Last week we soaked up the assurance of Immanuel, God always with us. That word always sends a gentle awe through me. The Creator, Lord of the Universe, dwells with me?
This week, be confident of another amazing truth: He hears our prayers.
Hundreds of books have been written on the subject. No matter how long we live on this earth and how long we have been a child of God — we’ll still be learning about prayer. And that’s because prayer is a relationship with the limitless, eternal Almighty.
Our praying is based on one hope: we know that He hears.
Because he bends down to listen,
I will pray as long as I have breath!
Because he bends down to listen. That phrase amazes me as much as Immanuel. Ponder that hope today. The Almighty God bends down to listen when I talk to Him?
This week, meditate on that great confidence.
I am praying to you because I know you will answer, O God.
Bend down and listen as I pray.
