Why Can't We See God?
We can't see God because He's invisible. But we can see what He does. Balloons are filled with air that we can't see, but we see the balloon get big as the air is put in. Just because we can't see God doesn't mean He isn't real. Believing that God is there even though we can't see Him is faith. Someday, in heaven, we will see God face to face.

How Can God Hear Everyone's Prayers At Once?
God can hear everyone's prayers at once because God is everywhere. We can only be at one place at a time, and usually we can't understand more than one person at a time. But God is not like us - He is not limited. God is infinitely greater than we are. He can hear thousands of prayers at once. Not only can God hear and understand everyone who is praying to him in many different languages, but he also can give each person his full attention. Isn't that great!

From dust ... to dust
After church, Jimmy tells his parents he has to go and talk to the priest right away. They agree and the priest greets the family. "I heard you say today that our bodies came from the dust." "That's right, Johnny, I did." "And I heard you say that when we die, our bodies go back to dust." "Yes, I'm glad you were listening. Why do you ask?" "Well you better come over to our house right away and look under my bed because there's someone either coming or going!"

One day, I saw two little girls crying a lot on a bench in the park. Thinking they might be hurt, I went over and asked them. "Are you all right?" Still crying, one girl showed me her doll and said, "My baby's arm came off." I took the doll from the girl and soon fixed her arm. "Thank you." came a whisper. Next, I asked her friend, "and what's the matter with you, young lady?" She wiped her cheeks and said, "I was helping her cry."
