Psalm 22:1-2 NIV
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far
from saving me, so far from the words of my groaning? O my God, I
cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, and am not silent.
God has 3 answers to our prayers: YES, NO, and WAIT.
Isaiah 49:14-16 TPT
But Zion has said, “Yahweh has forsaken me. My Lord has forgotten
me—I’m all alone.” Yahweh responds, “But how could a loving
mother forget her nursing child and not deeply love the one she
bore? Even if there is a mother who forgets her child, I could never,
no never, forget you. Can’t you see? I have carved your name on the
palms of my hands!
“Every difficulty in prayer comes from one fatal flaw: that of praying as
if God were absent.” — St. Teresa of Avila
Exodus 3:7-8 NIV
The Lord said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt.
I have heard them CRYING out because of their slave drivers, and I
am concerned about their suffering. So I have come down to rescue
them…

Clean Heart
1 John 3:22 NLT
We will receive from him whatever we ask because we obey him and
do the things that please him.
Unanswered prayer begins with the ASSUMPTION that just because
I ask for it, God is obligated to give it to me.
1 Peter 3:7 NLT
You husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with
understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are,
but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you
should so your prayers will not be hindered.
Why should God listen to my words if I don’t obey His?

James 4:2 NIV
You do not have, because you do not ask God.
“The greatest tragedy in life is not unanswered prayer, but unoffered
prayer.” — F. B. Meyer
James 4:2-3 NIV
You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do
not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may
spend what you get on your pleasures.
I have to want the GLORY of the GIVER more than I want the
GOODNESS of the GIFT.
James 1:6-7 NIV
When you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who
doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That
person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.

Matthew 26:37-39 MSG
Taking along Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he plunged into an
agonizing sorrow. Then he said, “This sorrow is crushing my life out.
Stay here and keep vigil with me.” Going a little ahead, he fell on his
face, praying, “My Father, if there is any way, get me out of this. But
please, not what I want. You, what do you want?”
Matthew 26:42 MSG
Again he prayed, “My Father, if there is no other way than this,
drinking this cup to the dregs, I’m ready. Do it your way.”
I trust Your heart even when I can’t see Your hand.
Matthew 27:46 NIV
About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli,
Eli, lemasabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have
you forsaken me?”).
Psalm 22 NIV
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so
far from saving me, so far from my cries of anguish? My God, I cry
out by day, but you do not answer, by night, but I find no rest. Yet you
are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the one Israel praises. In you
our ancestors put their trust; they trusted and you delivered them. To
you they cried out and were saved; in you they trusted and were not
put to shame. But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by
everyone, despised by the people. All who see me mock me; they
hurl insults, shaking their heads. “He trusts in the Lord,” they say, “let
the Lord rescue him. Let him deliver him, since he delights in him” …
Dogs surround me, a pack of villains encircles me; they pierce my
hands and my feet … They divide my clothes among them and cast
lots for my garment. But you, Lord, do not be far from me. You are my
strength; come quickly to help me … You who fear the Lord, praise
him! All you descendants of Jacob, honor him! Revere him, all you
descendants of Israel! All the ends of the earth will remember and
turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations will bow down
before him, for dominion belongs to the Lord and he rules over the
nations … Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told
about the Lord. They will proclaim his righteousness, declaring to a
people yet unborn: He has done it!
