Why Are My Prayers Not Answered?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Betty has been praying to God for the right man for a few years. Her expectation of her prayers being answered had driven her into some relationships that never worked out. You know how you had prayed and then the next person that showed up seemed like the right person, only for the person to heavily disappoint. Betty wasn’t happy at all. On some days, she would wake up with depression. At other times, she would think something was wrong with her.

What could be wrong with Betty?

There are those seasons in life that it looked like prayers are not working. At such times, it looked like prayers are bouncing off the ceiling back at you. At such other times, it might look like God has gone on holiday to the Bahamas.

It looked like your prayers to settle down in a marital relationship is being ignored. You were serving God in all ways you could and yet others who were not “serious” with God seemed to get their suitors and settle down quickly.

What exactly is happening?

Does God really forget someone? And if He does, should it be me?

Let’s take a look at the scriptures:

But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me.  Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.

Isa 49:14-15 (KJV)

The truth is clear here. God will never forget you. He has you in mind. It may look late, but it will eventually be the latest.

It may look like it’s taking long, but God will cause all thing to work out together for you. Keep trusting, keep believing and rest in the assurance that He has not forgotten you!

Good morning!

  • I have a question or may be a clarification?

    What should be an attitude of a person who has received the promise of God concerning her marriage when it come to praying marriage prayers, should the person be praying the payers again or should the person just thank God for his word that have come that is the word God has given her?
