Lord, Hear My Prayer
"Lord hear my prayer. Listen to my plea.
Don't turn away from me in this time....Bend your ear and give me speedy
answers" Psalm 102:1-2.
Recently my husband and I saw a rerun of a
movie where the main character played the part of being God for a season
in his life. He thought it was great to have the power to change
circumstances for himself and others.
One day while sitting at his computer all these emails started coming
in....thousands of prayer requests. He found it was impossible to
answer them all and he quickly became very frustrated and threw up his
hands in defeat.
Aren't you thankful that's not the way it is with
our God? He hears every prayer we plead. Can't you just envision Him
bending His ear down to hear your prayer today? Isn't that an awesome
picture to visualize. Our passage says He bends down and answers
We can't even imagine how God can possibly hear every
prayer much less attend to each one but that's His promise....therefore
we believe. He is omnipresent and omniscient.
It is not always
prudent to ask for speedy answers but at very difficult times it is
often our heart's desire. We want answers quickly, we want the
difficulty to stop, we want to know He is listening.
from this passage today. Even if you don't see speedy answers believe
that He heard and will answer in His time. Remember His ways, His times
are not ours. Maybe He needs to do a work in you or in the person you
are praying for while you are in the waiting period. Trust Him to
answer your prayer right on time, every time.
