There Are No Unanswered Prayers

A woman clasps her hands in prayer

But Jesus gave her no reply, not even a word. Then His disciples urged Him to send her away. “Tell her to go away,” they said. “She is bothering us with all her begging.”—Matthew 15:23 (NLT)

Have you ever had that terrible feeling that God is ignoring you? Perhaps it’s a prayer request that has been on your heart for years. After a while it’s tempting to simply give up! Instead ask Him to help you use your struggle to grow your faith.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I trust your merciful nature and trust there is always a reason and an answer that fits with Your plan.

Adapted from 60 Days of Prayer, a new publication from Guideposts

They can be inspiring, comforting or even humorous. When you make time to read a daily devotion, you make space for your soul. A daily devotional offers a chance to take a break from the busy world and connect with God. Let your daily devotions lead your spiritual life forward.
