One of the intercessions I have been in for years is building a bridge and opening a pathway for people to be able to hear and see what the Lord is saying and doing.  There has been many aspects to this intercession and one of them is about overcoming a famine of hearing God. 


A famine of hearing God is a judgment caused by unbelief which is fueled by the deceitfulness of sin, rebellion and thus hardened hearts against hearing His Word.  It is terrible to be given over to this judgment because what accompanies this is blind eyes and deaf ears where a person is unable to repent because they dont see or hear what they are supposed to repent from.


Amos 8:11-12 NKJV

"Behold, the days are coming," says the Lord God, "That I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.

They shall wander from sea to sea, and from north to east; They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the Lord, but shall not find it.


Acts 19:8-10 NKJV

And he went into the synagogue and spoke boldly for three months, reasoning and persuading concerning the things of the kingdom of God. 9 But when some were hardened and did not believe, but spoke evil of the Way before the multitude, he departed from them and withdrew the disciples, reasoning daily in the school of Tyrannus. 10 And this continued for two years, so that all who dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.


Mark 6:52 NKJV

For they had not understood about the loaves, because their heart was hardened.


Mark 8:17-19 NKJV

But Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, "Why do you reason because you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive nor understand? Is your heart still hardened?  18 Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember? 


John 12:39-40 NKJV

Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again:  "He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, lest they should see with their eyes, lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, so that I should heal them."


Heb 3:12-15 NKJV

Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; 13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called "Today," lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, 15 while it is said: "Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion."


PRAYER:  Lord we earnestly desire to hear You.  We want Your Word above all else in our lives.  Please forgive our unbelief and hardness of hearts because we have rebelled against Your Word.  Our hearts are cold, we have little compassion.  Our faith is weak and we do not believe You.  Hearing Your Word and seeing Your works, we do not believe them or walk in them.  As a culture we have totally failed and disregarded Your Word.  We have chosen the world and its pleasure and not walked in obedience, nor have we chosen to please You with our lifestyles and choices.  Please grant us the gift of repentance, that we would see the Truth of where we have failed, and be able to repent and turn once again to You and Your Word.  Lord please deliver us from blind eyes and deaf ears.  Grant Your mercy to triumph so the famine of hearing would be broken in Jesus Name.
