One of the biggest emunah questions relates to unanswered tefillos. If we believe that our prayers matter, then we would expect that all our requests be granted. But we have all experienced prayers that appear to go unanswered, whether it’s the tefillos of the Jewish people on the whole or an individual making a specific request of Hashem.
Is there a point in davening if we can’t guarantee that we will get what we want? Is Hashem actually listening to our prayers? What is the role of tefillah in our lives?
In this video, Rabbi Siddur and Josh tackle the challenging question of why it seems that some prayers aren't answered.
