Why wont Jesus hear my prayers? A friend of mines father has cancer. The doctors say it is terminal and there really isn’t anything they can do about it. It’s really sad and I wish deeply to console my friend. Then one day I recalled these scriptures, Matthew 21:21: I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. Mark 11:24: Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. James 5:15-16 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. I prayed myself, heartfully and honestly. Every ounce of faith I have I put into my prayers. Then more scripture came to me, Matthew 18:19 Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them. We have a large group of Christian friends, and I requested a prayer in church for my friends father. But still nothing has happened. Even in our prayer groups. Matthew 17:20 Jesus says: For truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you. Nothing will be impossible to me. Then why hasn’t my friends fathers cancer been cured? Why wont Jesus hear my prayers and heal him? He is a good Christian man who loves Jesus.
