Why does Jesus ignore the prayers of starving children?

By the time you finished reading this an innocent and helpless child somewhere in the world most certainly died from starvation.

Update:

Every day, more than 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes--one child every five seconds according to MSU. Jesus Christ has all the power to change this, but he won't.

    There are one of two explanations.

    1) He, despite having omnipotent power, does not care enough to help them.

    2) He doesn't exist.

    Either way, I'll remain a non-Christian.

    Why has he never healed a child from DIPG, a cancer that takes away their ability to talk, walk, eat, and eventually breathe, while leaving them completely conscious and aware of what is going on? Even when one was the daughter of a pastor of a mega-church and had millions of people praying for her around the world?

    Why has he never healed someone of NF, a horribly disfiguring genetic disorder, half of whom had no prior family history of the disease?

    I could go on and on. If prayer really did work, then why has NOBODY with these issues been cured?

    God gave us a planet with everything we need to have  good life. We kill each other, steal each other, abuse each other, and then we say there is no God.  Christian organisation  bring food and help to  billions of people arrround the world. Perhaps Christians are the only religious organization that go around the world helping people in need that is the work of Jesus. The Christians bring food to the hungry while other religions say 

    " don't worry God will provide".

  • Prayers are to be directed to Jesus Christ's Father, Jehovah God the Hearer of Prayer, in the name of Jesus Christ our savior and king. It's up to man to save people who are starving, man wanted to self rule and God is allowing it to settle the issue of sovereignty, who has the right to rule. If God kept intervening it would affect the outcome. So, until the appointed time when God will act to undo all the works of Satan through his Son, Christ Jesus. It's up to man to solve his own problems.

    How many of them are you helping? When you judge, you will be judged for the same thing.

    According to James 1:13 it shows that with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone, in the future he promises through his Kingdom that he will wipe out every tear from our eyes death will be no more neither mourning, outcry, or pain be any more the former things will have passed away.

    A child under the age of 12 dies every 5 seconds and people pray. But prayer is simply talking to yourself. If you really wanna help - get out and HELP!!!!

    He doesn't. He commands US to take care off starving children, to love and be concerned about others, to share what we have with those less fortunate. I we all obeyHim, there would be no starving children. The one Church Jesus founded donates many millions of dollars a year to the care of such people, but too many people would rather ignore those in need.
