Why hasn't God answered my prayers?

If God was suppose to provide what we ask for, like the Bible said, (seek and you will find...), why didn't He answer my prayers? My first prayer: I've asked for a house and car and for friends to quit ditching me. These never happened. My very last prayer: "Please don't let me get canned in spite of the horrible things I said to Mel* and the pole I physically assaulted. Please don't let it be any worse than a d-day. Please make Mel* forgive me ." Well? Look what happened! I also prayed for Him to change other ppl who I clearly wronged me. I don't remember all of them, but they still haven't changed. How could this happen like that?


Perhaps this god of yours also has an anger management problem and is managing to control his temper by not responding to your pleas.

You might not be very happy with the response should he allow himself to get ticked off enough to throw a fist at the proverbial pole you call life.

@Butrflynet,
actually, i threw my fist at an actual pole at the fitting room while on the clock, which is what they canned me for. It was from Mel, my coworker, pissing me off.

Oh Lord
Won't ya buy me
A Mercedes-Benz
My friends all drive Porches
I must make amends
Worked hard all my lifetime
No help from my friends
So, oh Lord
Won't ya buy me
A color tee-vee
Dialing for Dollars
Is trying to reach me
I wait for delivery
Each day until three . . .

This makes it sound like it was Mel's fault. Your anger is nobody's fault but your own.

@Setanta,
I didn't say it was her fault nor did I say what I did was right. All I said is I was pissed with her.

DD22.
Never willingly been in a church- accept when in Europe, then it was only to look at the marvelous architecture and the touristy thing, was taught a bit of religion at school in England but preferred Alice in Wonderland, have seen a bit of the world and have worked bloody hard all my life ( started off manual Labor)
am not well educated, but have manged with my three sons help over the last 24 years before I retired--- to leave them with a very prosperous business and for me, a generous retirement income. Guesses what!! I never prayed to no God-Goddess and the only worshiping I ever did was to my family. so perhaps you would be successful in your life if you were to try doing the same sort of thing.

@dirrtydozen22,
The official cause of death was an overdose of heroin; in essence, a very long and successful suicide attempt.

@Butrflynet,
I'd rather have God take me than take my own life and go to hell. When will that happen?

Dear God,
Hope you got the letter,
And I pray you can make it better down here.
I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer,
But all the people that you made in your image,
See them starving on their feet,
'Cause they don't get enough to eat
From God,
I can't believe in you.

Dear God,
sorry to disturb you,
but I feel that I should be heard loud and clear.
We all need a big reduction in amount of tears,
And all the people that you made in your image,
See them fighting in the street,
'Cause they can't make opinions meet,
About God,
I can't believe in you.

Did you make disease, and the diamond blue?
Did you make mankind after we made you?
And the devil too!

Dear God,
Don't know if you noticed,
But your name is on a lot of quotes in this book.
Us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look,
And all the people that you made in your image,
Still believing that junk is true.
Well I know it ain't and so do you,
Dear God,
I can't believe in,
I don't believe in,

I won't believe in heaven and hell.
No saints, no sinners,
No Devil as well.
No pearly gates, no thorny crown.
You're always letting us humans down.
The wars you bring, the babes you drown.
Those lost at sea and never found,
And it's the same the whole world 'round.
The hurt I see helps to compound,
that the Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
Is just somebody's unholy hoax,
And if you're up there you'll perceive,
That my heart's here upon my sleeve.
If there's one thing I don't believe in...

It's you,

Dear God.

@djjd62,
He exists. He just doesn't always do miracles in people's lives like ppl proclaim Him to do.
