Q. After we have prayed, do we have a responsibility?
A. Yes, after we have prayed, our responsibility is to look for any answers, be faithful in obedience to any answers, and be willing "to be the answers."
"Prayer is not a labor-saving device" (W. Bingham Hunter, Class Notes). Whenever God reveals how, we are to take an active role in being the "answer to our own prayers." We never want it said of us, "Why do you call me Lord, Lord, and not do what I say?" (Luke 6:46).
