To ensure you can see everything you want, the first thing you need to do when you have this issue is head to Settings>>Notifications. The Notifications screen displays a list of all your apps that can send you notifications.

To make sure you see alerts when you are using the phone, go to Show Previews, and tick the Always(default) option.

And don't forget to enable the type of notification as Persistent.
