He Always Answers...
G-d always answers our prayers, without a doubt. Just sometimes he tells us "no". We need to be mature enough to accept that.

I believe g-d always answers our prayers. Even though it may not be EXACTLY what you ask for but we always get something back. Lets say i ask for a million dollars, he may not just give me a million dollars in a blink of an eye but maybe the next day my boss would give me a promotion and i work hard and after a year i had made a million dollars in order to take care of my family. He gives us what he thinks we deserve or what we need that will help us in just the right way.

All my prayers were answered
All my prayers - even the ones that sounded imposible - came true, whether they were good for me, or just for G-d to show me that not everything I want is good for me. And everything I have ever prayed for has come true within the year I prayed for it.

Yes and sometimes the answer is simply No
Usually when I ask for minor stuff (like please G-d hold back the rain until I get home, so I won't get soaked, or please G-d help me find a parking spot) I get my answer very quickly, but when I ask for bigger things, I don't get what I want so quickly, and I think its me who has to fix some stuff in my life in order for my wishes to be fullfiled, but G-d is always wanting and waiting to give us the whole universe (even when we don't deserve it) if we just make the effort to follow his commandments and appreciate his power

He works in really mysterious ways...
and at his own pace, but yes he does answer prayer. And I also think he just likes us talking to him too.

My wife got colon cancer and I prayed like I have never prayed before. The cancer was completely removed and she did not need any further treatments. That was 7 years ago. Thank G-d for answering my prayers.

God ALWAYS answers my prayers, God answers your prayers too. God always listens to everyones prayers and He always answers them, sometimes the answer just might be 'no'

G-d always answers prayers
I have always exeprienced G-d answering my prayers, not according to my wishes and will, but always according to His Will and for His own Glory and for my own benefit.
