Of this I have no doubt.

Do you ever wonder if God actually hears our prayers? Is praying actually worth the effort?

As I write I’m convinced that you will read. I can sit here and with the push of a button, you can read there. My words will transfer through waves and wires.

Of this I have no doubt.

What’s easier to believe; words tapped out on a keyboard will simultaneously be available around the world, or, that prayer can reach a loving God?

Before you answer think about this. Man created the technology for you to see what I have written. God created man.

Doesn’t it make sense that God can hear us? And if He can then don’t you think He will. Why go through all the trouble of explaining everything in a perfect book? Why leave His throne to be born to die? Why carry out a painful plan of restoration, and then just walk away?

That would make no sense. God is way too smart for that. And you know it.

As we pray I’m convinced that our prayers transfer from earth to heaven, from our heart to God’s.

Of this I have no doubt

Quicker than twitter your Heavenly tweets can change your destiny; in the twinkling of an eye...

Why not have a little talk with Jesus, He’s listening.

Of this, have no doubt.

…cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Phil 4:6

Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. Mark 11:24

My friend, I have no doubts. Praying for your family to have a very, very merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas, Doug. I too know that Jesus hears me, as does my Heavenly Father. Now if we could just convince the growing legions of skeptics...*sigh*

God bless you tonight.

Excellent. ... I love your insights on prayer. I was on a "night watch" the other night, and while praying, I thought of some recent wise words I'd read on prayer. ... :-)

He bends His ear to hear us ... great comfort and strength in that.
