The assumption that one’s prayer is not answered is not always justified. Basically it is never justified, even if everything is in order on the part of the one praying. For the fact that an answer is not immediately seen is not yet proof that God has not answered... Further, prayers for the salvation of one’s children cannot find an immediate answer as easily as prayers for delivery from danger or from an illness. In the latter case the Lord can act independently of the person concerned, for it depends on him alone. But for a person to turn and to actively seek his salvation, God’s will alone does not suffice. Something on the part of that person is also needed.

God won’t force anyone.
