Someone named Randy sent Pat Robertson a question to Robertson’s 700 Club television show and it was featured in today’s show (Feb 20, 2019). (View questions here)
You can view the particular question under discussion in this post here (also available at the 50 minute mark (Link: on You Tube here):
I BELIEVED IN THE POWER OF PRAYER, BUT IT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE GOD LISTENS TO ME. SHOULD I JUST GIVE UP ASKING?
Randy told Pat that he’s been praying over and over for a financial blessing from God, and for his family member to be healed of a physical health problem.
Pat essentially responds that Randy is not getting his prayers answered because he’s being selfish praying for himself.
That response is wrong because the Bible actually instructs believers to pray for their own needs – not just the needs of other people – and Pat did not address the fact that Randy was not praying only for himself but also for the healing of a sick family member.
