God answers prayers

Published 11:30am Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Do you ever think that God gets tired of hearing us pray the same prayer? James 1:6 But let him ask in faith nothing wavering. We also find in I Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing. No matter how many times we ask the same thing God does hear us and he also knows our hearts. Psalm 66:19-20: But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me. We can rest assured that God answers prayer.
