“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

—1 John 5:14

I have good news for you as a follower of Jesus Christ: God hears our prayers!


General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 

God promises that if we, as His people, call out to Him, He will hear and answer. Psalm 34:15 says, “The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and His ears are attentive to their cry” (NIV).

That means that the Lord is listening for your prayer.

As an example, I was in a room full of adults the other day engaged in conversation.

Suddenly, one of my granddaughters, little Lucy, came up to me and took hold of my hand and asked, “Papa, will you play with me?”

Adult conversation over.

That is because Lucy has access to me that is unique to my immediate family. Even if I am in a crowded and noisy room, if my grandchild is calling me, I hear. In the same way, we as God’s children have His ear.

God urges us to call out to Him. He says, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3 NIV). Yes, God will answer, but in His way and in His time!

Just because our prayers are not answered as quickly as we would like does not mean God does not hear them.

There is an amazing story in Daniel 10 where a mighty angel appeared before the prophet, telling him that his prayer had been heard in heaven 21 days earlier. But this powerful angel was tripped up by a more powerful fallen angel, or demon, known as the Prince of Persia. So God pulled out His heavyweight champion angel, Michael, who came to the angel’s rescue so that he could come to Daniel with the answer to his prayer. That’s a behind-the-scenes look at what happens when we pray.

But remember, God’s delays are not necessarily His denials.

There may be some behind-the-scenes serious angel-wrestling going on right now. A very real spiritual battle rages when we pray. We have no idea of what is going on in the invisible world of angels and demons.

But we can be sure of this: God hears our prayers. Not one is wasted.

  1. I have a little plaque that says:
    God answers all our prayers
    Sometimes He says yes,
    sometimes He says no.
    And sometimes He says, you’ve gotta be kidding!
    I believe it. 🙂
