The Prayer of Request or Prayer of Intercession is asking God in our own words for what we need or desire for ourselves or others. It is interceding with God for our family, our friends, and the world.
Sometimes we might feel that our prayers are not answered -- but they are answered in God's time, not ours, and in God's way, not ours. God often closes a door but opens a window.
For example, I might pray to get a certain job, and I don't get it. I get another one and only later, in looking back, do I realize that this was probably a better job for me.
