“All prayers are not answered with a yes, in part because so many of them are counter to the nature of God’s laws and to the mind of Christ; then, too some ‘prayer’ is not really prayer. James 5:17 has a curious expression in the Greek; speaking of Elijah, James says, ‘In prayer he prayed.’ Halfheartedness and insincerity cannot characterize true prayer.”
“We must be careful about assuming that God is testing us or others when prayers are not answered.”
“The best we can do is to pray in trust and confidence.”
FROM ‘THE DOCTRINE OF PRAYER’ by T. W. Hunt pp. 81 & 82
