Does All Prayer Get Answered? (Consult this Flow Chart)

I preached on Matthew 7:7-12–the “Ask, Seek, Knock” passage–and dealt with the problem of prayers that don’t get answered, especially in light of Jesus’ promise that “everyone who asks receives.” What do we do with that promise? How do we reconcile that with our experience?

Working with my wife Jess, I made up this flow chart about how and why all true prayers get answered–and why some of our prayers don’t. I hope its helpful to you and your prayer life.
