    Jonah 3:5-10 The people of Nineveh prayed that Nineveh might be spared. God

    answer their prayer and God did not destroy the city.

    Mark 7:24-30 The gentile woman prayed that Jesus would deliver her daughter

    from a demon. He cast the demon out of the woman daughter.

    So "IF" this is true, I may start praying again.

    What do you think, does God hear the prayers of unbelievers?

    Of course God hears or is aware of all prayers, because he is God... omniscient. To suggest otherwise, is either an impossibility, or change in the nature of God as defined in the dictionary...and the bible for that matter.

    Not only does God know everything now, he knows all things that will ever be known or discovered for all eternity.

    But, if you are going to start praying again, I recommend brushing up on how God wants to be viewed and addressed now. Notice how God commands angels to worship Jesus and how he calls Jesus God.

    Hebrews 1New King James Version (NKJV)

    God’s Supreme Revelation

    1 God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; 3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

    The Son Exalted Above Angels

    5 For to which of the angels did He ever say:

    “You are My Son,
    Today I have begotten You”?

    And again:

    “I will be to Him a Father,
    And He shall be to Me a Son”?

    6 But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says:

    “Let all the angels of God worship Him.”

    7 And of the angels He says:

    “Who makes His angels spirits
    And His ministers a flame of fire.”

    8 But to the Son He says:

    “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;

    1 John 5;14 If we ask anything according to His will. He HEARS us.

    So our prayers must be in spirit and in truth if they are to be HEARD by God.

    So if I get this right, children suffering wanting to live and not be in pain is not in line with his will. Oh what a god.

    I spent more nights than I care to remember waking up to the groans of other children suffering and dying.

    Nice to see over the past week you've felt up to posting again Perry.

    Of course God hears or is aware of all prayers, because he is God... omniscient.

    Circular reasoning.

    Mephis: That's about the size of it., "God works in mysterious ways".

    azor: "Oh what a God", yes he is something, what I don't know.

    Question: which group are working according to his will, so their prayers

    will be heard, JW's, Judaism, Islam, Muslim and etc.?
