“By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:”
King James Version (KJV)

There are so many verses on answering prayer. GOD answers prayer according to faith strength level each person is given the measure of faith however that does not mean faith strength levels are the same, the faith strength level is up to each individual GOD does not answer sinners prayers w the exception of salvation GOD does not answer prayers to do someone direct harm,no exceptions. GOD cannot tempt nor be tempted or involved with sin GOD has to allow satan access to tempt us. Strong 's Concordance Bestow Bestow this a very interesting word it means to grant. GOD bestows on us the answers to our prayers. Finally my Question Example First GOD 's obligation to bestow a sin based prayer if we do not pray for the direct harm of another person along w the required faith strength level. Second perhaps it is according to GOD 's favor just to see if we will go through with it,even though GOD knows the answer. A And think if we do not go through with our bestowed sin prayer GOD 's favor will be shown in magnitude. B And think if we do go through with our bestowed sin prayer GOD 's judgment will be shown in magnitude. Third If the harm or sin of another is due to their choice it is acceptable. Examples Unacceptable prayer includes the death of another, stolen property or sex w a specific person. Acceptable sex with another according to their free choice. This is a serious question Agree Disagree that includes an explanation for my understanding. Thanks Thomas

Speaking of God as Jesus, Psalm 65, verses 5 and 6 read, 'You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our Savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth, even those who sail on distant seas. You formed the mountains by your power and armed yourself with mighty strength. ' This perfectly agrees with what the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John and other Scriptures teach us about Jesus. We are told in many Scriptures that Jesus is our Savior. Acts 4 tells us that there is no other name in all of heaven for us to call on to save us. John 1 tells us that Jesus created everything there is, and upholds us with his mighty power. How long, then, are we going to keep insisting that God and Jesus are two different persons? And how long are we going to insist that Jesus is not God? The longer we insist on these errors the farther we drift away from Jesus as our Savior. There was a time when we knew better. When I was a small child I often heard the old people speaking of Jesus as God. They would say 'God help me, Save me Jesus ' all in the same breath. By this I knew that Jesus was God. But now things have changed. We have forgotten who Jesus is. now we think of Jesus as some distant figure, whose identi is nknown to us. There are so many theories that I can 't name them all. The problem is, we have forgotten that God has more than one personality. As the old song says, 'God in three persons. Blessed Trinity. ' This means that God thinks in three distinct ways. He thinks Father, Son, and Holy Spiit. The Father is the way God makes his dicisions. The Holy Spirit is the way God inspires us to believe in what he is doing. But Jesus is always the way God speaks to us. God bless you!

God is good and does not do evil, yet in His Holiness (Righteousness)He does somethings that look humanly terrible.Example,killing is terrible, yet God killed the Egyptians for His people in righteousness. Because of His covenant, God can do anything to favour His own- "Jacob have I loved, Esau have I hated".
