Great question!!!! I say yes God hears us. God is aware of every aspect in detail about every soul created through Him (whether we acknowledge His providence or not.)
And yes again to the question needing a hearing aid to hear His answer. We turn up our hearing aids by reading the Word of God, avoiding things that distract us away from praying "unceasingly"(as the Bible guides us), fasting which helps your spirit become more sensitive to the stirrings,quickenings and movement of God's Spirit within us.
The greatest volumizer control to God's answers for our lives is in constantly loving the less fortunate, the oppressed,the wicked and the weak.
A.sk and it shall be given to you
S.earch and you will find
K.nock and it shall be opened to you
Practice this little formula, added to the Lords Prayer and practice kindness to ALL(no matter what you really think you know about the other person), and avoid all selfserving-gratification. We all need to simply take time to learn God's provision---whether we live in castles or a cardboard boxes. Jesus meets everyone right where they are, no matter what or who we are.
Thank you for this interesting question----keep A.sking
p.s. God delights in us the way we delight in our children. For God not to already being available to answer our questions would be the equivalent of us unwilling to answer our childrens answers.
