God hears everything!
You have wearied the Lord with your words; yet you say, “In what way have we wearied Him?” in that you say, “Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and He delights in them,” or, “Where is the God of justice?” Malachi 2.17
Our thoughts are words in God’s ears. The truth is, prayer is an extension of everything we think. When we use our words, God hears our thoughts.
In Genesis 18.12-15, Sarah said that she did not laugh because nothing came out of her mouth, but the Lord heard her laugh within.
“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her (thoughts) has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Matthew 5.27-28
Thoughts are words to God.
You might ask: How can I control my thoughts?
For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. Matthew 15.19
