God guarantees that every prayer is answered. (See Matthew 7: 7-11). This does not mean, however, that He will necessarily give us just what we are asking for. Sometimes the things we ask for are not for our good, even though they seem to us most desirable. Because He is our Father, with a father's loving concern for our welfare, God does not grant such requests. Our first prayer then should be for the acceptance of God’s will, and then pursue Him in complete honesty and ‘ask, seek and knock.
