My 11 year old brother asked this question this morning after our morning devotion (Prayer and bible study). He asked, ‘why is the World so unfair to me?’ His emphases was on the matter of his personal desires, that whatever he desires doesn’t always happen as he desires it to be, only a few things do and quite less frequently. Even though he prays ‘a million times’, as he puts it. I tried responding by referring to the fall of man in the garden, and how creation fell with man into corruption, but I don’t think I struck the right cord though. So please I would love the family to help me with a good response that will help him. (He still fully believes and trusts God, but he wonders why things don’t go the way he would love them to go, even though he prays; in fact he even prayed more earnestly after my conversation with him. But I could still feel him unsatisfied with my response).
Thank you guys as I anticipate your responses
