Growing up, I used to ask my mom if God can really hear my prayers when I pray. Her answer was always YES.
As I grew older I started to understand that God hears our prayers but we have to be patient. I pray regularly, but find it hard to be patient and feel like God is taking too long to answer or he’s not listening. And I’m constantly asking “Hello God, are you there?”.
I’ve had moments where I feel like my prayers are just bouncing off the ceiling or maybe I’m not praying the way I should. But I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that feels this way right? But what I feel isn’t the same as what’s really true.
The Bible teaches us that God does answer our prayers (John 16:24). But there are things we have to remember: God’s answer may not always be what we were hoping for. His answer sometimes is simply “no.” And his answer might be something we’ll never completely understand.Truth is, everything is seasonal, so relax he has it all covered.
Now I’m older I truly and sincerely understand that prayer is a time to connect and be honest with God about what we want. But it’s also a time for us to recognize who’s really in control. And it’s a time to ask God to help us understand and accept what he brings to our lives (Let His will be done).
Truth is, his answer is always the best answer because he has bigger plans for us and he wants what’s best for us.
