But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.
He hears our prayers. He hears, and the very fact that He hears, assures us that He, in turn, will answer us. Prayer is not a one-way street. Prayer was never meant to be a list of demands or a message we leave on an answering machine. Prayer is a conversation. Leanne Payne in her book Listening Prayer writes, “That our God is faithful to hear and answer all prayer is something I want to shout from the housetop.” Dallas Willard in his book Hearing God writes, “A Biblical Christian is not just someone who holds certain beliefs about the Bible. He or she is also someone who leads the kind of life demonstrated in the Bible: a life of personal, intelligent interaction with God.” We worship the God who listens. We serve the God who answers. Our God desires a conversation. Isn’t it time you really talked to Him? Today, talk to God. Share with Him your concerns, desires, and hopes. But don’t just pray. Converse with Him. Ask Him questions and listen for answers.
Father, today I come to You to have a conversation. You have called me Your “friend” so I come as a friend. As I pour out my heart to You, as I strike up a conversation, tune my heart to hear Your reply. Fill my heart with Your peace, joy, and hope. Might I experience Your loving presence during our time together. In Jesus’ name.
