The God Who Receives Our Prayers

from the Prayers in Scripture reading plan


2 Chronicles 33:1-20, Luke 5:27-32, 2 Peter 3:9

BY She Reads Truth

Though Scripture contains many written prayers, like those found in the book of Psalms, and many teachings on how to pray, like the parables and sermons in Jesus’s ministry, this reading plan focuses on the prayers offered to God in the narratives of Scripture. Each day we’ll read a narrative that includes a prayer from an individual or group. Their prayers vary in length, type, posture, purpose, and God’s response. The secondary passages explore how the rest of Scripture speaks to the themes demonstrated in the main reading. 

While each account is different, every prayer recorded in Scripture teaches us about the unchanging God who invites us to speak to and hear from Him. These prayers model for us what it can look like to be in conversation with God. As you read, notice the posture and emotions present each day. 

Reading Scripture together is the centerpiece of what we do at She Reads Truth. As we spend time as a community reading Prayers in Scripture together, we encourage you to start by reading the daily Scripture on your own. Then join us here to engage and encourage one another as we respond to what we’ve read in the comments. 


Do you find it hard to believe that God receives our prayers? Why or why not?

    It’s hard in the waiting,but what a joy to look back in the waiting to see how he was there working all along!

    i believe he hears every one of our prayers. yes he is far bigger & mightier than we are, but he created the entire universe. he is capable of things far beyond what we are able to comprehend. & sometimes we think he does not hear our prayers because it is not answered how we expect. but his answers and plans are so much better than we could ever imagine

    Sometimes I do. But then I remember that He loves me and will always do what’s best for me.

  4. Kate Beacham says:

    Some days I feel like my prayers are more received than others. I think this also depends on my willingness to pray as well.

  5. Lauren Garza says:

    There have been times where I don’t believe He is there and hears me but now through my walk I know it’s His plans and not my own. He sees the bigger picture and is listening to what we want but ultimately wants to do the most perfect thing. He never forgets and His timing is perfect.

  6. Jasmine Duncan says:

    No, because he hears our prayers and has his own timeline for them to be answered.

    I think he receives every prayer. Our God is never forgetful. Whether he answers it immediately, two weeks, or two years. The Lord is always listening and He always fulfills our promises.
