God loves us, coming to Him in prayer. There is no other time more intimate than prayer. He hears us when we silence the world and look only to Him. Have you been able to experience this feeling yet today? The moments we all experience are full of anxiousness, joy, worry, gratefulness, and pain. The list can go on depending on where you are in your current life stage and/or the circumstance you are walking through.
Blessed be the Lord.
Because He has heard the voice of my supplications! The Lord is my strength and my shield. My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart greatly rejoices. And with my song I will praise Him.
Do you need strength?
Do you need protection?
Do you need help?
God is present right now. It helps us stay close to God. We open our hearts to Him, and He can work in and through us. Our relationship with Him grows closer with each prayer.
C.S. Lewis said, “I pray because I can’t help myself… I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping. It doesn’t change God. It changes me.”
