God Really Listens to Your Prayers

by Pastor Ken

Therefore I tell you, all things whatever you pray and ask for, believe that you have received them, and you shall have them.

Mark 11:24

This is Jesus’ words—a promise you can hold on to. It’s a promise I have been holding on to since I was ten years old. It is a promise I have seen fulfilled in many miraculous and not-so-miraculous ways. It is a promise that has resulted in blessings of my own and a promise that has allowed me to see other people experience blessings from God in their lives.

So when you are in trouble, cry out to God. Make your requests known to Him. He listens intently to every word on your heart and on your lips. When you are lying down, sitting, walking, standing, or crouched down in fear…God is listening.

But God doesn’t just listen. God answers every prayer. When you pray you will receive what you sincerely pray for based on the promises of the Bible.

Your prayers may be inaudible to any person, but they cannot disappear into silence, nor can they be lost in the busy-ness of life. Nothing can drown out your voice from the heavenly Father.

Prayer: God, thank you for always hearing and answering my prayers. Help me pray with faith and with a sincere heart to be like You. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
