STOP AND THINK – The greatest tragedy in life is not unanswered prayer, but unoffered prayer. (F. B. Meyer, 19th-20th century English pastor and evangelist)

People sometimes complain that God hasn’t answered their prayers. In might just be that they didn’t understand the answer. Expecting a yes, they didn’t recognize a no, so they think God didn’t answer. As Meyer says, however, the greater problem is that we too seldom seek God in prayer, not just to get something but merely to enjoy a personal relationship with Him.

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. (Colossians 4:2)
