Why doesn't God answer our prayers at times?
When does God answer our prayers?

We have to be like the widow who trusted God would give her what she needed that she gave her last 3 gold coins as she entered the temple and what did Jesus say? That she trusted God so much and she tithed as we should do and didn't give just 10%..she gave more, her last 3 coins! Jesus said because of her complete trust in God that she would NEVER be without food on her table.
I have been praying for 20 years for a brother in the Truth and He hasn't answered me yet..but He has answered all my other prayers..in His time. Not in ours and we must deserve to receive. We must not pray only when we need and say we can't do more for God. We do all we can, we trust Him so completely that we do not worry because if we do then we doubt God will answer.
How can you expect God to answer your prayers if you are letting your worries eat you up? You pray then you fret.
I have never worried and like the woman who gave her last 3 coins, I do the same thing. I tithe to God and every time I do so, money come in ways I never expect it. Why? Because I obey God, I trust Him completely as no Father would give a stone to his child to eat.
Our prayers are answered only if we put our complete trust in God and expect Him to give to us..but we must give to Him in order to receive. Not only by tithing but by obeying to the best of our abilities His 10 Commandments. He isn't going to help us if we pray then fret and worry. It means we don't trust Him.
At 21 I fell alone with 3 kids and I never worried where the money would come to feed my kids. I had complete trust in God and I never went without.
You want to have your prayers answered? Trust Him, act as if your prayers are answered, do for God what you can. The more isn't important..it's the doing that is. Every morning I go to my favorite place to pray to God and I given Him thanks for my daily bread, for me to always have my 3 gold coins to give to Him and even if I am down to my last 3 coins, I give to Him and boy does He ever take care of me.
Faith is essential..maybe that is what you and your wife lack of at the moment. Faith that God will answer your prayers. So try by stopping to fret and not sleep but pray, do for God, trust Him completely that He will find a solution and He will.
Even if I would pray for you, He won't answer you more, if you don't have complete Faith in Him and stop worrying.
Give your 3 gold coins in complete faith and food will always be on your table and you will be debt free.
( No self promotion ) I do this at home and it keeps me debt free. I prayed to God to find me something I could do at home because my health doesn't permit me to work anymore.
God will always give you a solution. This is mine He gave me.
Have Faith, Pray, Trust and do for God and He will do for you.
