Luke 22:42 42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” (NIV)

 Jesus didn’t want to face the cross.  He prayed intently for the Father to make another way for us to be forgiven of our sins and reborn into eternal life.  He prayed so hard he sweated drops of blood.  I’ve never prayed that intensely for anything.  He did, yet His Father said no.  Sometimes God does say No.  No is just as much an answer to our prayers as Yes is.  Actually, sometimes it is even more of an answer.  We can’t see tomorrow.  We seldom look through spiritual eyes.  Our prayers are often from a self-motivated fleshly desire.  When we don’t get what we pray for it doesn’t mean God didn’t answer.  We miss the answer because we are only listening and looking for the answer our flesh wants.  Jesus submitted to the will of the Father.  When we pray, it’s okay to ask for anything we want to ask but we must be willing to trust our Father Who knows what lays ahead of us and all our needs.  He loves us even more than we love ourselves.  He might say yes.  He might say no.  He might say wait awhile.  All are answers to our prayers.  He always hears.  He always answers.  We just don’t always listen or accept His answer.  Let us learn to trust and praise the Father no matter what His answers are to our prayers.  He is the one Who holds our future in the palm of His hand
