Sometimes it feels like God doesn't hear us. We can go through seasons like this. Praying and and desiring something and not seeing it, though deep down we know He hears us.
We'll read some scripture about God hearing us to remind ourselves that God hears us and sees us. And then I would like for us to share stories, instances, or examples in our lives of God hearing us. Or Seeing God in the little everyday things. It's always encouraging to see how God works in others lives.
And close with prayer requests. Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. I John 5:14-15 NKJV And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. Isaiah 65:24
For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. Palms 139:4
Jeremiah 33:3, ESV Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known The angel of the Lord also said to her: “You are now pregnant and you will give birth to a son. You shall name him Ishmael, for the Lord has heard of your misery. Genesis 16:11 NIV She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.” Genesis 16:13 NIV
God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there. Gen. 21:17 Genesis 29:32
Leah conceived and bore a son and named him Reuben, for she said, “Because the Lord has seen my affliction; surely now my husband will love me.” Genesis 29:31
Now the Lord saw that Leah was unloved, and He opened her womb, but Rachel was barren. Exodus 3:7
The Lord said, “I have surely seen the affliction of My people who are in Egypt, and have given heed to their cry because of their taskmasters, for I am aware of their sufferings. Acts 7:34
I have certainly seen the oppression of My people in Egypt and have heard their groans, and I have come down to rescue them; come now, and I will send you to Egypt.’ The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit.
Psalms 34:17-18 NKJV
