Why some of your prayers don’t get answered


There are times in life people always want or need stuff and they pray and expect these things to happen and when it doesn’t happen, they feel down  or that things are not working out the way they desire it and most Nigerians love prayers, they will literally pray their way through any and everything. This is not to say that prayer is a bad thing but sometimes it is used to cover off laziness and responsibilities. 

You see physical realm is governed by its own law and these law cannot be broken but they could be altered one way or the other. I have learnt so far that if you want a blessing you have to be ready to receive it and most are not prepared for what they asked for.
So you want to be a billionaire? You want a multimillionaire business? Are you ready for the management and workload that comes with it?
Do you have the wisdom, skills, education  and energy to handle the business?
Do you see why sometimes, you cannot get what you pray for?
It is not that God or the universe cannot give you what you pray for but it is usually because you cannot handle what you ask for.  Certain things will only navigate towards those who have what its takes to handle it and most importantly they will be responsible and accountable to it. In my experience, I’ve discovered that the truest blessing you can ever ask for is wisdom.  Wisdom will give you clarity and tell you what you need to do in order to receive that multimillionaire idea or business.


Bible citation
Proverb 4: 7 says ‘getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do’
Proverb 3:13-20 ‘joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding.
For wisdom is more profitable than silver, and her wages are better than gold.
Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. She offers you long life in her right hand, and riches and honor in her left. She will guide you down delightful paths;all her way are satisfying. Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her; happy are those who hold her tightly. By wisdom the Lord founded the earth; by understanding he created  the heavens, by his knowledge the deep fountains of the earth burst forth, and the dew settles beneath the night sky.’
  Proverb 8:11-12 ‘wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life.
If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit. If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer’
