There have been many times when I later learned others were praying for me during a difficult situation and I know it made all the difference.

John 9:31 says, “”We know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him.”

God hears the prayers of believers.  We may not always like his answer at the moment, but He does hear us and He is working.  Often it’s just in ways we do not understand or see.
