Grandpa, I have a question: Can a milion people  pray to God at the same time and still hope God will hear them?

I have no idea, but C.S Lewis may help:
"Almost certainly God is not in Time. His life does not consist of moments following one another.
If a milion people are praying to Him at 10:30 tonight, He need not listen to them all in that little snippet which we call 10:30. Ten- thirty and every othe moment from the begining of the world is always the Present for Him. If you like to put it that way, He has all eternity in which to listen to the split second of prayer put up by a pilot as his plane crashes in flames.
That is difficult, I know.
Let me try to give something, not the same, but a bit like it. Suppose I am writing a novel. I write "Mary laid down her work; next moment came a knock at the door!"
For Mary who has to live in the imaginary time of my story there is no interval between putting down the work and hearing the knock. But I, who am Mary's maker, do not live in that imaginary time at all. Between writing the first half o that sentence and the second, I might sit down for 3 hours and think steadily about Mary. I could think about Mary as  if she were the only caracter in the book and for as long as I pleased, and the hours I spent in doing so would not appear in Mary's time ( the time inside the story) at all". (Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis)
