1. God May Say No

a) God as our Heavenly Father wants to give his children those things or circumstances that will be for their good and which will glorify Him (Matthew 7:11). He desires that we pray at all times to Him and expect an answer from Him (Hebrews 11:6). However, He may say no to our request if His purpose and His will be better served in another way to glorify His name and be a witness to others.

2. Jonah 4:3

a) Jonah prayed that God would take his life as it was better to die than to live. God does not answer this type of prayer for there is a time to die and we must wait for God's timing not ours. Also, Jonah had yet to accomplish the work God sent him to do. 

Jonah 4:3 
3 So now, Lord, kill me instead, because I would rather die than live!”

The End ...
