A child asks, "Mama, can I talk to God? Will He hear my prayers?"
Do you remember when you were a child celebrating your birthday? Before blowing out the candles you made a wish. If you recall, you believed whole-heartedly that your silent wish would come true. Your belief was unshakable. But, did all of your wishes come true? Probably not. I know my desires didn't always come to pass.
Going to God in prayer is similar to making a silent birthday wish. However, when we pray to God it is like having a conversation with a good friend who has your best interest at heart.
God indeed hears our prayers. He loves us and cares for us so much that when we go to Him with our heartfelt prayer, He will consider all of our requests based on our faith and our needs.
Teach your children to seek God in prayer!
