  • here's a handful of verses about prayer:

    Mt 21:22........."...whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."

    Jer 33:3......... "Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things..."

    Jn 14:14........ "If you ask anything in my name, I will do it."

    Jn 16:23........ "...whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you."

    Jas 5:16........ "The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much."

    Job 22:27...... "You will make your prayer to Him, He will hear you..."

    Isa 55:11....... "So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

    Jer 29:12........ "Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you."

    Isa 65:24........ "It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer,

  • There is one verse that lets us know that God does NOT answer every prayer that is prayed. It is Psalm 66:18 which says, "If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me." So the answer to your friend's question is that God does not answer every prayer that every person prays. If we have known sin in our hearts and we pray to God, even if we are believers, He will not listen to our prayers. He will instead turn a deaf ear to our requests.
