KEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 12:27 KJV “Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.”

God answers the prayers of His children. The ears of the Lord are opened to the cries of the children of God (Psalm 34:15. He that made the ears has ears that hears the cry of His children.

In our key scripture, the Lord Jesus calls on the Father to glorify His name in his life. What was he talking about? The Lord was saying it was time for Him to be killed. He said to the Father, you must glorify your name. You must bring to pass what you promised. The father also answered him. By saying,

I have already glorified it and will glorify my name. God said, what I have said to do is already done and would surely be done. This was an assurance to Jesus and his impending passion and death.

It is very amazing that many people have thought that God does not answer their prayers. Unfortunately, this is the view of some children of God. This is a very wrong idea and concept to hold. The Lord said if men or fathers who are evil know how to give good gifts to their children, how won’t the heavenly father give good gifts to those who ask him for it?  Luke 11:13

Romans 8::32 The Holy Spirit makes it clear that He that spared not His son but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things.  Please note that he said that he gave his son for us all. This includes you. He added that he would also with him give us all things. The Lord said in John 17:23b, “…and has loved them even as thou has loved me.” This is a very amazing statement.  God loves us just as He loves his son Jesus.

This must make you change any wrong ideas you have about God and prayer. Just as He answers the Lord Jesus, He is equally opened up to us, and always ready to answer us as He did for Jesus.

Dear child of God, keep feeding yourself with the word and the promises of God.  Keep telling yourself that the Father loves you just as He loves Jesus, and so His ears are ever opened to your prayers.


 Thank you, dear heavenly father, for your love for me. Thank you that your ears are always open to my prayers. I always receive answers to every prayer I make, which is according to your word. Thank you for your goodness.


Psalms 23:1 KJV A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Matt 7:7 KJV” Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:”
