Alright, I have a question. I am re-watching through Slayers, and I just passed the part where Gourry brings out the Sword of Light for the first time. Before he actually shows it though, he taps the hilt of the sword with a pin and then says "Do you get it now?" This had something to do with the fact that he was about to unleash the Sword of Light but I didn't understand why he used the pin to tap the hilt of the sword to address that point? Or was that the point?
Also a spiritual question. Something has been bothering me a lot lately, and that is unanswered prayers. I am told that prayers either go amiss because of sins that are in ones life, but I've also been told that prayers do not always produce an answer immediately after praying for whatever the petition may be. I have been dealing with social anxiety which is producing a paranoid nervousness at work around people and I have been going to God about it on a continual nightly bases. The problem is, the problem seems to be more medical and psychological than anything else because despite how much I ask God for deliverance through the Lord, Savior, and Healer, Jesus Christ, I am always faced with the issue the next day, as if my prayer was in vain. I want to believe in God for deliverance, and yes, I want to acknowledge that some things are best dealt with through time and perseverance, but is there any reason in specific as to why Heaven seems to be silent concerning some prayer requests?
