The answer to prayer is not always "yes." Sometimes, it is "no" or "wait." In his book, Prayer and Providence, Homer Hailey analyzes numerous Scriptures to reassure the believer that our loving God and Father can hear and answer our prayers.

The book begins by analyzing what the Bible says about our need for prayer and God's instructions for offering them. He then turns his attention to discussing prayer for others and prayer in times of trouble.

How does God answer prayer? Although many in the world often use providene synonymously with "miracle," Hailey suggests that God's providence works through the natural and spiritual realms. This is made possible by God's infinite control over the universe and His great care for His children.

The final part of this study focuses on providence as it relates to the individual as seen in Ecclesiastes and the New Testament.
