Recently I have had quite a few people ask me to be praying for them. It seems like everyone needs prayer these days including myself. I know that sometimes we wonder if God hears our prayers. He does! Although it may not be the way we would like Him to answer it. We just need to trust Him. He knows what is best for us and we don't. I thought that I would use this post to write down all the verses that I could find in the Bible that talks about God hearing our prayers as believers to encourage us..
"The Lord has heard my supplication, The Lord receives my prayer."
"The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous And His ears are open to their cry."
"The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and will save them."
"And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."
"We know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him."
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all comprehension will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
1 John 5:14&15
"This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which have asked from Him."
These are the verses I could find but there may be more that I didn't see. I encourage you all to go look in your Bibles and see if there are any others. If there is I would like to know. If you find one that you think talks about God hearing our prayers than just add it as comment. I know that we could all be encouraged by this. Thanks. :)
