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
Have you ever doubted that God was hearing your prayers?
