Let us suppose that he won nothing. What would be his prayer then? "God, why weren't you listening to me?"
When we ask for God's help, it should be for things that we need and our prayers should be earnest. Praying is not a game show like "Let's Make a Deal" or "Deal or No Deal". We offer our prayers in truth. God always listens and will grant our prayers and desires in accordance with His will.
The LORD is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth. He grants the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cries for help and rescues them.
Psalms 145:18-19 NLT
