I am pleased with the discussion on Part 5. I would encourage those to continue to express and explain views that appear divergent in a civil manner.
But we must continue with Grieg’s book on Chapter 8, GOD’S WILL.
So in a nutshell, Pete adds 5 more answers to the question of “why unanswered prayer?”
Are you ready....here they are:
#6 God’s Best: Some prayers aren’t answered because God has got something better for us.
#7 Motive: Some prayers (even spiritual sounding ones) aren’t answered because they are, in fact, selfishly motivated.
#8 Relationship: Some prayers aren’t answered because God Himself is a greater answer than the thing we are asking for and He wants to use our sense of need to draw us into a deeper relationship with Himself.
#9 Free Will: Some prayers aren’t answered because God will not force a person to do something that he or she does not want to do.
#10 Influence: Some of our prayers aren’t yet answered because they are working gradually and not as an impersonal mechanism of forced control.
