Today’s Promise

God Hears My Prayers

1 Peter 3:12

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.


Questions About Prayer

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 rest assured that your loving Heavenly Father is attentive to your prayers, and He is actively listening for your call. 

Attentive to Our Prayers

The phrase “His ears attend to their prayers” is 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.

Mothers 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 McDonald’s 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 wonder if 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 hears my prayer.
  • When I pray, He leans forward with eager anticipation.
  • I need never worry that God hears my prayers.
  • I know that when I pray, God hears, and when He hears, He answers.

In Jesus Name,
Amen
