Devotional: Does God Hear?
Children's Devotion about God hearing our prayers
Read: Exodus 6:1-13 (NKJV)
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
