Answered Prayers

When we pray, we don't know if the prayers are answered. We hope they are but we can't put our finger on it.
But just because we can't see or touch the outcome, doesn't mean that it's not there. We don't make 99% of connections between the cause and effect anyway, but we're at least capable of realizing this fact.
If we ask for a blue Jeep and the blue Jeep isn't there the next day, we see that the prayer hasn't been answered the way we expected. Yet, there are other prayers we have, for peace of mind, a successful outcome of a certain situation, an insight about something, courage, or other intangible things.
The more we're in touch with ourselves, the more we can recognize that the prayers are answered. But it happens the way it's best for us. Whatever the outcome of a certain situation is, it's always beneficial for us. The insight we had may not even look like an insight, yet it's there. Courage may have grown, maybe not so explicitly, but in the form of a single thought that pushes us forward. But it may not look that way because we have different expectations.
We're always assisted by people here on Earth as well as other beings whom we can't see. We're not meant to do and achieve everything on our own. In fact, there's no such thing as "on our own" because Life cooperates with us by default at all times.
