Unanswered Prayers

  1. John Hagee once said in a sermon, "God answers all prayer, it may be Yes, or no, or wait; and two of those we don't want to hear."
     
  2. No, wait! Not those two!
    Funny, but sad.

    In a nutshell:
    If the answer is 'yes' or 'no' then our prayer was only to confirm a truth and a faith we already knew from God's given conscience (of right and wrong). How often, upon receiving such an answer, have we said to ourselves: "I knew it all along".
    If the answer is 'wait' then our prayer is under instruction, teaching us to be obedient to God's will. In waiting, we allow God to intercede in our prayer.
