Thankfully, no!

The Bible says that God “is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” (Eph. 3:20). Paul is not saying, however, that we can expect God to grant us what- ever we ask. We are instructed to pray according to God’s will and His Word and in submission to Christ. Still, we should be encouraged. We should be bold in our prayers, confident to ask God to do the impossible (see Heb. 4:16).

No request is too great for God (see Jer. 32:27). Nothing is impossible with Him! Nothing is too hard for Him. It is not a question of God’s power; it is a question of His will and wisdom (see Dan. 3:16–18).
