Many people think they have to get God’s attention somehow before He will hear their prayer. But this verse says the opposite. “And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear” (Isaiah 65:24).
We are in the time of the New Covenant (it shall come to pass time) when we don’t have to storm the gates of Heaven to get God to give us an audience for our prayer request. Somehow Christians have gotten the idea that God is stingy and you have to someway convince Him to hear your prayer and then persuade Him to answer you.
First of all, He has already given us everything. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3). There isn’t anything you can ask for that He hasn’t already given you in Christ. It’s just a matter of believing and receiving.
Second, God is always listening and before you can even ask, He has answered. Like a father who wants to give gifts to their children, our heavenly Father also wants to give us the desires of our heart.
