Jesus is addressing a question that is on the minds of a lot of people today. Does God answer our prayers?
Who here has pets or kids that wake you up at some early hours of the morning because they need something? As a good parent, you would get up and attend to their needs. If your child asks for some bread will you give him a stone? Of course not. If we ask God for something will he refuse? Of course not. He knows what we need before we even ask.
To ask if God answers our prayers is a legitimate question. There are times when doubt takes over. God has an answer for us. Believe in Him and honor His name and you will see the face of God, and bask in His healing rays. Ask Him yourself today in prayer.
God, do you answer our prayers? Better still, ask family members this question when you come together to pray.
