Why Doesn’t God Answer Our Prayers? | Message 5
The message, Why Doesn’t God Answer Our Prayers?, considers the differences between answered prayers and the unanswered ones and what made the difference.
We seek God’s help repeatedly for needs like; problem relationships, financial difficulties, salvation for loved ones or healing for those seriously ill, and if God fails to act, our normal response is to pray more fervently and more often. Maybe we should try to understand God better and consider why God answers some of our prayers and not others?

This video presentation is similar to a screen saver that automatically advances with celestial images of the heavens from the Hubble, NASA, STScI and James Webb sites. They all have an accompanying scripture, or portions which can help illustrate Psalm 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork”.
This series on the Glory of God was originally introduced with only ten Hubble slides shown on a large screen while fifteen verses were being read. It lasted about ten minutes. When completed there will be around 400 images in the Video Slideshow with related scriptures.
