Has God Ever Disappointed You in Prayer?

Of a truth, the physical manifestations of God's answers to our prayers do nto come as quikly/immediately as we ask from Him. Why? God answers our prayers each time we pray to Him, but the manifestation of some of these prayers are delayedat times due to reasons best known to God, some of which He in His infinite mercy Has laid in our heart to share with the people of God to strenght and encourage them to pray., because no prayer goes unanswered, only the TIMING of the manifestation matters.

One of the reasons for this actions of God is not far fetched, man in his nature of sin is bound to be proud, regarding himself as a superhuman or as if it is his holiness ( or because he is better that others),or magnitude of prayer, or time of praying and fasting that have given him attetion before God and made his prayers to be answered. He then consider others who though have prayed but have not received answer as people of lesser faith, prayers, fasting or holiness.

Ihave lots of evidences to drive home this point. Most times when people testify to the goodness of the Lord in their local churches or in revival centres, they are fond of laying much emphasis on their prayers, they will at times say "I preyed and prayed and prayed..." as if it is the magnitude of the prayers that determines the answer they have received fro God.
