Does God commit to prayers by answering with an affirmative yes or no according to your faith, beliefs or importance. The term "Thy will be done" is a concept established only by Jesus that insinuates God plays a part in your life by special requests particularly with requests that are either good or bad, life or death, yes or no. But I believe you are blessed seasonally which captures any event within that timeframe. As an example: On September 20, 1958 there was an assassination attempt on Martin Luther King Jr. ... During a book signing at Blumstein's department store in Harlem. Izola Curry approached and asked him if he was Martin Luther King, Jr. When King replied in the affirmative, Curry stabbed him in the chest

with a steel letter opener. Dr. King survived to live on.

On April 4th 1968 Dr. King didn't survive from a assassination. Many will say it wasn't God's will for Dr. King to live another day to save the Negro nation from racism. So can it be said that Dr. King's prayers worked in 1958 but God said no in 1968? But others in the civil rights movement lived on because God said "yes" to their living.

Must we put all decision on God to say "yes" or "no" to life, but as to there being an alternative response where God said yes to the life of white racist who lived to an old age with or without prayer after taking a life. Once again the stabbers and killers may have been in a season of being blessed to live regardless of their actions and lack of prayers during those times.

Matthew 5:45 KJV that ye may be the children of your Father who is in Heaven. For He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. Regardless of your prayers you are blessed seasonally and your yes's and no's are according to the season you are in and not that God affirms all requests with a yes or no upon each prayer.

Do you not give your own children seasonal gifts. And if you must constantly tell them yes or no, have you not established boundaries for receiving.
