From my book Encounter with Life When it comes to the prayer, a general opinion is that God may or may not hear our prayer and that it is God’s prerogative to answer or not to answer. This may be partially true but definitely this is not the whole truth. Remember, He is a just God and will not lie or cheat or break His promise or turn from His own Word. He does not back-off from his word. God has expressed his attitude and character in the Bible.
