“Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).
Based upon the promises of scripture, we are confident that God hears and answers the prayers of his people. Why, then, are so many frustrated in their prayer life? Could it be that most people consider a prayer to be answered only when it is fulfilled as they have asked and desired? The promise is that every prayer will be answered. The seasoned believer recognizes that prayer is often answered in ways we never expected, and sometimes never wanted. Of this you can be confident.
