Unanswered Prayer

What is an unanswered prayer,
His silence meaning He does not care?
His power greater than imaginings vein,
His love greater than any king's reign?

The fervent prayer of a righteous man,
shines before the Lord's right hand.
His answers coming from His throne,
even when we feel lost and alone.

Our prayers never go unheard,
when our prayer becomes a spoken word.
For even "no"  is an answer you see,
when it seems He has not heard you or me.

So when doubt steals your deepest faith,
know that in heaven an answer waits,
to be delivered to the one who sent the request,
and put your greatest fears to rest.
Psalm 33:20-23 We wait in hope for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield.  In him our
hearts rejoice,  for we trust in his holy name.  
May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord,
even as we put our hope in you."
