He always answers the prayers of His children, just like a wonderful earthly father would answer his own child who asked for something...and even more so. He answers us in our spirit with a Word to stand on or some specific direction that will move us toward the desired result. It is because we function more carnally (five sense oriented) than we do spiritually that we do not perceive His voice. Hardness of heart is caused by being moved more by the realm of what can be seen rather than remaining unshakeable (through faith) in what cannot be seen. And hardness of heart affects how we hear. Over and over we are told to take heed to HOW (not what) we hear. Yes, He always answers us. The problem is never the signal. It's the receiver.

God answers all prayers.........He answered mine...Maybe he is waiting for the right time........
---Pranali on 7/19/08


God does not answer every prayer, nor does he answer to just anybody..., Job 42:8_10, James 4:3,. James 5:16 "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." Proverbs 15:8, 15:29, 28:9.
---Nana on 6/25/08


Expect sounds kind of rude. I hope. I believe that God will take care of me no matter what I pray for, but it might not be what I want. But It's always what I need. and then some spare for the road. and always something to have a good laugh over afterwards.

Do you expect God to answer every prayer?


Answer to this question is YES...But we must remember that God will give different answers to different prayers...sometimes the answer is:

YES
NOT NOW
Or
NO
We must ask and then be silent to hear what God is trying to show or tell you.There were certain times in my life where I was so so happy He didn't grant me certain things that I asked for.God knows better than we do what we need.Thank you Jesus..........Gabby8758

Concerning God answering all prayers. Please read first John 5:14-15," 14-And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

15-And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
God answers those prayers that he hears, and he hears those that agree with his will!!!
---Mima on 6/3/08


I dont think so.

Prov 15:29 "The LORD is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous."

Prov 28:9 "One who turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination."
---Todd1 on 5/28/08


StrongAxe, God also answers our prayes through His word. Praying and the reading of the bible will often give answers to our needs.

I have a freind with a son who is a strong Christian
But sadly, he has schyzophrenia.
It has to be controlled by drugs.
He felt he should come off the medication.
But he truned violent snd is currently detained in a secure hospitsl.
Please don't tell me we should not use our brains & the skills God has given us

I have another freind whoswe daughter has brain damage cause during birth.
That is physical damage, not a brain disorder.
Are we not to use rthe skill's gd has given the doctors to give her a good life?

And Catherine ... have you really never ever used medication or a plaster?

James 4.1-4 GOD DOES NOT ANSWER ALL prayers. Thank God for that.
He actually answers the prayers that are prayed IN JESUS NAME, on condition that you pray with the mentality of Christ.
---Andy on 4/12/08


NVBarbara:

The problem is, when the answer always appears to be "solve it yourself", one learns more and more to rely on ones own devices rather than on God.
---StrongAxe on 4/12/08


Acts 14:8 And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked:
9 The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed,
10 Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.

Acts 9:32 And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all quarters, he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda.
33 And there he found a certain man named Aeneas, which had kept his bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy.
34 And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately.
35 And all that dwelt at Lydda and Sharon saw him, and turned to the Lord.
---Monique on 4/11/08


yes god answers prayer.the problem is most don,t like the answer they get,or they say God won,t answer.they don,t realize that usually when God don,t answer it usually means they aint ready spiritually yet for the answer.
---tom2 on 4/10/08


So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Rom 10:17

The body of Christ, Christians live in the authority of God's Word.
When you live in the authority of God's Word, it does not return void.

Humanity adds stipulations, boundaries, fences, rituals, pat answers, rote prayers, auto-pilot traditions that are contrary to the Word.

If I'm believing for a miracle, I'm not going to seek agreement in prayer from a flip-flopper. Unequally yoked prayer partners, one in unbelief is not a good match for one completely convinced that God's Word is true, without all of the backup plans in place for failure.
---Monique on 4/10/08


God's Word is filled with liberty. It produces liberty.
The enemy wants to reestablish bondage in hearts of believers. He sends oppression, fear and anxiety, depression.

The shield of faith quenches every fiery dart that the wicked one brings against us.
Without the shield of faith, the enemy wants those fiery darts of oppression, depression to take hold. If he can keep someone depressed, they won't hinder his plans.
---Monique on 4/10/08


Yes, God always answers prayers, often the answer is NO. We MUST know His voice in our hearts.

Delayed answers are all well and fine, but when a prayer is for something with a specific time limit (like "I'm being offered this job and I have to answer by tomorrow. Should I take it?"), a delayed answer is the same as no answer at all.
StrongAxe on 4/8/08

God has given you an answer, He's relying on your using your brain and heart from past experiences with Him. Savvy?
---NVBarbara on 4/10/08


Added stipulations, boundaries, walls, fences, I'm leaping over them. Not conforming my mind to this world but transforming and renewing my mind by the Word of God.

I am fully persuaded by the Word of God.

Ephesians 5:1, be imitators of God as children imitate their parents.

Jesus said, "Have faith in God", the God kind of faith or faith of God.

If Jesus came to you personally and said, according to your faith, let it be so and it will come to pass.
Would that increase your faith?

I believe it would.
---Monique on 4/10/08


Well, I was going to say yes, too. Thank you moderator. I expect God to answer every questiion. Right now God is laughing.
---catherine on 4/10/08


Monique: (1)

While it's clear that God CAN do anything, what God WILL do is another matter.

Jesus said that if one had the faith of a mustard seed, one could command a mountain to be removed and be thrown into the sea. Yet in the last 2000 years, that has never happened even once. This suggests that not a single human being since then has had even that much faith.
---StrongAxe on 4/10/08


Monique: (2)

I have heard tales of people whose limbs have been lengthened. But none of people who have totally regrown missing limbs. I have heard tales of poeple whose sight has been restored. But none of people who have regrown missing eyes.

If there's some kind of miracle that God hasn't done in 2000 years, it's still quite possible that he'll do it. But if you fully believe for such a miracle, it's much more likely that you're setting yourself up for a major disappointment.

Answer to Eloy, John 9:31, He hears our prayers, He didn't say He would answer as we desire. 2 Cor. 1:20 speaks about the promises of the OT and NT of peace, Joy, love, forgiveness, sanctification, fellowship, hope, glorification, and heaven made possible and fulfilled in Jesus Christ (Luke 24:44). Now comes 1 John 5:14,15. Notice the first sentence which gives the clue to the message.
---Mark_V. on 4/10/08


#2. "now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, (Remember, according to His will) we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him." To pray according to His will is to pray in accord with what He would want, not what we would desire or insist that He do for us (John 14:13,14). John had already specified that answered prayer also depends on obedience to God
---Mark_V. on 4/10/08


#3. and avoidance of sin. So the Moderator is correct, He does answer prayer but many times it is not the answer we so desire. Many a man and women have prayed for a dying son or daughter to make it, and they don't. God has a purpose mush bigger then what we think. It has to be according to His will and purpose.
---Mark_V. on 4/10/08

It's a lot easier when the goal is honesty for its own sake, rather than tailoring answers to curry popularity, or to manipulate other people's thinking and opinions :)

Pardon me, but I'm not really interested in arguing over what God can't do. I couldn't live like that.
I believe nothing is impossible with God.
Nothing.

When you're believing for healing, you have to kick all doubt and unbelief out the door.
Equally yoked prayer partners are a blessing. They know how to replace the heavy burden and take Jesus' yoke, His burden is easy and light.

I know. That is what I end up doing.

But then others will then accuse me of relying on my own wisdom rather than that of God, so I can't win.
---StrongAxe on 4/9/08


Many prayer requests read like a wish list for Santa Claus. I need this, I want that, I need money, prosperity and gimmee gimmee gimmee things and more things and things. They ask for the same things on a regular basis. I wonder if they seek God's hand on a regular basis or if they ever seek God. After the things come, it's on to the next list of things. That's about the extent of their relationship with God. That's gut wrenching.
---Ted on 4/9/08


Yes. I believe God answers prayer. I believe answers can be received as fast as we pray for them, before we finish saying our Thank Yous.

Working in a pressure cooker, I learned to pray on the fly. God can answer prayers during a quick restroom break or while you're picking up a pen from under your desk.

When the pressure is on, total reliance upon God is the only way you can make it, day after day, year after year.
Holy Spirit teaches you how to survive, without losing your cool or mind.

Receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit gives you strength, power to pray, like you've never known before. Grace under fire. I recommend Him, Holy Spirit, for anyone that needs steel in their backbone, courage, answers and favor that comes from the presence of God through His Spirit.

Yes. I know God answers prayers.

Without faith, it is impossible to please God. Religious dogma can talk you out of faith.

Listen to a child. They ask for the desires of their heart. Some of them can't read and wouldn't know where to look in God's Word to make sure their prayer is in perfect alignment with the Word of God.

The Holy Spirit moves them. They pray, they believe and they receive.

The Lord works on his own time frame which sometimes is not ours. I believe he does answer prayer. Sometimes he answers "No". Our heavenly father knows what we stand in need of before we ask - Matt 6:8.

The Holy Spirit can give you an answer in a micro-second, without delay. He gives us answers, answers, answers.

When faced with two decisions, two different job offers, He can tell you which one is the best place for you.
Do you believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit? Our spiritual eyes and ears, see/ hear clearly when the Holy Spirit is leading us.
The Holy Spirit reveals truth. His witness will give you a knowing and a peace that passes all human understanding.

God is moved by our faith in Him, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The devil is a driver. He drives and pushes with fear and anxiety. He drives us to make wrong decisions, pushing us to act out of our emotions. When you feel a sudden panic, in a quandry, that's the driver mode.

" here is the thing: God has a [marriage] covenant with His bride. He therefore can only be the God of His bride, and then only IF she also keeps the agreement."

Yes I do. One way or the other prayer do get answered. I believe. Sometimes the answers come in ways we do not expect but they do get answered, in God's way and time.
We should be prepared to accept God's answer, regardless of what it is.

If that is the case, Mima, what is the point of praying?
If you are correct, when the prayer is not in accordance with God's will, we will not even get the answer "No"
---alan_of_UK on 4/8/08


Yes, I agree with the Mod on this. Says in Isaiah 65.24: "It will also come to pass that before they call, I will answer and while they are still speaking, I will hear." Hope that helps! :)
---tabit8547 on 4/8/08


Here is the thing: God has a [marriage] covenant with His bride. He therefore can only be the God of His bride, and then only IF she also keeps the agreement. This means IF you don't keep the ten commandments, then God can't be your God, and He then can't answer you because He for sure does NOT shack up! It gets tricky here: Satan can answer to make you think he is your god.

John 9:31: In this world which commonly trys it's best to wrongfully group all people, both the godly and the ungodly, into one group, this is one of the most powerful verses in the Bible. It speaks volumes of how there is a clear distinction between the people of God and the people not of God.

the unregenerate think God is an unconditional giver and doer for selfish and unrepenting man, but the truth is you serve God and God does not serve you. I do not pray for everything that others ask for, and God is not mocked. God will have pity where he will have pity, and judgment where he will have judgment.

Those prayers that agree with God's will are answered, the rest or in the air with no guantee of landing.
---mima on 4/7/08


If the scripture is true that says, "He works all things after the counsel of HIS will," and I believe it is true. Then if we are praying for something outside of His will, He isn't responsible to bring it to pass, is he? Which leads me to a question for ya all. Does He answer prayers that are outside of His will? What would be the purpose in Him doing that? Just curious...

Yes! I expect God to answer every prayer. The problem is not that God answers every prayer or not, but will I accept His answer? He answers in 3 ways, "Yes", "No" and/or "wait".
