Meaning of Prayer
Prayer is the communication between Man and God; this definition is from my Religious and Moral Studies in primary school. Then, we did not really understand this simple statement yet we could define it so quickly.
Communication is defined by Merriam-Webster as; a process by which information is exchanged between individuals through a common system of symbols, signs or behavior.
 Some Christians struggle  with God on the Issue of UNANSWERED Prayer. Meanwhile the bible has given us many scriptures to assure us of answered prayer by our father in Heaven. I have yet not come across a prayer in the bible that was not answered.

Why Unanswered Prayer
So then, what could cause people to claim that their prayers were not answered? There has being several answers to this question; others say, it could be faithlessness, divided attention whiles praying and many others. I am not disputing the fact that all these answers could be true, instead I want to draw our attention to a new view all together.
Mostly in prayers, we pray without understanding in what we asking from God and we also have our own expectation of how the answer should manifest. These thoughts blind our eyes to our Answered prayers. We pick scriptures, pray with all our heart concerning a particular situation or event and we wait for some few moments to see how our prayers has been able to affect the situation, only to realize that things are getting out of hand, then we quickly term it as unanswered prayer.
Let's look at some typical example of such events; Prayer: Oh! God, Please I want you to align me with my divine helpers just as Christ's disciples who helped him to accomplish his purpose on earth, so I can also accomplish my Purpose and assignment in life. Amen.  

We mostly pray such prayers with the expectation of meeting a Guru tomorrow, who will establish us on the path we want to take in life. We normally don't consider the fact that, probably we are not all set for the journey. Probably, there are some few life lessons we need to experience to equip us more for the task or The divine helpers may not come in cars, well dressed, not really the kind that can set you up on your journey. We shouldn't forget that even Christ disciples left all that they had to follow him accomplished his mission. The only help they had to give Christ was their skills and potentials.

The Answer is right before us
This is to draw our attention to the fact that, the answers you expect, may not come in the exact package like  Kofi's own came. Which does not also mean that God did not answer your prayers, Brethren, YOUR PRAYER IS ANSWERED. You need to ask God to open your eyes to see the manifestation of your answered prayer so you do not despite it.
Just as we established in the definition above, Communication is an exchange; there is no way God will not answer a prayer but there is an assurance that he may not answer according to your expectations. 
Isaiah 55:8-9; For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
