David Jeremiah teaching on prayer : Dr. David Jeremiah of Shadow Mountain Community Church has been on a question and answer campaign on prayers. In this campaign, the founder of Turning Point Ministry, Pastor David Jeremiah welcomes the general public to ask him any question on prayer and have a biblical anwer on them.
Below is Dr David Jeremiah’s answr to : When your prayer goes unanswered does one continue praying & asking again or is no answer the answer?”
In Matthew 7 Jesus says, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (verse 7). As believers, God hears and answers each one of our prayers. God may answer with “Yes.” He may answer with “No,” so we must trust in His plan, not our own. He may even answer with “Wait.” In which case we should continue to pray and wait patiently for His answer. But we can trust that He will answer.
Throughout Scripture we read about how God answered prayer. Here are some examples:
Prayer opened the Red Sea for the Israelites (Exodus 14).
Prayer made the sun stand still as God’s chosen people fought their enemies (Joshua 10:1-15).
Prayer brought fire from the sky on Elijah’s sacrifice (1 Kings 18:20-40).
Prayer healed the sick and raised the dead (Acts 9:36-43; 28:7-10).
And God continues to answer the prayers of His people—for provision, for protection, and for peace. God’s faithful answering of our prayers points to His infinite love—a love that is far beyond our human comprehension.
