But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord.
At an acceptable time, O God,
in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness
The problem with humans is that we had gotten use to instant things–instant coffee, instant noodles, instant fiancée and all that is why sometimes life is lost with just a wink of the eye because we do not have the habit of waiting and persisting.
God has three answers to our prayers–YES, NO. WAIT. If our prayers were granted, then we are good in persuading God somehow. Haha. (Excellent convincing power!) If He said NO, it doesn’t mean that He doesn’t hear us. All of our requests will all past and enter His open ears. Unanswered prayers unlocked the door to something far better than that we are asking. God answers WAIT because He wants us to learn the art of being patient, persistent, enduring, and trusting. Great things come to those who wait.
His thoughts are higher than ours. Just trust him and allow His will to happen. With that, do not hate God for not granting our requests in an instant. Never cease praying!
