Yes, God always hears us, and answers all our prayers.
The problem is, we may not always like the answers.
It is okay for us to prayer for some things that we think is good. But we need to be ultimately seeking His will in the matter and not our own. So then when the answer doesn't come the way we had hoped for, we are still okay with it, because what we really wanted was His will. Our true desire and want, is to want what He wants for us.
A good thing when you are praying for a certain direction in your life, or for a certain door to open, is to pray that He would close every door you are not to walk through. And really seek and pray for His will in the matter and not your own. Rest, trust, and know He wants what best for us, and He can see that so much more clearly than we can. He can see the big picture and the future, unlike us who can only see the here and now.
Never under estimate the power of prayer and the power of God!
Prayers does wonders for us in so many ways. When we prayer for certain things, not only do we receive the answers, "Yes", "No", or "Wait", but we receive so much more than that as well.
When we fervently come to the Lord in prayer, regardless of the turmoil our minds, hearts, and spirits had just been in, our hearts are comforted, our anger melts away, our minds and our souls become peaceful, and fears and worries dissolve. It's beautiful and amazing!
Take everything to the Lord in prayer, no matter how great or how small it may be. He hears and He cares. And regardless of how small it may seem to you, if it's troubling you, you need to release it to the One who can take care of it for you.
~ Keep diligent in prayer. It works!
God is the answer to all our problems!
