But God has surely listened and heard my voice in prayer. – (Psalm 66:19)

 

Have you ever prayed about something so long, that you weren’t even sure what to pray any longer? So often in the space where it seems like an eternity to us, it is actually a matter of God orchestrating lives and hearts for such a time as this to answer according to His good and perfect plan. He hears and knows our heart’s cry far better than we do ourselves, and even hears the silent whisperings of our heart that we can’t seem to give a voice. Though His answer may come in a different package than expected, He is faithful to answer, and His ways are good. May we continue to lift our voice unto the Lord in prayer, trusting that He hears, and is faithful to answer according to His good and perfect will.

 

The Lord hears our voice,The Lord Listens

as we lift His Name;

our ev’ry heart cry,

His peace He’ll proclaim.

He listens in love,

to each prayerful word;

each wonder whispered,

Lord Jesus has heard.

He’s faithful to act,

in our place of need;

all expectations,

His love shall exceed.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You listen and hear our voice in prayer. Thank You that You hear both the audible and inaudible prayers of our heart, and You move on our behalf. Thank You that You know what we need far better than we do, and that it is Your joy to bless us beyond what we could hope for. Forgive us for wanting to quit when perseverance is required. Teach us to trust You more, so that we may seek You first for the strength that is needed to endure the long road on which we are traveling. Lead us to love others beyond what they would expect or hope for, just as You so generously love each of us. May many come into a lasting relationship with You, Lord. Be exalted O God, as we lift our voices in prayer, knowing that You hear and move on our behalf. Amen.
