Does God Hear Our Prayers?
If you ever need encouragement about God's involvement with your life, read Psalm 139, the whole thing. King David, who wrote it, paints a positive picture of how much God knows us intimately, protects us, and is never far from us. This is a psalm you need to read, especially if you think God isn't answering or hearing your prayers, because it will encourage you to keep praying. Some might ask why we have to pray if God knows what we are going to say before we even say it (Psalm 139:4). But, if we took that attitude, we would miss out on intimacy with God, hearing Him when He answers, and the power of prayer.
