Today’s Promise

God Hears My Prayer

For the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous, and His ears attend to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.– 1 Peter 3:12

It’s easy to get discouraged when it comes to prayer. Questions like, am I doing this right? Does it really make a difference? And Is God even listening? Flood our minds when it comes to prayer.

As a child of God, you can be assured that your Loving Heavenly Father is attentive to your prayers. He is actively listening for your call.

The phrase “His ears attend to their prayers,” the picture of a father leaning down toward his little one, eager to hear every word the child has to say. Have you ever considered that God is eager to hear your prayer He not only hears your prayer but is eager to hear your prayer.

Mother’s have a special gift of hearing their child’s cry no matter how many people are in the room. Guys neither possess, nor understand this gift. When our children were little, my wife could hear our daughter’s cry in a room full of 2-year-olds. She could spot our son’s call in a crowded McDonalds playground. Your Heavenly Father has His ear tuned to your cry.

God has His ear attentive to your voice. His ear is tuned to your call. You never have to fear that God hears your prayer. He is eager and willing to hear and answer your prayer.

Let’s review that verse one more time,

For the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous, and His ears attend to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil. – 1 Peter 3:12

Confess this with me,

As a child of God, I know God is hearing my prayer

When I pray, He leans forward with eager anticipation

I need never worry that my prayers are being heard by God.

I know that when I pray, God hears

And when God hears, He answers.

Today, God is hearing my prayer

In Jesus Name, Amen

    Yes, I do. I sometimes wonder if God has heard my prayer especially when I’m faced with a big financial obligation.

    Please help me, God.

    I am struggling with some serious, life altering problems right now. I pray and pray, but probably not enough. Nothing seems to improve and I feel hopeless and helpless! I feel as though God does not listen to me because of my sin.
    Please Lord help me!

      Doug, repentance is the beginning point. Ask for God’s forgiveness and commit to leave your sin behind. Then refuse any thought or accusation that would say God hasn’t forgiven you. You can know God hears you when you pray.

    I’m in doubt now. I haven’t got through it. My life is horrible.

      I am so sorry to hear of your struggle. I know things can get tough at times. I also know that will hear and answer your prayer. I am praying God wills you with comfort and courage to face each day.

    I know He hears my prayers, but I just wonder if and when He will answer them. When I am anxious or fretting, I remind myself of His word and I am reassured and I have His peace that surpasses my understanding and level of wisdom! And I know that His will is perfect concerning me.

    Praying for help in my marriage. It’s hard to wait & be still but God is greater than any problems or fears. That human spirit sometimes can make things more complicated unless we truly know God is listening & moving. Prayers for us, God bless. This is a great service for God’s plan.
