Answers to prayer

Martin Lloyd once answered the question of why people like George Muller and Martin Luther received such spectacular answers to their prayers. He said:
“We desire to receive all the blessings which saints have received; but we forget that they were saints. We ask, why does God not answer my prayer as He answered that man’s prayer? we should ask, why is it that I have not lived the type of life which that man has lived.”
Prayer: Philip Yancey
