From a Creighton Student's Perspective

Often when I pray and it does not come to pass exactly as I had asked, I believe that my prayers were not heard. Looking back at some of the prayers that I thought God had ignored, I am thankful they were answered as they were. At the time I thought I knew the best answer, but if I were able to look at my life as Christ does, I would be able to see that he truly does have a plan for my life. Just as when Mary looked directly at Jesus, but did not recognize him, sometimes we are looking at the answer to our prayers, but we do not recognize it because it comes in a different vehicle than we were expecting. If we are able to change our perspective and view the world from God’s eyes, we would see that God answers our prayers in the best manner possible. I have found that my plan can interfere with God’s plan, and when I recognize that Christ knows best, I have found that my prayers are answered more often than I originally anticipated.
