WHY ARE MY PRAYERS NOT ANSWERED?
I always prayed, even as a child, I changed the form, I changed the style
The answers always failed for me; If God is love, how can this be?
My God is near, my prayers He hears, My prayers are mixed with heart-felt tears. My faith grows strong, I wait His choice, I know in time I will rejoice.
It took some time, the lights went on, The bells rang clear, the fog was gone.
I now saw clearly, what once was dim, My heart is filled with praise for Him.
What was it that has changed for me? What was before I could not see?
For while I pray, there is intent, Already God the answered sent
Now it is clear to me as day, that when I come to Him to pray.
His answers come as one or two, So, this is what I always do
My answer comes through those I know, or by a resource I can show,
There right before my eyes they gleam, I know I’m part of His vast team
So, this is how I pray today, God will direct and show the way.
Through people or through things so near, My prayers are answered, have no fear.
