When God Says, “No” — Reshaping Prayer and Learning to Listen

Bibliographic information:

Hauff, Thomas R. When God Says, “No” — Reshaping Prayer and Learning to Listen. Eugene, OR: Wipf and Stock, 2011.



This book addresses the question of why God answers our prayers with “No” and how we should respond when He does. It approaches the problem by looking at various pitfalls we encounter in prayer and how they affect our prayer lives. Then, it analyzes a few prayers from the Bible and draws conclusions on how and why we pray. Although prayer is the main topic, it is also directed toward Christian maturity in general and how God uses life circumstances to grow people into mature Christians. It is for the general reader interested in authentic prayer.
