Isaiah 61:1-4 The Year of the Lords Favor 61 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,[2 to proclaim the year of the Lords favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, 3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.
4 They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.

THEY DONT BELIEVE GOD HEARS THEIR PRAYERS by David Wilkerson [May 19, 1931 - April 27, 2011]
Some believers get discouraged over unanswered prayers and, finally, they simply give up. They think, “Prayer doesn’t work for me and why should I pray if it doesn’t work?”
The Israelites in Isaiah’s time had the same attitude. Isaiah wrote: “They seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness . . .
they ask of me . . . they take delight in approaching to God. Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? Wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge (notice)?” (Isaiah 58:2-3).
These people were saying, “I love God. I do right and avoid sin, and until recently, I’ve been faithful to seek Him in prayer. But, you know what? He’s never answered me. So why should I continue afflicting my soul before Him?”
James writes that God doesn’t answer the prayers of those who ask for things simply to satisfy themselves: “Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts” (James 4:3). In other words: “You’re not asking for God’s will. You’re not ready to submit to whatever He wants.
Rather, you’re trying to dictate to Him those things that will satisfy your own heart.”
Our God is utterly faithful. Paul writes, “Let God be true, but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4). He is saying, “It doesn’t matter if you hear a million voices crying, Prayer doesn’t work. God doesn’t hear me! Let every man be called a liar because God’s Word stands. He is faithful to hear us!”
Jesus said, “Whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive”
(Matthew 21:22). Simply put, Christ is saying, “If you truly believe, you will be willing to wait and expect an answer from your heavenly Father. No matter how long it takes, you will hold on in faith, believing He will answer.”
“Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!”
(Psalm 31:19). “They that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing” (34:10).

“THEY DONT BELIEVE GOD HEARS THEIR PRAYERS”
Sometimes, the answer is no. I will not help you. Then, what do you do?
If God wanted it different, it would be.
Job heard no reply from God for a short time but only to have his faith tested and to be delivered from his fears !
God’s answers do come if we pay close attention and abide in him which is the hard part in a drive through world !
There are reasons why God doesn't answer prayer. For example, if we harbor ill will toward others, He can't answer our prayers.
I find in my life that sometimes we just have to wait on the Lord. Perhaps what we were praying isn't His will. I've found that by praying the Bible Scriptures that pertain to my problems, I am praying God's will back to Him.
If may not be the right time for the answer to come, or it may be He has other plans for you. But I do know, He hears our prayers.
God says in Isaiah, "How can you say the Lord can't see Your problems? How can you say the Lord can't hear your prayers? Do you really know or understand just Who He is? He's the God of creation, the Everlasting Lord.
Wait on the Lord. He will lead you in the right direction if you draw near to Him.
