Prayer matters. Over the years I have heard people talk a bout how they don’t feel that God hears them or does anything when they pray. God hears us when we speak to him and he knows when we are calling on Him. See this verse from Psalm chapter 6.
The Lord has heard my supplication, The Lord receives my prayer.
Psalms 6:9 NASB
God hears us. God knows what we are praying. We can call on Him when we are going through the tough and even not so tough things in life. He knows ahat the best response is in each situation and it may not always be what we think would be best, but we can trust that He knows the overall situation better than we do and still bring our prayers and concerns to Him. Will we trust Him enough to bring our thoughts to Him in prayer?
