Devotional: Does God Hear?
Children's Devotion about God hearing our prayers
Yes indeed, God does hear. We see in this chapter
that God was calling Moses to go to Pharaoh to let
His people go. He heard the groans of the Israelites.
It was now the time to act and deliver them out of
the hands of the Egyptians.
More than often, God does not come to our aid straight
away. Sometimes He seems to delay in responding. But
even though this seems to be happening, it's not that
He hasn't heard our prayers, it's just that He is
developing in us patience and trust in Him no matter
how bad it gets. God will always come through in the
end, if we don't give up.
But just like the Israelites, when God does come
through, we often don't recognize or hear Him
speaking to us because of our deep anguish. It
took a while for Pharaoh to let God's people go –
but he did in the end. We need to be persistent,
and not give up.
God hears our cries for help. He hears every prayer
we pray. He knows before we say anything what's
in our hearts.
So keep on praying and know that God is listening.
But in my distress I cried out to the Lord;
yes, I prayed to my God for help.
He heard me from his sanctuary;
my cry to him reached his ears. - Psalm 18: 6 (NLT)
Lord, help me know you hear
When I pray to you,
Even though you may delay,
You will, one day, come through.
