Does God hear my prayers
Does God really care what I want?
Am I that dense that I think the God who created the universe and everything in it would take the time to hear and answer my prayers? Just think about it a minute….why would God who existed before time had begun take an interest in me, it seems on the surface totally absurd. Yet today millions upon millions of people pray to there God for many varied reasons and do not think twice about how absurd it may be because they have ‘faith’ that he hears them and will answer them.
Faith as defined in Webster’s is…”unquestioning belief…in God”. Though there is no hold in your hand irrefutable proof of his existence, these same millions of people would also die for that very belief. I have read many books postulating tangible proof of the existence of God, and to me a layman these books do seem to put the pieces together and prove his existence. However just like the biased media we have today, one must consider that the author’s of these books may be prejudice towards proving God’s existence.
I was brought up in a christian household and can not imagine life without God watching over me. Do I think he spends hours keeping track of when I forget to pray or that I say a few choice words when I am angry….no. But a being that can create everything in the universe from nothing defying the basic laws of Physics can surely have some way to know when I pray for his help.
So…does God care what I want…no
but I think in some way he knows what I need.
