I feel God has not answered my prayer for salvation

If you feel God has not answered your prayer for salvation, but you are trusting only what Jesus Christ did on the cross, (that is paying for the sins of the world; and that is the only way that anyone could get to heaven,) do not despair, but you feel that your faith is not big enough for him to save you, then that is why Jesus said in Luke 17:6 "...If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you."

The mustard seed was the smallest seed known, and because salvation is not by works, but is a free gift, you do not need the greatness of a great big faith, only a very small faith, as small as a grain of mustard seed is all you need, because of the Lord Jesus Christ's undeserved Grace and love.

Don't depend on feelings, for we rely on the promise of God's Word.

These scriptures are a promise from God: 1 John 5: 11,12,13, "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." In other words you know because, God said it in his Word the Bible, and therefore you simply believe it.

The Bible Book of Hebrews 10:38 says:
"Now the just shall live by faith."


You do not have to be in a church in order to pray to God, for God even sees your thoughts, you do not have to bow your head in humility in order to pray, even though that would be a good idea, remembering that God sees the heart rather than the actions or special words, your own words are sufficient to convey your appeal to God for salvation or other requests.



Maybe it's because you haven't prayed the Salvation Prayer. The Salvation Prayer must be prayed before God will answer any other prayer, it only needs to be prayed once in your lifetime for you can not lose your salvation once you have it with a believing heart, God will answer your salvation prayer according to this verse "... him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." (John 6:37.) He may or may not answer the other prayers that you pray after the prayer, depending on whether it is His perfect will for you or not, but he will answer the  Salvation Prayer for certain, if you pray it with a believing heart. (Only faith as small as a grain of mustard seed needed.)


Salvation Prayer:

"Dear Lord God Jesus Christ, I know that I am a sinner, because your word says that all have sinned, and I do believe that you died for all my sins on the cross of Calvary, so I wouldn't have to go to that terrible place called hell, that is why with a believing heart, I ask and thank you for being my Lord and Saviour, knowing that you have become my Saviour now, and that I will be with
you in heaven one day, AMEN."
