It doesn’t matter where you are and what the weight may be, God hears when you call and His answer will be the best for that situation.


God is near

Distance is no barrier to God
He hears the faintest whisper
He sees the tiniest tear
And He sends the finest answer

  • Ozoguejiofor Uche Jacinta

    God is everywhere. In the air we breathe, even in the darkest places he sees all. He knows all. Down to the number of hairs on our head.

  • Agwu Tochukwu Frank

    Truly, no place is hidden from God. Never shall one be thrown to where God cannot find. The whole earth lies bare before it’s Creator. He hears our faintiest groan. He knows all our hearts.

  • Nwangwu chisom

    Yes indeed He is near. So many times people are of the notion that because God is seems far from them or maybe because they can’t witness Him in person, they carry this lie about that God isn’t with them or doesn’t understand what they go through. But He isn’t just near us, He lives in us and that is the greatest thing ever. Some many aren’t in this light. That’s why God said my people suffer because of lack of knowledge. And as His in us. He is more willing for our success than ourselves. All the answers we find are in the bible, He has given us all the answers we could ever need

    Very short and wonderful

    God said in his word that its only sin that serves as a hindrance from him hearing us. So living a life without sin,Gods ear is ever open to hear our call.

  • Ebere

    Truly,distance is not a barrier for God to answer our prayers because he is everywhere.All we need to do is to believe and have faith in him.

  • Onyeka Stanley

    Distance might be a setback for us and we invented telephones and smartphones but for God he’s omnipresent. I think we should come to the assurance that he can hear us anytime we speak not just when we’re praying.

  • Thank you ma for this poem it made me to know that God is always near and here for, me though i might not see him physically but his presence is always here with me. Distance is not an obstacle for God, He is everywhere watching over and looking out for us. God bless you ma

  • Orji Chidiebube Prudence

    God knows our fears and weaknesses, he sees the best in us when others sees our faults.

  • Brown Bethel Ogadimma

    Yes, God is always near. But the question is, how many of us can realize this, that God is closer to us than we even imagine. That why He is called the omini present. Sometimes because of our sin, the devil makes us believe that God is far from us and can never hear us.

  • Njoku Chineme

    Even our silent heart desires, God knows. Our unspoken problems, God knows. I’m very much convinced that he answers our littlest prayers and grants us grace even when we do not expect him to. God is indeed near!!!

  • Nnabuihe Victoria

    God know our heart desires and he know the problem we are facing and he hears our prayer. God is indeed near.

  • Anthony patience

    God hears the tiniest of our cries and comes to our rescue.
    To God, distance is never a barrier.

  • oboni veronica

    God hears the prayers of his children and distance is not a barrier
