Have you ever felt like your prayers are not being answered? I know I have.
Often though, our prayers ARE being answered, but not in our own timing. Naturally, we hope for an answer *now*, whereas the Lord may have something else in mind. Perhaps, we are not ready for His answer. Or perhaps, there is something that we need to do first for His plan to be revealed to us. All I know is that our Lord listens and DOES answer us always. Sometimes, though, it comes as a surprise.
Remember, "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened..." (Matthew 7:7).
So to the girl reading this: If you have been praying, hoping, and waiting for something but have not yet had your prayers answered by our Father, do not lose hope. Your prayers have been heard and He will answer you. In fact, His answer may be coming sooner than you think. Remain with your heart open and your trust fully in Him and in His timing.
