“At this, the man’s ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly.” Mark 7:35

The deaf man didn’t hear Jesus’ prayer. He waited in silence, until he sensed a change and found he could hear and speak. Likewise, we don’t hear Jesus’ prayers for us but we know he intercedes for us. “Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us” (Romans 8:34). We wait in silence, knowing he hears our prayers. We wait until we sense a change.
