Why We Miss The Answer To Our Prayers

Pray without ceasing.

It is written in God’s Word that we are to ‘pray without ceasing’. (1st Thessalonians ch.5:v.17), yet as we pray, especially in our times of greater distress or ‘need’, we forget that God is still speaking, and in our wailing and anguishing and covering of ashes, the answer can be missed… for example,

YOU: Oh God, I need you help! I am struggling through this and don’t have a clue how to get out!
GOD: This is what you do…
YOU: Friends are gone, no family… all I have is YOU LORD! Please help me!
GOD: I am here, and…
YOU: I have been praying to You OVER AND OVER AGAIN, and I still don’t have an answer Lord! You said that You wouldn’t leave me alone, but where are you Lord???
GOD: I am…
YOU: Why wont You answer me???
GOD: I am giving you the ans…
YOU: WHY LORD??? What have I done??? Have I made You angry??? Are You still there???? Why wont You ANSWER ME???
GOD: I am giving you the ans…
YOU: Never mind… Amen.

The Word of God tells us to pray without ceasing… it didn’t say pray without pausing.
