Does God Answer Prayers?

On Thursday, the day of Obama’s acceptance speech, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. Regardless, of the fact that James Dobson group was praying for rain. His follower, Stuart Shepard, made a request that Christians pray for “abundant rain, torrential rain … flood-advisory rain.” He adds, “I’m talking about umbrella-ain’t-gonna-help-you rain … swamp-the-intersections rain” at Invesco Field during the exact time of his speech.

Shepard’s prayers were answered. He received the type of rain that he described in his prayer. Hurricane Gustav's arrival in the Gulf was the cause of delay with the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Sometimes, you must be careful with your prayer requests.

God always answers prayers. As the Negro spiritual says, “he may not come when you want him, but he’s always right on time.”
