Have you ever had a prayer that seemed to go unanswered and you wondered, “Does God even listen to us?” Sisters, Martha and Mary prayed fervently for Jesus to heal their sick brother and yet he ended up dying. I’m sure they had all kinds of questions for Jesus’ lack of response to the cries of their hearts.
But sometimes God’s answers to our prayers achieve greater, more eternal purposes in order to bring others to faith in Jesus Christ. Regardless of the outcome, we can be confident of this, God welcomes us before his throne with grace and confidence and always listens to us when we call. Always!
