Why Prayers Often Go Unanswered

Released September 21, 2021 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


There are some intensely bold statements in the bible about the effective power of our prayers. God’s Word calls Christians to pray consistently with the expectation of Him answering our prayers and creating shifts according to what we are praying. There is no mistaking that prayer is one of the most vital tools and gifts that exists in the Church. Why then do our prayers sometimes go unanswered? What are we to make of those undeniable moments when something we have been praying into fails to come to pass? In this episode of Mavericks & Misfits, Jeff walks the listener through one of the primary reasons why God sometimes does not respond favorably to the things for which we are praying. He is no Genie in a bottle that pops out to grant our every wish and whim. There is the clear reality that sometimes we are asking for good things from God and He does not move in our favor. What is the reason for this? Sometimes it is the hardest answer for us to hear. But we NEED to hear it in this season. Additional resources are available at TransformingTruth.org
