how God answers prayer

God answers prayer!

In fact, God hears and answers all of our prayers.  

Often, He answers us immediately with a resounding, “YES!” And, don’t we like it when He does? 

However, “YES!” is not the only way our Fathers will respond to our prayers. 

How Does God Answer My Prayers? 

Basically, answers to prayer can fall into one of four categories.  

These are not hard and fast rules, but they can give us some insight into how God might answer and respond to our requests. 

First, God can answer our prayers with a resounding, “YES!” 

We ask, and God does it. We pray, and we see immediate results. The check comes in the mail, the house sells, the job offer is made, the baby is born, or some other wonderful answer to prayer occurs.

Psalm 27:14 “Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.”

Join us as we take a clear and practical look at some of the most basic and essential tenants of the Christian life – the doctrines of the faith.  

Each week, we will highlight and explain a core doctrine. Then, we will pose the question, “Why does this matter to you and me?” 

You can catch all of this year’s “Delight in Doctrine” posts by clicking HERE.  

For the purposes of the study, our main texts will be first, the Bible, of course, and Wayne Grudem’s classic, Systematic Theology:  An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine.   

It is our prayer that by the end of 2017, we will all find more delight in understanding what we believe and why we believe it.  

“…And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27 (ESV)
