Every prayer is answered. Heaven’s response, however, is often misinterpreted because the universe responds to the essence of your request rather than the specifics of it. Therefore, what you asked for may be delivered at a time you may not expect and in a package you may not recognize.
Be thankful that God’s answers are wiser than your answers.
If you pray for a romantic relationship, for instance, perhaps what you truly desire is to feel loved and cherished. If so, you will not realize that your prayer has been answered when you feel bathed in God’s loving presence and when family members and caring friends express how much you mean to them.
She knows Omnipotence hath heard her prayer,
And cries, “It shall be done, sometime, somewhere.”
Ophelia G. Browning
Similarly, an insatiable appetite for riches may stem from a longing for security, freedom, and higher self-esteem: qualities that must be cultivated from within, not without. A series of meditation lessons may take you there faster—and more authentically—than a can’t-miss stock tip.
Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.
