  1. Mom, does Heavenly Father listen to all our prayers?

    Yes, He does.

  2. Every word?

    Every word.

  3. But what if a billion people all over the world are praying at the same time?

    He hears every one of them.

  4. But how? You can’t listen to a billion people at once.

    No, I can’t, but He can. I know, because he has heard and answered my prayers, even though millions of others were praying too.

  5. But how?

    As mortals, we’re subject to time. But Heavenly Father is all powerful, and so time is subject to Him. I don’t know exactly how it works, but I know that He has plenty of time to bless us, because I’ve been blessed.

  6. So have I.

    Speaking of time, it’s time for you to say your prayers and go to bed, Matt.
