Unanswered Prayer . Luke 22:41-42.....41He withdrew about a stone's throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, .....42"Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done." Upon reading this am I just got it . We are not the only ones who have unanswered prayers. Jesus had an unanswered prayer . He prayed Father remove this cup from me ...... but He also said He wanted the Father's will ..... not His own . So when we have unanswered prayers, we should remember Jesus Prayer ..... and God's will because His will is higher than ours . What it really comes down to is that we should ask for God's will not ours.... that's being obediennt and submissive to the will of God . Matthew 6:32-33...... 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them..... 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. OUr Heavenly Father knows our needs before we even ask and He wills them according to what is best for us .
