Why isn't God answering my Prayer?

      Many of us have asked this question time and time again.  You

may have been praying for years, but have yet to see an answer to your prayer.   Does God even hear my prayer?

When prayers go unanswered it is time to reevaluate the situation.

1.  Are you praying God's Will?  Jesus gives us instructions on how to pray in Matthew 6:  9-13.  You can not go wrong praying the way Jesus instructed us to pray.

2.  Are you praying in your Heavenly Language?  Romans 8: 26-27 explains how the Holy Spirit prays through us.  "In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness.  We do not know what we should pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us through groans too deep for words.  And He who searches our hearts knows the Mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God's people in accordance with the Will of God".  So you can not go wrong when you pray in the Spirit because the Spirit takes over the prayer and pray exactly what God's Will is.

3.  Waiting for the manifestation.  If you are certain that your prayer is within the Will of God than you are merely waiting for the manifestation.  Many Saints in the Bible had to wait years, even decades, before their prayer was answered.  We see this in Abraham and Sarah, Rachel's prayer to become pregnant, Hannah's prayer for children, Zacharias prayer for Elizabeth to bare children, and countless others.  "Wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord."  Psalm 27:14  So keep the Faith, stand your ground and give God thanks.
