Trusting God With Your Unanswered Prayers

Trusting God With Your Unanswered Prayers can be hard sometimes, but remember in all circumstances that God knows what’s best for us.

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” (Ephesians 3:20

God knows what’s best for us and we all know that not everything that’s good to us, is good for us.

That’s why trusting God is so important. You have to trust Him enough to say “If it doesn’t work out exactly how I want, with who I want, or when I want, I know God will never steer me wrong”.

Sometimes we pray for things we are not ready for or that we think we want at the moment.

But God knows that we are settling and deep down inside, we know it too. It just sounds good at the moment, but in the long run we end up asking ourselves “What was I thinking?”

We often realize that it’s not what we wanted after all. That’s why it’s so important to pray for God’s best, not just for what sounds good at the moment.

You can’t go wrong if you go with God’s best. He knows us better than we know ourselves. We may think we want something today and tomorrow it sounds ridiculous or we simply realize that we just weren’t as ready as we thought we were.

But God knows all and sees all. We can’t fool Him. He’s only going to give us what is His best. Not ours.

Every answer will not be a yes. Can you handle that?

Can you accept that even if you don’t get what you want, God has something better in store for you?

It might be something you haven’t even thought enough about, to pray about.

Or something that you are afraid to even pray about because you feel it’s just too much to ask God for.

Or something you are reluctant to pray about because you feel like you honestly don’t deserve it.

Can you accept that even if it doesn’t happen right now, it will happen just at the right moment. Can you accept that even if it doesn’t happen with who you want, how you want, or where you want, it will happen?

Will you choose to wholeheartedly accept God’s will even when you don’t understand it?

Trusting God’s Will

I truly believe without a doubt that It’s the times when we are at our worst, when God is preparing us for His best.

I personally, cannot think of one time where this wasn’t the case when I faced my most challenging times.

Sometimes we want something so bad that we never stop to ask God what He wants for us. We set our hopes on favors too small. Thinking that if we don’t ask for much, God will answer our prayer.

I remember as a child, I would pray for something really big and then I would end my prayer by saying something like “Lord, if You can’t give me what I want, just give me what You can!”

As an adult, I’ve learned that our God is not a second best God. He only gives His very best. No in between, No half steppin’.

If you’re praying for God to open doors for you, but it seems as though you’re only getting doors slammed in your face, Remain Faithful, and know that God has something better in store for you! Something that is going to blow your mind!

Trusting God with your unanswered prayers can be hard sometimes, but remember in all circumstances that God knows what’s best for us.

Whatever you’re going through today, I want to encourage you to surrender it to God right now and lift up this quick prayer:

Our Prayer…

Lord, forgive me for not always believing that everything will work out in my favor.

Sometimes I don’t see how any good can come from my situation.

I don’t always see the big picture when I’m hurting. 

But Lord, I know that there is nothing You can not do.

I know that You are already working on my behalf.

Not only will I wait patiently for Your answer, I will give You praise right now for what You are about to do!

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen.

  1. I think God is deaf to my prayers…. struggles and hardship has been hitting me at every angle. I am literally broke, broken and me and my princess are starved. I have cried and prayed to God no breakthrough…smh

    • One thing I wanna say is that just because you believe in God doesn’t mean poof, problem gone,
      Its still a journey to be had, Why people think Christianity is fake is because they expect to have a perfect life after being born again, Of course God can take away your pain if he wanted to but he wants to make sure,
      You gonna be with me all the way after that or you gonna come to when you need help,
      Its easy to pray for God to help us get past a phase,
      But How about praying for God to be with you through the pain?
      It is written in Isaiah that even though you walk Through the Ocean and flames (see here not above the water or around the fire but THROUGH It) You will not drown, you will not burn,
      Keep the faith, Because Blessed is the person who has overcome through trials, for the Lord has the crown of life waiting for that person who perseveres,
      Because even when it seems that the presence of God is not there, I wanna say that the grace that saved us is the same that is with us even today, even if we do not feel or see it, this is why we say,
      PERSEVERANCE THROUGH FAITH,
      Will pray for you though don’t worry.

    • I pray all the time even through my trials. I am a humble person but i am human and to have doubt and to expect relief is human especially when kids are involved. I know God isnt a magician and i know be works in mysterious ways and on his time. I know he doesnt give us more than we can bear and he helps those who hrlps themselves but when u have done it all and more and relief seems unreavhable willing or not doubt kicks in. I am no christian, nor do i practice any religion. I believe in god and all he stands for and all he is. I praise him and worship him all the time but i was taught it is also ok to remind him that i am still in need and waiting on him patiently

    • Keep your faith and God will take care of your life. Don’t give up ever. <3 I have been there where you are now in your life. Remember ...you are not alone in this world because God is always with you .

    • Yes keep faith and God will grant our prayers but be patient remember Job in a Bible his life is too much disaster but he never blame God he is patiently waiting to the mercy of God until he finally received the blessings of the Lord.

    • Sister, I am in the same boat with my family, but glory be to God we still wake up to a new day and a home and a bed that is all in God’s hands. Right now, My walker has all the money I have in my home at this moment and it’s only 20$ … that’s it and I have to pay for rent and electricity and gas … I suffer from clinical depression, lost my lover years ago, and lost a year of college … but God is good and why? Because I pray no more for just the end goals, but the journey. Our hearts must seek him in the storm. Doubt is healthy, but to prolong it and walk away from a God you know exists is simply denying the glory of this life he has given us and the one who died for our sins. I don’t want to guilt you. Your pain and tears and heartaches have its differences to mine even though we seem to be in financial troubles, but he counts your tears and your cries and pains and agonies and loves you even if you lash out at him. Letting it out to him is good, but letting it go to him is better. This system and these debtors are the fire and pressure, but you are his star, his diamond, his joy to go through it as he did as a poor Jew in Nazareth who suffered greatly like we did too even with his greatness.

    • It’s TOUGH especially when children involved. Sometimes the advice people give you may not make sense at all, because you have done it all already but nothing seems to change. Don’t lose faith Kadia. Lord, we don’t understand why you waited so long. But, when He is four days late, He still on time.

    • My sister,am in the sameboat with u.many times I pray,fast,go to prayer mountains but still,every thing keep rolling in circle.it is depressing and highly frustrating but the bible encourage us that in all things,give thanks.a friend posted an update sometime ago and said “many of us complain about how some if our mates are married, getting high paid jobs and living in luxury. He said we have also forgotten that some of our mates are also dead,some are in prison and some are in psychiatric hospitals or where they never wished to be.” So my sister,that we are alive and still breathing, let’s give thanks.we may not be where we wished to be but we are better than where we used to be.#cheer up #

  2. When your pray believe you receive and you will have it. God never says no when you line your prayer up with the will of God and the will of God IS the Word of God. All my prayers are already answered in Jesus. Grace makes and faith takes…

  4. I surrender everything to you my Father God my health,family, friends my financial situation let me stay out of your way your plans and ways are better than mine,I thank you Jesus Amen.

  5. God has never let me down!! Again and again he has shown his love for me, even as my world was falling apart, he was right there beside me guiding me through it all. I praise his name and have complete faith that he knows what is best for my life. Thy will be done in my life.

  6. I pray for your will to be done in my life dis day n every day.break n hinder every evil plan n purpose of de devil,de world n my sinful nature dat i might believe ur Holy World n lead godly life here in time n ultimately in ur glorious presence in eternity Amen.

  7. Let us pray, our great LORD JESUS, We thank you for all the favor you have given us. And forgive us if we forget to do what we learned from you. Continue to guide and guard us to all bad people and protect our children, president, youth and elderly to all evil plans and plot. Bless all hands that work fairly and increase the sales of business that operate fairly. Lord, u see evry cells of our body. Touch and heal our heart, bones, blood, lungs, liver, kidney, pancreas, small and large instestine, ovary/male productive organ and our veins that weaken. Thank u for helping to those who need you most. Cover us Lord Jesus with your precious and powerful blood. This we pray to our only LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. Amen.

  8. Lord help your children as we continue to surrender all to you..take away our shame and disgrace, shock all those who are mocking us just as you did to the Egyptian when you make way where there seems to be no way for the Israelites …Amen
