Answered prayer is a gift from God, He answered your prayer because you follow His commandments or we can call it the Will of God. Follow Jesus Christ as he said, to go to your secret place and pray; are you doing that? When you communicated with the Father, have you asked God the reason why you are making that request? Did you thank God after you pray?
