God Hears

READ: PSALMS 34:15-19; 139:1-12; 1 PETER 5:6-7

God hears when I talk to Him

His ears are always open

No matter what I have to say

He hears

God hears me when it is late at night

When I can’t sleep

No matter what is on my mind

He listens

God hears me in the early hours

When no one is awake

No matter if I talk out loud or silent

He hears

God hears what is going on

He always cares for me

No matter what I need

He listens and helps me • Bethany Acker

• Do you ever wonder if God hears you when you pray? This is totally normal. Thankfully, God knows we need reminders that He is listening, and He provides many throughout His Word. Consider taking a moment to re-read today’s Bible verses, and maybe even choose a favorite.

• The Bible often says God listens to “the righteous” (Psalm 34:15). The good news is, while none of us can be righteous on our own, God makes us righteous in His sight as soon as we put our trust in Jesus. God wants us to be in relationship with Him, and He invites us to talk to Him about anything and everything. What’s on your mind right now? Do you feel like you can talk to God about it? According to Hebrews 4:14-16, why are we free to talk to God?

In my distress I called to the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears. Psalm 18:6 (NIV)
