Why? – Part 2

Today we are going to talk about one of the more commonly asked questions by those who pray or those who are Christians and that’s the question, “Why didn’t God answer my Prayer?” If you’ve prayed a lot, if you’re a person of faith, chances are at some point you asked God to do something that you knew God could, you thought He should, He didn’t. And if you’re like a lot of people, it rattled your faith and you’re wondering, “Why didn’t God do what I asked Him to do?” especially in light of some verses in the Bible like this one, John 14:13-14 says, Jesus said:
I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. You read a verse like that and you think, “Well, I asked in the name of Jesus and I know God could and He didn’t do it. And then I read about other stories in the Bible like Joshua who prayed that the sun would stand still and it did for a day. And Daniel in the Lions’ Den with hungry lions everywhere and he prayed and hungry lions went on a diet and you’re reading all of this going, “They prayed and things like that happened and I prayed and nothing happened!” This week we look to the scriptures to attempt to answer the question: “Why didn’t God answer my prayer?”
