When it seems no one in your life appears to be listening, it can be stunning to realize that the creator of the universe wants to hear what you have to say.
At times, you might feel your friends, your siblings or even your parents aren’t all that interested in what’s happening in your world. They all have involvements and challenges in their own lives that are fighting for their attention, so naturally your perspective might not always be first on their minds.
So how is it that God – the maker of your friends, your parents and siblings, and you and everyone else in the world – has the time to pay attention? The bible tells us that he hears all who believe in him:
Hebrews 11:6 says, “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek him.”
In that verse, we learn that “faith” is the first key to God hearing our prayer. Secondly, we must believe that He is (or rather, that He exists and is who He says He is.) And lastly we see that if we accomplish those two important
First, we must have faith that God is … and second, we must have confidence in the Lord’s willingness to hear our prayers.
The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
And His ears are open to their cry.
Prayer is an open line of communication between you and the creator of the universe.
Our father is always home. He’s always willing to take our call, no matter how we may have let him down. We should not be ashamed to let him hear our voice.
