    Thank you. I am still struggling but I won’t stop praying. I just don’t know whether God is telling me to hold on or to let it go.

  • Hello dear sister,

    It can be hard to remember that seemingly unanswered prayer is not unheard and unattended prayer. God always hears the prayers of His children (Psalm 66:19-20, 34:15, 65:2, Prov. 15:29). His response, however, is dependent on His Personhood, His will, and His providence.

    Because we believe in our Heavenly Father, we come to Him in faith and make our requests (Hebrews 11:6). Because of Christ, we can come before Him boldness, without fear of His acceptance of us (Heb. 4:15-16.) And because of the Holy Spirit, we know He makes our prayers acceptable to be heard by the Lord (Rom. 8:26-27). The confidence in knowing our prayers are heard is anchored in faith in our triune God.

    As Christians, we are called to pray for His will to be done in our lives (1 John 5:14-15, Matthew 6:10). There are times we have specific requests that we believe line up with His will (being filled with the Spirit, being protected from harm, salvation for others, etc.), and we can ask for those things to be done in Jesus’ name (Matt. 7:7-8, John 16:23-24). There are also times that we have hopes, desires, and needs, and we may not be sure of God’s will, but we can present our requests to the Lord and ask for His will to be done (James 1:5). God’s will may not always be clear to us, but when we acknowledge His Personhood and Lordship in our lives, and trust that His will for us is always good, we can pray for His will to be done and believe that He knows what’s best for us.

    The next part, where you are, can be very, very hard. It is the waiting period when the answers to our prayers have not yet been revealed. This requires a tremendous amount of patience. Sometimes waiting for an answer to prayer is a trial unto itself. There is testing of our faith, enduring difficult circumstances, fear, worry, loneliness, doubt, letting go of expectations, and so much more, while we wait for an answer. And truly, some prayer burdens are not temporary. They can be life-long. We are taught great perseverance through prayer. We are exhorted to continue to pray, pray in every circumstance, not grow weary, and not trust in our own understanding while we are praying for or about something (I Thess. 5:16-18, Eph. 6:18, Phil. 4:6, Gal 6:9, Prov. 3:5-6). This type of prayer life is not easy, but it is crucial for maintaining our our walk with God while we wait. If we give up our prayers, or we become cavalier about our faith, it becomes easier to believe that God is not doing His part. We cannot allow that kind of unbelief to take root in our hearts.

    My sister, keep praying. Remember, “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” (James 5:16). You have no idea how your prayers are affecting the unseen spiritual world around you, and you cannot fully see how God is working in YOU while you continue to pray. Don’t give up, and don’t lose hope. Stay close to the Lord, let His love pour through you by the Holy Spirit in you, and trust that God’s promises to us are “yes and amen” to His glory in us (2 Cor. 1:20). His glory alone is our desire and our prize. Let Him do His will, in His time, because He loves you. We love you, too, sister :) We hope you have a Merry Christmas, dear one, and are renewed in the awareness of Immanuel, God with us.

    Much love,
    Beloved by Him

    Hi. I’ve been praying about something very dear to my heart for almost five years now and I’m becoming very discouraged. When I pray about other things, God seems to answer and for that I am truly grateful but this one pray request seems to go unanswered. I was wondering if you had any advice on how to remain hopefully.
