How to Pray When It Feels Like God Isn't Listening

Have you ever felt as though God weren't listening to you? Have you asked Father one question 100 different ways, hoping at some point He will answer you? I've been asking God a question, and since July, He has been saying to me, "I have given you more than enough. You have everything you need."

I thought to myself, He still hasn't answered my question. I wanted directions and clarity that I could understand. I was looking for something literal. After wrestling with this for at least a week, I finally realized that everything I'm asking Father is in what He has presented to me already. If I don't grasp what portion He has released to me at this time, I wouldn't be able to go further. He had already given me my answer. He has given it to us all. Everything I am asking Him is actually in what He has already released to me.

It all starts with receiving His love, understanding His love, embracing His love. So many of us are "believers" living in fear, doubt and disbelief. We are "Faith Walking" but mistrusting God. This lifestyle is not what God purposed for us, at all. In 2 Timothy 1:7, it reads, "For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and love, and self-control.

Look at the order of this verse carefully. His love is first. Out of His love we have power to conquer anything, to do anything, to speak His word. Then we receive a sound mind. How can we not have peace of mind while operating fully in His love? His love is an action. God will supply for every need. Father will protect you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Learn our Father's love today. His love will change your life.

There is now no condemnation to those who love God and are called according to His purpose. Believe in your heart, that His love cast out all fears. Live in the freedom He has ordained for you. Embrace His love today. Ask Him to reveal more of it to you. He will show you what His love looks like if you can't tell the difference between what the world says and what is truth.
