Why doesn’t God answer my prayers?


  • Marguerite WilliamsMarch 12, 2014

    I'm having questions for God that keep me up at night. Why does a child, who is being raped or just about to be murdered and cries out for help to God, not being helped by God and dies? Why does God let that happen, even though the child prays and calls out to God for help? Why does an innocent child have to die of starvation even though the mother prays for God to intervene? Why did so many children die in the genocide in Rwanda for example although many of them were devout Catholics and prayed for God to help them? These things are troubling me so much. Please explain - I would greatly appreciate it. Kindest regards, Marguerite Williams
