“…his ears are open unto their prayers” — 1 Peter 3:12
God hears us when we pray. God told both Solomon and Hezekiah, “I have heard thy prayer.” David testified, “God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.” God heard and answered the prayers of the unsaved Cornelius (Acts 10:4). Your praying is not in vain.
While some are amazed that God answers their prayers, I’m amazed He would even listen to my prayers. Yet, wonder of wonders, He does! What condescension!
No wonder David sang, “O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come” (Ps. 65:2). Do you need any greater incentive than that to pray?
