Many prayers go unanswered because we beg God to do things Our way. We interpret such verses as Matthew 7:7 & 8, Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened unto you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and the one who knocks, the door will be opened, to mean whatever is on my mind I will automatically get. An so we ask and ask and ask until we give up. The next step is either God doesn’t care or else we don’t deserve an answer. Many fall into this trap and stay stuck.
However, if you take what Jesus said in context with the Bible, plus study His life as an example, He always did what the Father wanted Him to do. His complete focus centered around doing the Father’s Will. For an example, read Matthew 26:39. Therefore, most prayers for our will to be done, wastes both our time and God’s. Instead, we need to seek to fit ourselves into His Will. Those He answers.
Salvation is always His will.
