I’ve been a Christian for a long time, and I started out praying a lot, but it just seemed like my prayers weren’t being answered. I began to think that maybe only special people get their prayers answered—and maybe I wasn’t spiritual enough. I just stopped praying for things and direction, so I wouldn’t feel bad at not getting what I asked...

My life is very hard. None of my prayers get answered. Does God have it in for me? Question and Answer I don't know how hard your life is, but you must have good reasons for describing your life as being very hard. It is harder than it should be, at least when compared to the average person's experiences. However, your life (mine too) cannot...

Why are parables concentrated in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, but we do not find any in John?

Why are we commanded “to love the LORD your” God with all our heart, soul, and strength (Deut. 6:4)? Question and Answer This should remind us of the importance of immediate context.

Does God listen to crowds more readily than to a few? What I mean is, are the prayers of, say, five thousand believers five times as effective as the prayers of one thousand? Question and Answer I am inclined to say probably not. Jesus said, "If two of you on earth agree about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven"...

When I was diagnosed as suffering from clinical depression, I asked the therapist, “Why does not God intervene?” She said, “He does! The staff and I are His intervention.” What do you think? Question and Answer I am inclined to agree with her. God works through people, and if she and her staff helped you, as you clearly imply in your letter,...

As He was being crucified, Jesus kept saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34). Was that prayer for those people only, or does it still apply to those who are ignorant of the Word? Question and Answer The context suggests that Jesus was praying for His executioners and for the crowd that tagged...

I feel that God doesn’t answer my prayers. How can I pray in a more effective way? Question and Answer First, we are to pray according to God’s will (1 John 5:14). Second, we are to live in close fellowship with Christ, not allowing unconfessed sin in our lives (John 15:7; 1 John 1:9). Third, we are to pray with faith and trust (James 1:5–8).
