For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Note 50 at Mt 7:8: Prayer that meets the requirements outlined in God's Word (see note 49 at Mt 7:7) is always answered. Many times we don't perceive the answer because it always comes in the spiritual realm first before it is manifested in the physical realm. If we waver (Jas 1:6-7) from our confident (Heb 10:35) faith, then we abort the manifestation of that answer. But God did answer. Everyone who asks receives, etc. Compare with Daniel's answers to prayer in Da 9 and 10.
