Why haven’t more of my prayers been answered?

Let’s be clear.

I don’t deserve for my prayers to be answered.

But Jesus took what I deserve. This is the gospel. He lived the life I should have lived and died the death I should have died. He was treated as I deserve so that I could be treated as he deserves.

Jesus deserves for His prayers to be answered.

So pray.

Pray the kinds of prayers Jesus would pray.

Pray like you believe the gospel.

Why haven’t more of my prayers been answered? Because I have often prayed more like a doubting, condemned criminal under law than an expectant, beloved son under grace. Sons believe their Father.

If you abide in me and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. -John 15:7
