Why do some prayers seem not to be answered?

Sometimes, even when a person believes they are asking God for what he wants to give them, their prayers still don’t seem to be answered in the way they hoped.


Christians believe it is important at these times to remember that there are things they don’t know or fully understand. They believe that for God to answer a prayer in the way a person hoped might not be right for them or the people around them at that time.

However the Bible teaches it is still important that Christians keep on learning and growing to be more like Jesus, trusting that God will answer their prayers in the way that is right for them.
