How Can God Hear Everyone's Prayers At Once?
God can hear everyone's prayers at once because God is everywhere. We can only be at one place at a time, and usually we can't understand more than one person at a time. But God is not like us - he is not limited. Not only can God hear and understand everyone who is praying to him in many different languages, but he also can give each person his full attention. Isn't that great?
[God is speaking] "Am I a God who is only in one place? Do they think I cannot see what they are doing? Can anyone hide from me? Am I not everywhere in Heaven and earth at the same time?" (Jeremiah 23:23-24)
Luke 1:13; Acts 10:31
How can God hear people praying at the same time from different countries?
Note to Parents
Many children harbor the misconception that God is limited as we are. This is partly unavoidable because children think concretely. But it is also an opportunity for you to introduce them to the idea that God is infinitely greater than we are. He can even hear thousands of prayers at once! An illustration that might help: When five people touch you, you can feel all five.
