"Too Busy Not To Pray"

I am still reading "Too Busy Not To Pray" by Bill Hybels.  I know, it is taking forever for me to get through this book.  It is an easy read, but I am easily pulled away to care for Bennett.  There are days when I don't feel like reading.  There are days when I read different books particularly ones that have to do with helping my child sleep.  However, while reading today I came across this regarding "The hurt of unanswered prayer"

If the request is wrong, God says, "No."
If the timing is wrong, God says, "Slow."
If you are wrong, God says, "Grow."
But if the request is right, the timing is right and you are right, God says, "Go!"

Hybels B., Too Busy Not To Pray, p. 88

I can't say I agree with this 100%, but for the most part I feel it is a good outline for me especially when I am needing encouragement.
