I'm sorry to hear that you've been suffering and that you don't feel like your prayers are being answered. I know that you've probably written about the mental health condition or conditions that you're suffering from more than once here on Psycho-Babble, but could you remind me what it is that you're looking to be healed from?

I do pray myself, but I generally tend to avoid asking God to perform miracles. I'm not saying that miracles can't happen or that I wouldn't be pleasantly surprised if I were to witness one happening, but I don't go through life expecting that they'll happen. What I do ask God for is guidance in making choices that will lead to both my well being and the well being of others. I pray for myself and for others, in part because it's my belief that human action must precede the changes that we want to see.

It of course is not my intent to tell you or anybody else how to pray, so if you don't find my example to be helpful, please feel free to disregard it. I do think, though, that when we feel like our prayers aren't being answered that it's sometimes best to reexamine what we're hoping to achieve and whether or not there might be ways of accomplishing what we hope to achieve that we haven't considered. In other words, by seemingly not answering our prayers, maybe God is trying to guide us toward solving our problems in a different way.
