It's a question we've all faced at one time or another. Why isn't God answering my prayers? We may seem to be doing everything right—going to church, fulfilling our callings, striving to strengthen our families, and, of course, praying. But still the answer doesn't come. If there are no serious sins blocking out the whisperings of the Spirit, why then do the windows of heaven still seem to be closed?
In his wise, conversational style, best-selling author Gerald N. Lund offers suggestions and solutions for all who are anxiously hoping to hear the voice of the Lord in their lives. He helps us to approach this timeless question with new perspective and insight that will help us realize the ways the Lord is answering our questions or the reasons He might not be—yet.
It could be that we just don't recognize God's answer when it comes. Perhaps we are unable to hear the still, small voice amid the commotion and distractions of life or are struggling with feelings of anxiety, fear, and doubt. Or maybe we haven't yet put in adequate effort to receive the answer God wants for us. Whatever the case, if you have felt out of tune with heavenly communication, you are not alone. Using real-life examples and expertise garnered from a lifetime of teachings, Gerald Lund turns our desperate plea—Why isn't God answering me?—into a question of hope that will ultimately draw down the powers of heaven in our behalf.
