Moshe beseeches G-d with 515 entreaties to enter into the land of Israel. G-d denies Moshe’s plea, yet immediately after, Moshe says, “For what great nation is there that has G-d so near to it, as HaShem our G-d is at all times that we call upon Him?” (Deut. 4:7) Could it be that G-d always answers our prayers, even if not always to our liking?
