Full Question

If a person asks in prayer for assistance but no answer comes, should the person just give up on the prayers?

Answer

We all like our prayers answered yesterday. But the Lord knows the best time. He’s the only one who really knows what time it is. To keep praying is to keep trusting him. To keep trusting him is to keep loving him. St. Monica spent 30 years praying for her son’s conversion. When he finally converted, he became a great saint. But all the while she had been praying, she herself became a saint. Don’t give up on God.

    Jesus Himself gives a perfect answer to this question in Luke 11:5-10: And he said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend to whom he goes at midnight and says, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, for a friend of mine has arrived at my house from a journey and I have nothing to offer him,’ and he says in reply from within, ‘Do not bother me; the door has already been locked and my children and I are already in bed. I cannot get up to give you anything.’ I tell you, if he does not get up to give him the loaves because of their friendship, he will get up to give him whatever he needs because of his persistence.”

    “And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened.to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened “
