Nevertheless, people seek but do not find.  They ask but do not receive.  They knock, but the door is not opened.  Or...perhaps it is, but not so visibly as we are expecting.  God has chosen to place some interesting constraints on himself which lead to a number of interesting problems.  If God is truly both merciful and just, let us trust that he will find equally interesting solutions to them.

I don't think that that is an orthodox or Scriptural stance to take.  You're basically rejecting Christ's promises to us.

You do not always receive whatever you ask for.  That much is certain.  But if you are asking for the truth and praying that God gives Himself to you (as opposed to a new car, a great job, etc.) He will do it.  He is not the sort of God that lets His children cry out for Him only to be denied or ignored.
