Dear Lord, thank you for hearing us when we pray to you. No matter where we are or what time it is, you are right here with us. You hear what we are saying, and you know what we are thinking. Thank you for always being close to us!
You hear our prayers from places like . . . (Take turns listing the places where God hears your prayers. There are no wrong answers!)
You hear when we pray . . . (Take turns listing times of day and night when you might pray. There are no wrong answers!)
You hear us when we feel . . . (Take turns listing different feelings that cause you to pray, like being scared, lonely, sick, happy, thankful, nervous, or excited. There are no wrong answers!)
Help us to trust you and believe your promises wherever and whenever we pray! We love you, Jesus! Amen.
“It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed” (Deuteronomy 31:8 ESV).
