For most of my life, I have cried and the sad part of it is I have cried mostly about my pain, my hurt, the loss of a friend or loved one, the anguish in my mother’s eyes, the anger in my father’s towards me, the tears of letting a friend go, failing my exams and business. The one that tops the list is the fact that my prayers go unheard by God.
I prayed so hard with all my heart not just for myself but also for my family and I trusted God that even if He didn’t want to answer my prayer, He should answer those of my family members. We sat, prayed and hoped for great news to come from the court but to our dismay it wasn’t what we hoped for.
I heard the news while preparing dinner for my family, ‘how could it be?’ I said. ‘Life hasn’t been fair to us.’ I was heartbroken and shaken, all I could think of was prayer. So we prayed. I prayed that since there’s still some time God could change their heart and I prayed that if God answered this request, then surely He would answer mine in the nearest future.
