I’m reading The Listening Life by Adam McHugh. In one chapter, McHugh talks about God as always listening and acting on what He hears. God doesn’t listen and ignore. God doesn’t listen and forget.
God listens and acts. He’s already responding right now to what you’ve asked in prayer.
Consider Psalm 37:5: Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.
Think of Isaiah 30:19: He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry. As soon as he hears it, he answers you.
He will act. He will answer.
