Waiting With Faith: Cry Out to God and He Will Answer


Waiting for God’s answer can be difficult. We may not understand why He is taking so long, or why He isn’t answering us the way we want Him to. But we have to remember that God is always working in our best interest, even when we can’t see it.

The Bible tells us that “the Lord will answer and say to His people, ‘I will send you rain in its time, the ground will yield its produce, and the trees of the field will bear their fruit.'” (Joel 2:23). So we can trust that God will answer us, in His own time and in His own way.

We have to be patient and wait for God to work. He may not answer us the way we want Him to, but that doesn’t mean He isn’t listening. We just have to keep waiting with faith, and eventually, God will answer us.

Crying Out to God in Hard Times

When you are going through a tough time, it can be difficult to have faith that God is listening. You may feel like you are all alone and that God has abandoned you.

But remember that God is always with you, and He will never leave you alone. He hears your cries for help, and He will answer them.

Just have faith, and keep waiting with patience. God will not disappoint you.

One of the best things you can do when you are going through a difficult trial is to cry out to God and tell Him your worries. This will give Him an opportunity to enter your heart and mind. Share your feelings, your thoughts, and how you are feeling. You will be surprised at how God responds when you open your heart to Him and engage with Him in conversation.

When you are feeling overwhelmed, it is important to stop and focus on God’s love and strength. Be sure to thank Him for being there with you and helping you through difficult times. Spend time in His presence, telling Him your worries and asking Him to give you strength.

The Bible reminds us in Romans 8:26-27 that when we are in difficulties, we should “call on God and cry out to Him in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving.” When we do this, we can be sure that God will answer our prayers and give us His peace and comfort.

God promises that His love for us never fails and that He will never leave us. Often we can be so consumed by our anxieties and fears that we cannot feel His presence. But He is always there, ready to respond to our cries for help. So, when we experience despair or feel overwhelmed, we can cry out to God and have faith that He will answer. He is always near, and He is always faithful.

Trusting in the Power of Prayer

When you pray, put your trust in God.

When you pray, don’t be discouraged if you don’t receive an answer right away. God may be testing your faith to see if you are truly willing to trust Him.

Remember that God is always listening and always answering prayers in His own time and in His own way. Keep praying until you receive an answer, and don’t give up no matter how long it takes.

Remember that it’s not only important to ask God in prayer but also to listen out for His response. After asking, be still and quiet your mind so you can be able to hear His answer. The answer may come it in the form of a voice, a thought, a feeling or a physical sensation.

The Bible says that “The Lord is close to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth.” (Psalm 145:18). Call upon Him in truth, and He will not disappoint.

Trust that God answers prayers, as He does not abandon us when we are in need. He may not answer in the way we expect, but He will always provide an answer when we are faithful and persistent in our prayer life. God is faithful to His promises and His desire is always for us to be in relationship with Him.

The Bible also tells us to “Cast your cares on the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken.” (Psalm 55:22). Cry out to God and He will sustain you, listen to you and answer your prayers. Hold onto faith and do not be afraid to ask, seek and knock on the door of His heavenly kingdom.

Learning to Wait for an Answer

Sometimes, we don’t get an answer right away because God is teaching us patience.

Waiting for an answer can be difficult, especially when we feel like we’re in a hurry. But it’s important to remember that God is teaching us patience through these times. He wants us to learn to wait for Him and to trust that He will always answer us in the right way and at the right time.

Through this difficult time of waiting, it’s important to remember to trust and to have faith in God. This can be challenging, but it’s a lesson that God teaches us. He wants us to have faith and to trust Him unconditionally and to keep praying, even when we don’t understand or get an answer right away.

We can cry out to God and ask Him for wisdom and insight to help us understand why we’re not getting answers right away. We can also ask Him for strength and courage to remain patient and trust that He will answer in His perfect timing.

Having faith can help us remember that God always answers our prayers, even if it doesn’t seem like it right away. He has never left us and He always keeps His promises.

It’s important to remember that God will always answer in the right way and not necessarily in the way we think is best. We need to have faith that God knows what’s right for us and will answer us with His perfect timing. When we wait with faith and trust that God will answer us, it gives us peace and assurance that nothing else can give. We can rest assured that God will answer our prayers, even when it doesn’t happen right away.

What Does the Bible Say About Crying Out to God?

Just as the Bible says, when you cry out to God, He will answer. He knows our needs and desires and will provide for them in the best way for us. The Bible is full of passages about crying out to God and examples of those who have done so with faith.

In Isaiah 65:24, it says that “Before they call I will answer; while they are yet speaking I will hear.” Similarly, in Matthew 7:7-8 it states, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” In these passages, we see that if we are faithful in our pleas to God and put our trust in Him, He will never ignore us nor dismiss our questions.

How Prayer Opens Us Up to New Opportunities

As you seek God, prayer will open up your heart and mind to new possibilities. He will show you the path that He wants you to go on and the opportunities He has for you. When he reveals something to you, take courage and trust Him in the process. Pray to Him faithfully and with sincerity, so that he can equip you with the tools and resources necessary to embark on the journey He has assigned to you.

Prayer is an investment of time for His divine purpose. When we put in the effort and cry out to God, He will answer in His perfect timing. If there’s anything that is unknown or unclear, His Word is a lamp unto our feet–it can provide us with insight and guidance beyond any natural understanding or wisdom. In this way, prayer serves as a means of communication between us and God, one that refines our understanding of Him while leading us into destiny.

Practicing Patience and Faith When Answering Our Prayers Takes Time

When we cry out to God, we can be assured that He will hear us. But sometimes, His response takes a while. That doesn’t mean God isn’t listening—it just means He is taking His time to answer in the most effective way. Practicing patience and faith while waiting for our prayers to be answered is difficult but necessary.

It’s important not to give up when it seems like nothing is happening as a result of our prayers. We must remain steadfast in our faith and continue to trust that God hears us and will answer us in His own time. It might take some time for Him to reveal His plans for us, but we can take comfort in knowing that He is always with us, no matter what.


When you are in need, don’t be afraid to cry out to God in faith. He will hear you and answer you. Don’t give up on Him, even when it seems like He’s not listening. He is always there for you, and He will never leave you.

Although it may sometimes seem like God isn’t answering, remember that He is always working. He may be working in ways we can’t see or understand. The Bible says that in due time, He will answer us in righteousness. He will give us the answers we need in order to move forward in our lives. When we put our faith in Him, He will provide us with the strength and direction we need to make it through hard times.

When we go through times of waiting, we should never give in to despair. Instead, we should cling tightly to the truth of God’s Word. He is faithful to do what He said He will do. His timing may not always be our timing, but He will work out all things according to His will. We just need to rest in knowing that God will always show up in our lives when we call on Him. We should always keep praying and waiting with faith, knowing that God will reward us with what we need in due season.

God will never turn away anyone who calls on Him in faith and humility. His answer may not come when we want it, but He will provide us with the best possible answer. We need to trust that God’s will is greater than ours and that He ultimately knows what’s best for us. He is always ready to help us, so whether it’s in the midst of a crisis or when a difficult decision needs to be made, we should never hesitate to cry out to God in faith and wait patiently for Him to answer. He will never disappoint us as He is always a loving and faithful Father.
