So what if He still rejects your request? What if you plead, believe, trust, and pursue yet still do not receive? He must have a reason, although you might not receive an explanation this side of heaven. And the next time you have a request, pray again with faith and perseverance. You might receive what you request this time, and regardless of whether you do or not you will have the opportunity to grow in faith and in your ability to pray without ceasing (1 Thes 5:17).
