Answers To Our Unasked Prayers


My wife has always been a “Love a Lots” bear, and I have seen myself as a “Champ” bear when it comes to parenting. As a father of five, I have, on occasion, found myself doing things beneficial for my kids, even though they have not asked for it. By experience, I can see problems in advance that will cause uncalculated misery and unhappiness in their lives. Long before the problem presents itself, and its consequences, I have taken steps so that they are able to avoid such tragedies. They don’t know of my actions and concerns. I am giving answers to their unasked prayers. Prayers that are never said, because well…they are not needed. And they are not needed because the problem never presented itself to them. Such actions are done by all parents who love and have concern regarding the welfare of their children. I am not unique in answering my children’s unasked prayers.

With time, I am in hopes that my children will recognize that I have been there, watching over and trying my best to make their lives better and full of joy. And although it is important that they learn lessons by their own experience, all loving parents do their best to help lighten the load of their children.

Perhaps we too have been the recipients of ‘answers to unasked prayers.” We pray to our Father above for many things we are in need of, but have we ever contemplated that our ‘unasked prayers’ are simply petitions that we never make because, well…we have no need to pray for what we already have. The Lord certainly knows of our needs and said to his followers:

“ Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?…for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.” Matthew 6: 31-32)

So, too, He knows of our needs, and, like any loving Father, He proactively answers our unasked prayers. So the next time we feel He isn’t listening, perhaps we need to remember to thank Him for answering our unasked prayers and remember that He is always “championing” good things in our lives.
