Praise God When Prayers Unanswered

Did you know that unanswered prayer is a call for praise? When we have prayed and there is no answer its time to get out the guitar. Its time to open up the hymn book and give God praise.

That's what the Bible says. Psalm 22:2,3 "O my God, I cry by day, but You do not answer;
And by night, but I have no rest. Yet You are holy, O You who are enthroned upon the praises of Israel."

That's right, when no answer comes start praising. God is enthroned on our praise. He rules when we praise. Praise is not only celebration but is also creates a highway of holiness.

God looks with favor on those who have faith. Faith is only possible when there is need. When there is unanswered prayer we have a need to praise God. This praise maintains our hope, which gives faith substance.


  1. "Praise God When Prayers Unanswered"

    Amen - if we only praise God when He answers prayer then we perhaps miss great opportunities to show God we believe He knows best.

  2. Thanks,

    I want to keep track of what I pray for and if God has shown me something that is His will I want to stay humble and find out why its not answered.
