"Does God Hear My Prayers?"
Thursday, February 3, 2005 †

“When you pray say: ”Father, hollowed be
they name. Thy kingdom come.” (Luke 11:2).


The Lord does his good works in mystical ways that sometimes, we may not see, hear or comprehend the meaning behind it. Does he hear our prayers no matter big or small? Why does he take so long to answer them?

Listen carefully if you have ears. God's answer to your prayer may not be what you expect. There are three possible answers: yes, no, or complete silence. Yes silence. Which ever you receive, all three are valid answers, but why?

The answer "yes" is easy to explain. You have asked for this prayer humbly. Your intentions are pure. You pray for nothing else beyond the meaning of your prayer's words.

The answer "no" may be because God has the ability to see the big picture. He does not only consider the rewards of a tiny moment in time as you do. Sometimes, getting what you prayed for is not the best thing for you. And if your intentions behind the prayer are not honest, then you are not only lying to yourself but you are also lying to God. Such a thing is a sin, not a heart felt prayer.

And although total silence may not seem like an answer, it truly is. It does not mean "yes". It does not mean "no". God is simply asking you to wait until the opportune time. And while you wait, continue to do God's work and spread his words throughout your neighborhood. This will bring you closer to God. Then, you will receive the full blessing of your prayer. It will be beyond what you expected.

Only God knows what will happen and it is His will only that is to be done. God's timing is always perfect and things occur at certain times for a reason. So, don't quit! Keep knocking on His door, but after you knock be sure to listen carefully. You may not always receive the answer you want, but He will always give you what you need for every moment. Just trust in God!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
