Conflict With Unanswered Prayer

Erwin W. Lutzer | August 31, 1997

Selected highlights from this sermon

When God seems to shut the door on our prayers we tend to get frustrated. But God isn’t being silent; He may be saying, “not yet.”

David wanted to a build a temple for God, but God surprised him with a “no.” The Lord revealed that He had a better plan—David’s son was to take up the task of building the temple, and David’s kingdom and throne would never end. So though God may say “no” to your prayer requests, it may be that He has something bigger in mind for you.
