He Hears Your Prayers Published 2/10/20 Read 1 Peter 3:12 "For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil." Reflect Do you believe God hears your prayers? (Why or why not?) If God can see you, He can hear you. He hears your prayers, and even if you can't get a word out, He understands your tears and sighs. If it's in the middle of the night and no one is around to care for you, God is there with you. He's not slumbering or sleeping even if the rest of the world is (Psalm 121:4). What good news--we are not alone. We are not forgotten. We are known and loved by the Lord! Here is a way to get a fresh glimpse of this aspect of God: Reflect on times when you feel invisible, discounted, forgotten. What triggers in you a sense that God has left you or is too busy with His work in the universe to care about your problems? For some, it could be a tragedy that altered a life or a family. For another person, it might be a divorce, a loss of someone she loves, a financial reversal, or a job layoff. Bring these past or present experiences to God and tell Him you want to regain your spiritual eyesight and a sense of His presence. Then meditate on the whole of Psalm 139; Matthew 10:29-30; and Acts 17:28. Pray Lord, give me the courage to bring everything to You. Give me peace of knowing You hear my prayers. Amen.

Hi Back to the Bible, I wanted to comment real quick. I just wanted to first say thank you for the devotional!! I love the teachings of your organization!! And I do think that God hears my prayers. Even in times of doubt, which I do not like to admit, I choose to always run to God and His Word and not away from God. Sometimes it takes a little while of reading, but it ALWAYS helps. I just want to encourage anyone who reads this to do the same thing. And even if you think God does not hear your Prayers, He is everywhere at all times, He is Spirit. He also knows all things. I think He probably even knows what we will Pray before we Pray it!! We must pray because it is a relationship that God wants with us. And in the Bible it talks about the Holy Spirit Praying for us. He hears our utterances and our groanings. Making the effort is so important. Remember, always to God He can handle anything we bring His way even our doubts. Praying for all who may read. God loves us more than we could possibly know or imagine!! He is totally devoted to us. Agapao Love. Blessings on your day and on your Prayers. Amen.❤️??
We look forward to your comments and questions in these devotionals!
