Have you ever wondered why God doesn’t answer your prayer immediately? Because He wants you to grow some more. Sometimes we come to God and we say, “God please do this.” But there is something God wants us to do first.
Prayer is the way of developing our spiritual walk. We pray, then go back to God and ask, “Why didn’t You answer my prayer?” And the Holy Spirit tells you that there is sin in your life. The Holy Spirit tells you that you have been selfish or jealous or prideful, or more.
Romans 8:26 says, “Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”
If God were to just answer our prayers automatically, then there would be no growth. But if we never had to pray, there would be no dependence. The wisest thing we can do is to learn how to pray. Prayer is God’s way of bonding us to Him.
