What prayer does God always answer?

Is there one? I welcome your comments. What prayer does God always answer? (This will be the topic of a message series I begin on April 22).

I've already received one comment (Thanks Paige). Paige said that God answers every prayer ... and in a way, He does (yes, no, or wait). But let's make this harder. Is there a prayer that God always answers in the affirmative? To what prayer does God always say "Yes"? What do you think? Serious or funny comments welcome...

PS Also feel free to comment about this using "Doug's Upcoming Message Survey" on the right hand side of your screen.

I think that the prayer that God will always answer yes to is the one we pray after confessing that we have sinned in some way. When we pray and ask if God would forgive us, He always says yes. 1 John 1:9 says that if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins. There are alot of stories in the Bible about people who did this and I've heard lots of testimonies about it and I've experienced it in my own life too. Off the top of my head, I think that praying for forgiveness has the best track record for being answered "yes". Of course, this could be a riddle, in which case I look forward to Doug's answer in the upcoming sermons.
