    Can the Devil hear you when you pray?

    And, can the Devil hear your thoughts?

    The Devil cannot read your mind and does not know the secrets of your heart only God. 
    The Devil does like to try and place thoughts or influences in our lives and then uses tactics to incorporate a relationship with you based on relative conveniences.

    The devil cannot hear your silent prayers. He is not allowed by God to be able to read your mind. As far as actions, he will use your negative actions against you. He will find your weaknesses and exploit them to the fullest.

    There is no devil. He is a symbol for negative thoughts and emotions. In that case, yes, your thoughts can be heard by everything within you.

    The Devil, Beelzebub or Satan, was inherited from the parent Jewish/Aramaic faith by the early Christians. The idea of an evil being suited the Church to control the faithful, bind them to the Church in mind and spirit. Essentially adherents were 'willing slaves' to the idea and pursued their beliefs with force.
    Fast forward down the years - over 2,000 of them - and believers have been conditioned. Without their beliefs they'd be 'all at sea' without a paddle.
    To get down to praying: the Church conditioned believers at all levels to beg for forgiveness for imagined sins. The act of praying is the great leveller that brings the lowest together with the highest born. It's still begging, however anyone might phrase it. Even your achievements are ascribed to 'heavenly intervention'. Don't try to argue this point with church folk at local level, but the higher-ups might agree with you - or patronise you. 
    Don't worry about others overhearing, if you feel you have to pray, it's your credit card and computer details you keep quiet!

      PS, the Norsemen had Loki as the embodiment of evil, trickster, shape-shifter, who brought about Ragnarok, the end of the Norse gods. Ragnarok was another way of ushering in Christianity, the gods were swapped for saints, Loki for the Devil.

    The very nature of the question suggests that such a devil may be omniscient, all seeing and all knowing.   It is said that when a miracle occurs, God gets the credit, and when a miracle is thwarted, the devil gets the blame.  Perhaps they are then two sides of the same coin.

    Of course. He is your lower, darker side. The part that has not yet been touched by the Light Divine. The one which always tempt you and encourages you to do things that make you weak.
