I'm wondering if there is an easy way to search for every time the Bible says God answers prayer, has heard prayer etc?

Is there a way to divide these between specific prayers answered and references to this in general?

It seems like a complicated thing to do with the search feature, is there a dataset or resource which can do this?

גַּם־חֹשֶׁךְ֮ לֹֽא־יַחְשִׁ֪יךְ מִ֫מֶּ֥ךָ וְ֭לַיְלָה כַּיּ֣וֹם יָאִ֑יר כַּ֝חֲשֵׁיכָ֗ה כָּאוֹרָֽה

bump to encourage a response 7

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

What is needed is ‘All the prayers Answered by God in the Bible‘ dataset.

The difficulty with a search is that it will not always be worded in a consistent manner to run a search. The fact that God answered a prayer will be ‘alluded’ to at times.

So there is an all the prayers in the Bible dataset... I guess that is a great starting point.

I started with  <Person God> BEFORE 18 WORDS (answer*, hear*,grant*) BEFORE 2 Words (prayer,petition)

That's the hard part. You could correlate the results with "All the Prayers in the Bible" (Commentary)  e.g. For 1 Kings 9.3 (Solomon) type 1 Kings 8-9 into the commentary and you get his prayer of dedication in ! Kings 8.. For Is 38:5 type Is 37-38.  For Psalms/Proverbs type the chapter in the commentary, If you don't get a match, the reference to prayer is a general one.

I got this far: {Label Prayer WHERE Content ~ "Petition"}

That goes with the APB Commentary I mentioned above, and has many prayers that are implicit (not in my search), but my search has some extra results that vary between specific and general.
