers, when that person was already patient with it not getting an answer?

God always answers prayer, he just doesn't always answer the way we want. God answers prayer in five different ways. His answers can be:

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. Maybe
  4. Wait
  5. You've got to be kidding!

It has been my experience that God always wants what is best for us. Scripture teaches us to be persistent in prayer. Jesus said, "Ask, Seek, Knock." (see Matthew 7:7) If you continue in prayer, God will either grant your request in time or you will get the message that what you want is not in your best interest. Be patient and trust God.
