Not all of my prayers have been answered yet...
Why do you think that is?
God said "no" for His own reasons.
Perhaps my desire must wait for another happening before mine can happen...or a hundred other reasons.
I would like to hear some of your “hundred other reasons” - the only reason I see in scripture for unanswered prayer is when the request does not line up with God’s will.
But in your case, that should not be a problem, since you are sinless in all your ways.
Amen to that.
Some reasons for immediately unanswered prayers may be there is a teaching involved that needs to be learned first, or waiting will strengthen one for a future time of trouble, or someone else needs to get on board, or the time is not yet right for such a miracle.
Or perhaps God just doesn't see fit to answer a prayer in the way WE think it should be answered.
Or maybe, in the case of praying for others, they need to get in a better place first.
Or the answer to the prayer might just be "NO".

You all will notice that Jesus said; "Believe that you receive them, and you shall have them"

Most Christians still miss what Jesus says here,,,,, you must believe that you have received those things you have asked for in
prayer, BEFORE you have physically got them.
God is a Spirit and prayer is a spiritual exercise between your spirit and God.
It may take some time to materialise in our physical realm, but God is not limited by time as we are.

Once you have asked God for those things and thanked Him for them in Jesus' name then that settles it as done.
don't bring it up again to God in prayer unless, it is to thank Him for the answer and worship Him for His goodness.

Once you receive a gift from someone you do not keep asking for the gift everyday afterwards do you.
People will think you are nuts and you would be, so stop asking God day after day for the same thing
He has given you already.

Fascinating concepts, but what scriptures support this line of reasoning, especially the last statement?

Mark 11:23 For verily i say unto you,that whosoever shall say to this mountain be thou removed,and be thou cast into the sea;and shall not doubt in his heart,but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass;he shall have whatsoever he saith.

In verse 25 Jesus speaks of a real hindrance to faith.

And when ye stand praying,forgive,if ye have aught against any :that your Father also which is heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
BUT if ye do not forgive ,neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

What happens if a believer does NOT forgive others? Jesus said he is NOT forgiven himself. SO does the believer who does NOT forgive others still go to Heaven unforgiven?

God knows better than us about what we need, and sometimes what we want is not what we need.
Sometimes our "want" is for our own good.
As for scripture, I cite Paul's prayers to be relieved of what he called a "thorn in the flesh", in 2 Cor 12:7-9.

No "unforgiven" men will end up in heaven. (Men who refuses to forgive others)
Unforgiveness is tantamount to hate, and no haters will be awarded eternal life.
By their hate they declare they are NOT believers.
