Does God Answer Prayer at the Last Second?

Do you wait until the last second to finish things? I did this semester. I ordered my books for grad school and they came in the day before class started…

I am also the type of person to put off filling up my gas tank until the very last second.

Sometimes I think God answers prayer at the last second…. But unlike me He’s not frantic; 

He knows exactly what He’s doing. 

Here are a few reasons He may not be answering your prayers:

According to Psalm 121:7 God may be keeping you from harm.

The Lord will keep you from all harm—

 he will watch over your life;

the Lord will watch over your coming and going

both now and forevermore.

Psalm 121:7

You coud be asking with wrong motives like what James talks about in 4:3.

“When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.”

-James 4:3

Proverbs 3:5-6 says to trust God, he may be teaching you and making your paths straight. 

Whatever is the reason, 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 tells us to not give up but to pray continually.

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

– 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18

No matter what know that God isn’t frantic, He loves you, and He know exactly what He is doing.
