    One thought on “When God Doesn't Answer Your Prayer

    1. Lori on said:

      It should not have taken me this long to read this very short book. I picked it up and put it down way too frequently, so lost a bit of continuity. However, I did find it to be a very comforting, encouraging and thought-provoking book. It is not as comprehensive as Prayer by Philip Yancey, yet it is very down-to-earth and practical written by someone who lived through a very big prayer not being answered in his life.

    2. Nova Fiana on said:

      Everyone struggled with unanswered prayers. What I have learned for myself is that prayer excavates the heart- who is your idol? Unanswered prayers make me to be more aware of my needs, my weaknessess, my inadequacies and my sinfulness. It drives me to God and help me to be more attentive to what God is trying to use this struggle to transform me. Few of the many quotes I love from the book:This is our comfort, because God answers every prayer; for either he gives what we pray for, or something [...]

      One of the Best Books of Prayer!!!This is a book for every christian. If you are a new believer or have years in church, this book is for you. Mr Sittser answer one of the most difficult question in christian history, why my preyers doesn't answer?

    4. Rick on said:

      This book has changed the way I think about and approach my prayer life. It is a wonderful book that provided me exactly what it promises - a greater faith and a deeper hope. Highly recommended!

    5. Zach Koenig on said:

      One of the great mysteries of Christianity is prayer. Despite the fact that Christians are praying many, many prayers every single day, terrible things still happen both to the world and even the people we care about the most. Thus, one of the biggest stumbling blocks towards people fully accepting Christ as their savior is the fact that so many prayers seemed to go unanswered. In this book, Jerry Sittser tackles that issue head-on.Obviously, a book like this does not contain "concrete answers". [...]

      Ever send a question through email and get no response? Well, they say no response these days is the new "no." And for some reason, I don't like it. It seems cold and discourteous. But I know that's not always the case. I'm guilty of the same thing. The other day I received a solicitation for money. I felt awkward to have to give a direct "no." So, I didn't respond. The title and language of this book makes me think of a God who doesn't respond. The book was a nice introduction to prayer in ligh [...]

      Made me think about things. Theologically, I agree with some of it, disagree with other parts of it. An interesting read.

    8. Aronkai on said:

      I "fast-read" this book (paperback edition). I liked the idea about prayer as an epic journey, how it is OK to be mad at God, and how prayer changes us. Some quotes:"Unanswered prayer is not the end of the story, not for me and not for you. It can send us on an epic journey that will lead us to places we could never imagine. I will be a hard journey; it will also be a wonderful journey." (page 42)"Unanswered prayer breaks us, deepens us, exposes us, and transform us." (page 57)"God can take our [...]

      Many thoughtful and helpful insights into situations when God doesn’t answer our prayers, including: :- “All prayer is surrendering to God because God is supremely wonderful and glorious and good;”- “The truth is always in the tension between God as divine and God as human, between God’s hidden will and God’s revealed will, between God’s plan for history and the prayers we say that shape the history God has planned;” and,- the quotation from Søren Kierkegaard, “This is our com [...]

      This was a fantastic book on unanswered prayer but more than that it was one of the best Christian books I've ever read. I read it through tears in less than a day. It gave me great peace and insight. Some and in fact most of my prayers do get answered but a few important heartfelt prayers have yet to receive an answer, so that's what made me pick up this book. The author's answer on what to do when your prayers don't seem to get answered was a surprise to me but it makes sense. I highly recomme [...]

      There are many books out there on this very topic and I found this to be one of the best. Unfortunately it was a library book and I didn't have time to finish it before I realized it was two days overdue. Lots of quotes and words of wisdom that you will want to mark up and refer to again and again so buy a copy, don't get it our of the library. It's a good book with a lot to digest but I'm still left needing an answer to the big question.

    12. Todd Miles on said:

      A fine book, written by a mature and godly man, whose faith has been tested in the laboratory of life. The book does not overreach or settle for insulting platitudes when sifting through the difficult questions the book addresses. It is theologically solid and manages to be both helpful to the pilgrim and honoring to his Lord. I liked it.

    13. lori on said:

      Of course they want (healing) and probably always will. But they want something else even more. They want to know God; they want their lives to glorify God. God wants to change us to his liking, not to change the world to our liking. Prayers are not tools for doing or getting but for being and becoming.Prayer of "give me"Prayer of "make me"

    14. Jeff S on said:

      An easy read that helps a small Bible study church group to open up and discuss what unanswered prayers plague their own lives. The author even responded to me after I emailed him upon completion of the book. A+

    15. Erica on said:

      Sittser effectively discusses blocks to effective prayers and what a person can do about them. It was just what I needed to read and it spoke to me clearly with logical arguments and plenty of Biblical examples.

    16. Sandie on said:

      Okay - he's an honest voice to listen to, as he has dealt with such pain. But just okay.

    17. Jonathan on said:

      Honest, real life reflection on prayer. Sittser writes comfortably about the reality of unanswered prayer and encourages to keep praying as we may be changed and ultimately, God glorified.

    18. Jonathan P. on said:

      One of the most honest, authentic account of prayer that i have read.

    19. Diane on said:

      I think this is a great book for dealing with unanswered prayer (one of the profound difficulties with Christianity). I found this to be a great comfort.

    20. Nicole on said:

      The author seriously deals with this painful question. He doesn't offer cliche's but rather takes the reader on a thoughtful journey, encouraging you to continue in your faith.

    21. Timothy Bosso on said:

      Fantastic book about prayer, how to pray, why we should pray, and expectations of our prayers. Great insight.

    22. Wade on said:

      This is a great book on prayer. It’s biblical as well as being very raw and honest.

    23. DrJenni on said:

      Good points of view on why things don't always go our wayeven when we pray in earnest.
