God answers prayer. Jesus sees our suffering. He cares!
He hears us when we humble ourselves before Him. He hears us when we pray fervently. He hears us when we cast our cares upon Him. He hears us when we put others' needs above our own. He hears us when we give Him honor and glory for all He has already done for us. He hears us when we thank Him for His promises. He hears us when we pray according to His will. He hears us when we look to Him for wisdom.
He makes even our enemies at peace with us. He promises to direct our steps and guide our paths. He communes with us through the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. He is our shield when we put all our trust in Him. He is our provider and protector. He is our all in all.
Seek His face today because of Who He is. Read His word for the renewing of your mind as you meditate upon His goodness and love and mercy. Lift up the needs of the saints. Bless His holy name.
Remember our brother Carman today, languishing with cancer and all our brothers and sisters in Christ who are hurting. Do so with fervency. Amen.
“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." Luke 11:9-10
"Bless the LORD, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
"Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
"Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
"Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies"
