My beloved, we all need to stop criticizing, gossiping and being indifference with one another. We also need to be more faithful, unselfish, loyal and truthful each day. Add to that preparedness, promptness, perseverance, politeness and especially we need prayer to our Creator, who breathed into man the breath of life.
Every year thousands of letters addressed to God find their way to a post office in Jerusalem. One letter, addressed to “God of Israel,” requested assistance in getting a job as a bulldozer driver. One man asked forgiveness for stealing money from a grocery store when he was a child.
But were those heartfelt requests heard by God? The psalmist said that God is the one who hears prayer (Psalm 65:2). Whether we say our prayers silently, voice them aloud, or write them on paper, they go directly to God; however, He doesn’t answer every request as we would wish. Our petitions may be self-serving (James 4:3), or sin may be blocking our fellowship with Him (Psalm 66:18).
More than giving us what we want, the Lord knows our deepest needs, and He wants us to discover the joy of His presence each and every day. Because of our faith in Christ Jesus, praying becomes our means of communion with God, not just a list of things we want from Him.
In His infinite wisdom, God hears all our prayers. In His marvelous grace, He offers forgiveness for all our sins and in His love; He gives us eternal and abundant life through His Son, Jesus Christ.
God hears more than our words = He listens to our heart.
