Why Are My Prayers Unanswered?


Have you ever prayed for healing and felt like your prayers weren’t answered? It’s a common experience, one that can leave us feeling discouraged and wondering if our faith is lacking. But in 2 Corinthians 12:7-10, Paul reminds us that sometimes God’s answer to our prayers is not the one we were hoping for. He tells us that he pleaded with God three times to remove a thorn in his flesh, but God’s response was, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”

This scripture is a powerful reminder that God’s ways are not our ways, and that sometimes our struggles are the very things that allow us to experience God’s grace and power in a deeper way.
