When Does God Hear Us?

"God doesn't JUST hear us when we pray."  JCM August 2014
God hears our prayers, and everything else.  Do you think God just hears your cries for help but not your complaints?  Do you think God hears your words in time of need, but not your whining?  Do you think God just hears you when your soul is vexed.....but not when you're taking His name in vain?  
This is what God hears:
dark sayings, minced oaths, encouraging words, praise, gossip, songs, secrets, phone calls, lies, truth, all conversations, whispers, exclamations, murmurings, disputings, confessions, judgments,
clean jokes, dirty jokes, bad language, backbiting, talebearing, questions, answers......
So yes,
God hears your prayers.
And everything else.
Ecclesiastes 5:2  (KJV)
 Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God:
 for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.
Matthew 12:36
But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak,
 they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

James 3:11 (KJV)
 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place
 sweet water and bitter?
Psalm 19:14  (KJV)
 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart,
 be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
 Proverbs 4:23
Keep thy heart with all diligence;
 for out of it are the issues of life.
James 3:2King  (KJV) For in many things we offend all.
 If any man offend not in word,
 the same is a perfect man,
 and able also to bridle the whole body.
