Does God hear the prayers of unbelievers?



God hears everything, and He must pay attention to the prayers of unbelievers or else no one could become a believer. However, God does not grant all prayers but chooses to respond positively to those that are in accord with His will. People who know and do God's will, therefore, get more answers, as "The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective" (James 5:16, NIV).
