In the name of Jesus Christ
Some believers think that when they ask something from God in their prayer to Him, He should respond to them immediately and if He doesn't answer right away, they get angry with Him and get in a dispute with God; they think that He is not concerned about them, so they start their backslide jorney.

But there is another type of believers, when they ask something from God in their prayers, they have patience until their request is answered, even if their request would carry on and would be delayed for many years.

One of the fathers prayed to God to get back his backslidden son and his request was answered after 15 years, and one mother prayed to get back her son, who became drug addicted after backsliding from God and her request was answered after 4 years and her son is now a firm and healthy believer again.

God is a prayer answering God and He is the One who decides, when this should happen and we cannot get in a debate with God concerning this matter. He says in Romans 9:20 But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, “Why have you made me like this?”and all we can do is to pray with faith and thanksgiving as God says through Paul in Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

God is the One, who searches the heart and the reins, He can see and hear and answer according to His divine will and in His timing.

And all we can do is to hold our faith and have patience, for There is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. Hebrew 4:13

All the glory and greatness to Him.

May God be with you. es
