Here's a little story.
On the third Tuesday of October, I asked the ladies of my pinochle group if they could please pray for me because I was getting extremely discouraged by the lack of response from social security, my health, my financial situation, etc. They stopped playing cards right then and there and prayed. I asked if they could just ask their god for a resolution to my problems by Thanksgiving. I wasn't asking for money, a positive outcome, just a resolution.
When I got home and the days after, I beat myself up for being so presumptuous as to expect a response so soon. However, that following Saturday (four days later), I received a letter from attorney saying he was going to talk to a judge about my case the Friday before Thanksgiving. I would find out if my case was approved, or forwarded on for a hearing. That was a wonderful answer to their prayer.
Then my attorney called on that Friday and said I was approved! I am not going to be poor anymore! I will get Social Security disability until I am old enough to get regular Social Security!
