God Hears Your Prayers

Prayer is an appeal to God to give ear to our words and consider our inner beings. Our longing to connect with God and seek his heart. Prayer is not a routine, but an earnest cry to listen to our prayer. We come to Him in covenant relationship and we plead our cause because He is our King and God. The Lord always hears our prayers and is always willing and wanting us to come to Him. We do not pray just to speak, but to get an answer... to hear God speak!

Sometimes we think God will not hear us because we have fallen short of  his high standards for holy living. But God listens to us because we have been forgiven. When you feel your prayers are bouncing off the ceiling, remember that, as a believer, you have been set apart by God and He loves you! He truly hears and answers us (although his answers may not be what we expect). Look at yourself in the light of God's power, instead of looking at God in the light of your problems.

"You can be sure of this: The Lord has set apart the godly for himself. The Lord will answer when I call to him."  Psalm 4:3
