“Can you hear me, God?”

Sometimes we feel close to God in prayer. Sometimes we feel like he’s very distant. But one promise we have from the Lord is that he always listens.

In God Listens, you’ll find real-life stories of answered prayer. Author Lorene Hanley Duquin shares stories she has collected from real people — people praying for physical healing, people praying for wisdom in making an important life decision, people in need of spiritual healing, and many more. Each chapter focuses on different forms of prayer and includes practical ideas for using them in your own life.

God Listens and responds — sometimes just the way we want, and sometimes in unexpected ways, but always with deep and abiding love for us.
