Description: We love stories of God working wonders in response to humble prayers–but what do we do when our prayers seemingly go “unanswered”, or God doesn’t quite respond in the way we had hoped He would? 

If you’ve been bringing your requests and petitions before Him, but feel like God has yet to turn your life around, or bad things are still happening and you’re stuck with the same set of circumstances, here are three instances from the Bible that might help you see your “unanswered” prayers in a different light. 

Jesus, Paul and Jeremiah praying.
