God will allow nothing that cannot contribute toward some higher good to touch the lives of His children.

How do we cope with unanswerd Prayers?

1. Talk openly to God about your disappointment and disillusionment.

2. Seize the opportunity to grow.

3. Recognize that an unanswered prayer might be a blessing in disguise.

4. Realize that your unanswered prayer might benefit someone else.

5. Consult past evidence.

Sometimes God asks us to hold on until the Great Day when it will all make sense.  Ellen G. White penned these reassuring words:  “The things hard to be understood will then find explanation….Where our finite minds discovered only confusion and broken promises, we shall see the most perfect and beautiful harmony.”  In the world to come, “We shall see that our….disappointed hopes have been among our greatest blessings.”
