Can God Ever Forget?

Do we need to ask God for same thing twice?. Assuming I ask God for a job last week, do I need to pray about that job over and over again as if God has forgotten my initial request?. Same goes for healing, since God is not man and cannot be forgetful, why do we ask for healing from same disease over and over and over again per prayer session?.

Is there anywhere in the bible that supports that attitude among Christians because am thinking that it's faithlessness and over zealous attitude that is pushing us into bugging God every minute over something we've told Him before,

Insight please.

Peperspray, Chris and the other atheist person:

I am not a x-tain but the simple answer is that God does not forget. With respect to always asking God over and over again, this is not necessary but if you do this with sincerity, then what is the problem since God always likes to be asked. To ask God for assistance, whether it comes henceforth or never even comes for that matter, you are rewarded for asking God for assistance. Why would you not be rewared. By asking, you are recognizing that God is in control of everything, that you are not in control and that you are in need of his assistance and is an admission of your humility to thr one who created you.

From my religous perspectivre, if you ask God for something, and he loves to be asked, one of three things will happen: (1) it is answer , (2) your sins are removed from you just by asking or (3) you will receive a reward fro askin in the hereafter.

As for the fact that a non-Answer from God means he does not exist, this is like saying several letters written to President Bush for pardon by Tookie Williams, which were never answered, means that Bush does not exist.

Rather, God existence is as simple as the watchmaker analogy. If there is a watch, there is a watch maker. IF there is a world, there is a world maker. That is not a leap of faith but simple logical impressions based on observations.

@PepERSprAY

what you feel is what millions in daffur, congo drc and heck even Nigeria feel everyday, do they have to remind God to take away their suffering, this dude God is either too busy creating other planets or just plainly simple does not exist. end of story.

I am not talking about thanksgiving. I repeat my question: Is it proper to ask God for something you've asked before if your initial request is yet to come?. If yes, does it mean that God has forgotten the one you asked Him before?. Why do some christians love to bully your questions with an imposing biblical speech that does not offer a solution? If you don't know the answer or you are a culprit here, step aside and let somebody who knows the answer offer some insight.

@Poster,

I think someone posted something similar not long ago.

Really, I see it as lack of trust and lack of contentment that is the issue. . .

BTW, that your topic is inappropriate.

Cheers!!!

Of course we that God is not deaf and dumb but the question is: Are we suppose to repeat a request to God over and over again on the same issue like most christians do?. I believe that if you've asked God for a child back in 1998 and still can't get one till 2008, you don't have to remember your condition for God again even though it's been 10 good years you prayed over that issue because He has not forgotten.

Can God Forget?

Is God Deaf?

God may be Dumb

Can God really see everything?

Why do we keep attributing Human Qualities to a being that is clearly Far above.

chei!

IT is Well!

Ohh no, I do not see any reason that is wrong in asking God for legitimate job. People that do illegitimate deals rarely pray. Shall we then stop asking immediately we ask God for the same thing for the right reasons?

Cuz most times you are asking for the wrong things that do not glorify his name.

If God is not forgetful, why do we ask Him for one thing many times?

So you are saying that we do NOT need to repeat our plea unto God like most Christians do?. Once you ask, no more, abi?

1 John 5:14-15.

"And this is the confidence [/b]that we have in Him, that, [b]if we ask anything according to His will, he heareth us:

And if we know that He hears us, whatsoever we ask (according to His will), we know that we have the petitions that we have desired of Him."

What this tells me is that once you have prayed for anything as long as it is the will of God, which is best known through His word, He hears and answers us. We may not see the answer immediately all the time but we will surely get it. That's where faith comes in; the evidence of something you can't see.
