How can Christians say that nothing is impossible for God, when there are many things he has not done in spite of prayers?

    Christians love to say that nothing is impossible for their god, yet clearly there are a lot of things that are. In fact, everything is.

    I don't say that nothing is impossible for God. He can't destroy an immortal spirit.

    If we are going to pray (ASK) for something....

    We had better be ready to hear His response. That means getting into the scriptures that deal with our predicament, ideally with someone who can help us if we don’t know the Bible all that well.

    It isn’t that God doesn’t answer prayers, He does, every time. It’s just too many of us are not listening...

    Yes. And in the next breath, they go "He didn't cause that!"

    Christians are nothing if not confused.

    Their "all powerful" god is the most helpless of any god I ever heard of. Why do they wish to have such an incompetent, and impotent god?

    Perhaps it is because one would "ask amiss", James 4:3

    Sometimes answers to our prayers does not mean the complete elimination of our problem, but rather he shows us the way to cope with it without losing hope..

    God is not your fairy godmother or your genie.

      Agree, clearly the OP is an anti theist or even an atheist

    Even if that were true, it doesn't prove what you're suggesting. Someone might have never eaten sushi, but that doesn't prove that they are incapable of eating it. Not doing something and being unable to do something are two very different things.

    Our Father knows what's best for us overall. He loves us and I trust him to take care of me, even if that means I have to go through bad times to come out stronger on the other end like Job did.

    He can't prove he exists

    ?

    It seems to me

    from your question

    that you don't understand the meaning of the word "impossible".

    There is no logical connection between

    - there are many things he has not done in spite of prayers

    and

    - there is or is not something that is impossible for God to do
