Put cotton in your own ears and ask, “Can everybody still hear me now?” The answer will be yes because they don’t have their cotton in yet, but pretend that you can’t hear them. Ask other questions & have fun with this. Take the cotton out of your ears and tell them to put cotton in their own ears.

Ask them to listen carefully because you’re going to say something important. Then ask them a question or two. 9. Be sure to speak softly so that they cannot hear you or can only barely hear you. 10. After a few tries (and have lots of fun with them on this) get them to remove the cotton.

Take it to the Next Level Point out that it’s hard to hear when your ears are stopped up. Then, ask: • Do you think God’s ears are ever stopped up? • Does God always hear us? • Is there anything that might prevent God from hearing us?

Even when it may seem like God is not listening, we can have confidence that He is listening and that He cares. God is not deaf, nor is he ignoring us – we need to keep praying and have faith. Sometimes when we pray we may get the impression that either God is not listening, doesn’t hear or worse, doesn’t care. Assure them that God does hear, He does care. We need to have faith and continue to pray because God will answer in His time in the best way.
