Why has my prayer not been answered? Many people ask this question, but few may realize that their prayers have been answered. Perhaps yours, too. Strangely enough, it often happens that we receive an answer to our prayer and do not recognize it. 

Some of us have had demonstrations in our possession for weeks, or even months, and have not known it. This mistake is caused by “Outlining.”  We have unconsciously decided that the demonstration must take a particular form, and because that form does not appear, we think we have failed to receive answered prayer. 

Actually, we probably have had an even better demonstration than we expected, but for the moment we are blind to it. 

If a boy prayed for a man’s hat, because he thought it would make him look grown up, and he did not get the exact hat he had been asking for, does this mean his prayer was unanswered? Divine Wisdom knows that he could not wear that particular hat. He would get a good hat of the sort that would be useful to him. 

We often pray for things for which we are not really prepared. But, when we pray with faith, what we receive does not matter, since Creative Intelligence will send us the thing that we really need. 

We must seek God first, with faith in answered prayer. We must seek God for God’s sake. Being truly in our connection, our demonstrations will take care of themselves. 

This new year, make it a positive habit to stay connected and then watch your prosperity grow in leaps and bounds into demonstrations you never could imagine possible. 

Affirmation: “I will be glad in the Lord, always.”
