Francis Chan on Unaswered Prayer

This past Sunday, on the tenth anniversary of 9/11, I preached a sermon dealing with (among other things) the fact that though God is always working in all our life situations, we often cannot make sense of what on earth he is doing.

This applies not only to major things like tragedies, but also to more personal things, like our prayer life. In the video below though, Francis Chan wisely points out that often when our prayers are not answered, it is not because God is not listening, but because of other factors over which we have far more control.
