The expression "From your lips to God’s ears" is a statement of the truth that a human, a created being, can speak to God, their creator, and He will hear what they say and act upon it. Each and every one of us can speak directly to God without the aid of telephones, cellphones, smart phones, radios and any and all online aspects of the Internet. In fact, for all the vaunted speed of modern communications technology, it cannot compare to the speed by which a person’s prayer can reach God. Prayer is a far more secure and effective means of communication than even the most powerfully encrypted and advanced piece of communication technology designed by man. More importantly, when God answers prayers, even if He answers them in ways we do not expect, He delivers more effectively than the people with whom we communicate through man-made means. Also, unlike the Internet and other man-made communications technology, our ability to communicate with God is not dependent upon the availability of electricity. Indeed, if the day ever comes that for whatever terrible reason our communications technology suffers global, catastrophic failure, our ability to contact God will not diminished, but will still be just as reliable and just as effective as it has always been and always will be.
