WHY PRAYERS SOMETIMES NOT ANSWERED?When we have doubts about God, prayers are delayed. The Lord demands complete confidence and faith in His word. To doubt God's word is to accuse Him of lying. The Bible says that prayer should be in harmony with it. Faith in His word therefore ensures that prayers will be answered. When something is expressly promised in God's word, we occasionally go to Him and beg Him for it, but we do not always fully believe and expect it to happen. Such a mindset would undoubtedly interfere with our prayers. God and His word are impervious to failure, mutability, and disappointment. He who questions the truth of God's message is unstable and unable to get guidance from the Lord.
