Christianity--Prayers/Silent prayer



I have some questions about silent prayer.

Is praying silently, in my mind, as powerful as praying aloud?

Can God hear silent prayers?

When I pray silently, should I call God "God" or "Father"?

Thank you.


Dear Kari,

A silent prayer is effective, God still hears your prayer, and will answer. A prayer out loud is just as powerful, because God says there is power in the tongue. When you speak out loud, your words are something that moves Angels. It lets the Devil and his demons know that you are petitioning God, and an answer is on its way. So it is up to you, I pray both ways, and God answers me.

Praise God, I can stand with you and believe God for your blessing. I can pray with you, when you need a friend. I have not studied at any Colleges but I have picked up the Word of God and read it for myself. His Holy Spirit will stand in agreement with us. If we pray according to His Word.


God is good and has brought me through may trials, whether self-inflicted or not. Our lives may seem hopeless but as long as there is breath in our lungs, there is always hope. I want Gods people to know this, as well as the lost. I remember I wanted to sing professionally for the Lord, but I did not have the voice to do it. I prayed and asked God to bless me in this area. I forgot that I had even prayed this prayer and two weeks later God supernaturally blessed me with an awesome voice. I believe God for the impossible, because He is the possible.
