For about 5 -6 years now, I have been praying for the same thing. I have said countless novenas to every Saint imaginable, prayed rosaries and have said every prayer to Him that there is. There have been times that I’ve been on my knees begging and pleading. Despite it all, He still tells me no.
After many many many years, the answer has always been no.
It is still currently a “no”
Trying to maintain my faith and my relationship with Him is very difficult when my prayer requests continues to end negatively.
I’ve watched many people that I know that have prayed for the same exact thing and have gotten it quickly. What have they done that I haven’t? Why do they get it when I can’t?
I am very discouraged and feel like God just isn’t listening.
This evening, I’ve done some research on this topic and I came across this article https://bible.org/article/when-god-says-no-reasons-unanswered-prayer
A lot of what it states does make sense to me. However, some of it doesn’t necessarily apply to my particular prayer request. I guess, maybe, I’m just trying to find some answers, comfort and encouragement.
The only reasonable answer that I can come up with is that I’m not ready for it. I feel that I am but maybe I’m not ready as I think. Maybe there are some things that I need to accomplish within myself first?
Today, I’ve been doing a lot of self reflection and praying. I feel as if I’m meant to go on a small spiritual journey and rediscover myself. Hopefully, I’ll be able to gain more insights that will allow me to grow more spiritually. Additionally, I also feel that I need to be asking God to show me what it is that I need to learn in order to have him finally say yes.
Honestly, I’m still a little pissed off at God right now. I know that I will get over it but I just can’t speak to Him directly right now. I have found some of my favorite novenas and chaplets to my favorite Saints that I will start praying again-asking them to help with reconnecting me back.
If anyone has any experience, strength or hope that they can share, I would certainly love to hear it!
