When you pray, do you feel positively assured that God is listening? Many of you have doubts. In fact, you may even let these doubts be the reasons you do not pray very much, especially at night when you are tired.
"I'm afraid He won't answer." "He answers others' prayers but I'm not sure He'll answer mine." "I don't feel I should bother Him with my petty needs." The variations are many, but the underlying fear hindering many from laying all your requests before God is fear that He won't respond.
Have you ever talked to someone who looked over your shoulder at someone else while you were speaking? You feel like saying, "Look, when you want to listen, then I'll speak." Are you viewing God the same way? Are you thinking of Him as being too busy with "important people" or too impersonal to care about or listen to your little woes? Nothing could be farther from the truth. God does have empathy. He longs to listen and He promises to respond!
"And we are sure of this, that he will listen to us whenever we ask him for anything in line with his will. And if we really know he is listening when we talk to him and make our requests, then we can be sure that he will answer us. Put on a new attitude toward approaching God with your needs. You'll feel much better, knowing that He has heard, that every concern is entrusted to His capable hands, and that the answers are on their way....
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
