Why doesn't God answer some of our prayers?


There are many conditions on getting your prayers answered. God will not answer prayer that is against His will or His laws. You cannot ask God for the sun to turn cold, nor can you ask for something rolling off the table to float or fall upward. Even Jesus didn't get everything he wanted. On the night before He died He prayed, "O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me" (Matt. 26:39). God may also not answer your prayer because you ask God to take away things that He doesn't want removed. As an illustration, God promises trouble to every person (Job 5:7), so we should pray for wisdom in the midst of our troubles for how to solve them or live with them (James 1:5). God may not answer you prayer to take away your troubles because there are other lessons to be learned. Sometimes you don't get your prayers answered because you quit praying too soon. Perhaps God began answering your prayer, but you did not continue asking, so you did not get the answer. Other times they don't get answered because we don't have faith (Mark 11:24). Sometimes we don't ask in Jesus' name (John 14:14), don't abide in the Word of God (John 15:7), or don't pray according to His will (1 John 5:14-15). -Elmer Towns

What should my attitude be in prayer? How to pray.

Prayer is communication with God, requiring neither wisdom nor experience. The weakest believer, like a simple child, can talk to the heavenly Father. As you commune with God in prayer, thank Him in advance for answering your prayers. Let Him know that you are confident that He will answer you according to His will. Praise Him for who He is, for what He has done for you , and for what He is going to do in the future. - Elmer Towns

What does the Holy Spirit do?

Well, being without the internet doesn't stop one from reading. So here are some nuggets on the Holy Spirit from the past few days...
What does the Holy Spirit do?
When the Holy Spirit convicts, He will take away the blindness of Satan and cause people to see the nature and work of God. The purpose of the indwelling Holy Spirit is to guide, teach, empower, impart the love of God to the believer, strengthen, and give assurance of salvation. "Do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation (wastefulness); but be filled with the Spirit" (Eph. 5:18). The god of this world (the devil) blinds the mind (2 Cor. 4:4), but the Holy Spirit takes away spiritual blindness so one is able to see more clearly God's will and purpose for his or her life. -Elmer Towns

Miracles:


When you seek miracles, make sure you properly define miracles. C.S. Lewis defines miracles as "an interference in the laws of nature by supernatural power." When most people think of miracles, they think "sign-miracles." They think of God's interference in the laws of nature. However, every Christian has experienced the miraculous: conversion, answers to prayer, divine indwelling, devine insight into Scripture, divine leading, and divine protection. -Elmer Towns


What happens to me at death?

What happens to me at death?


According to Genesis 35:18, your soul and body seperate: "as her soul was departing (for she died)." Angels take/escort you to heaven (Luke 16:22), and you immediately enter the presence of God: "... to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord" (2 Cor. 5:8). Your earthly body decays.
