so we have a recurring theme from the OT reading and the Psalms... that of God hearing us.
God sent Moses to bring the children of Israel out of Egypt (which reminds me of the quote from Veggie Tales when they talk about the children of Israel and one of the French Peas says "awwww. I LOVE children!") because He heard them crying out to Him.
now, mind you, when He started to work in the situation to make things MUCH BETTER, things got worse at first. Pharaoh didn't like God messing with his program, and he made things harder on the Hebrews. but the important thing to realize is that God heard them.
God hears us, too. it doesn't seem like it sometimes. He doesn't always respond immediately. like Aslan says in the Narnian books, "all times are soon". when God says He's going to help us soon, that could take awhile.
but He does hear us. He does care. He answers us when we pray. He is listening.
the least we can do is listen to Him in return.
