‘The Lord longs to be gracious to you…therefore He waits…’ (Isa 30:18 NAS)
There are certain prayers God won’t answer for our own good. Unanswered prayer is God’s gift…it protects us from ourselves. Unanswered prayer protects…breaks…deepens…and transforms. Past unanswered prayers, which left us hurt and disillusioned, act like a refiner’s fire to prepare us for future answers.
