(Un)answered Prayer


God has editing rights over our prayers. He will… edit them, correct them, bring them in line with His will and then hand them back to us to be resubmitted. ~Stephen Crotts

Last week, God granted and answered my prayer. To let my brother go into apprenticeship or on-the-job training (which I even asked my fiancee to pray the same) since it is one of the requirements in his studies for communications engineering. Wednesday night, my prayer was granted.  My brother was accepted and got into one of the leading telco company in our country. However, I would say that some of my prayers like to make rain stop from falling since my fiancee have their company outing did not stop as what I’ve expected (though I must admit, I can’t verify from my fiancée how heavy the rain was at that time). But one thing caught my attention which I got from Finest Quotes that made this post to have that opening statement.

For sure God “did listen and hear” my prayers but somehow it is not aligned with His will that He simply allow the rain to pour down… Disappointed, I still prayed, thinking of possible obstacles that resulted to unanswered prayer.  And then I realized… He wants me to depend more on him, making me more humble, continuously changing my perspective from my own to His.

Before I conclude my posts, I think it’s best to share below links I visited in understanding prayer.
