What if all we got was what we prayed for? Would your prayer time increase and have more thought put into it? God gives us so much that we just take for granted and call normal. It is often when we lose something that we see our needs from a new perspective.
What you already have is on someone else's prayer list. Prayer is the most important conversation of your day. It is not just a request line but also a time to say thank you to the Giver of everything. 'The value of persistent prayer is not that He will hear us but that we will hear Him.'
So if you're bitter about unanswered prayers, maybe God is waiting for you to be thankful and useful with what you've been given thus far. Sometimes an unanswered prayer is the best blessing you could get. Trust in Him, not yourself.
