The reason Why we must place our faith in the way God answers our prayers instead of on our prayers themselves, is because our perspective is soooooo limited. I often say: I barely remember what happened yesterday, am not too sure of what is going on right now, and have no idea what will happen tomorrow. Why oh why would God choose to answer our prayers based on such a limited way of viewing life? That would NOT be what is best for us. So as we pray, we choose to trust God’s Eternal viewpoint and how He decides to answer our prayers, whether that is Direct, Deny, Delay or Different, we can be sure it is what will lead to the most fulfilling life for us and all involved. We can be sure of this because God is a Good, Good Father!
