I need to ask this question because I am so upset and I am sure it is showing to my co-workers right now. How do you know when God says “No” to your prayer? I have been praying and praying, going to Mass, receiving his precious body and blood, doing novenas, the list goes on and on. I can honestly say that all has been in and through love and with trust. My youngest daughter and her husband have been trying for years to conceive a child and her heart is broken. She has been praying as well, going to Mass, crying and even screaming at God for an answer … either yes or no! I am watching my child come apart with stress.
Sorry for going on and on, but I really need to know this now: Should I just accept that the answer is “no” or “not now”? I know “his will be done.” I understand this but when is it time to accept and just try to adjust that it is his final answer? This is really affecting our health and I know that the Lord does not will that for us. He knows our hearts and must know fully how much we love him, but we are only imperfect humans trying their best. Please help us. Where do we go?
