“Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath.”
Psalm 116:2 NLT
Your most luxurious and underused privilege is prayer.
It is mysterious and yet instinctively natural. When there is nowhere else to turn, your heart reaches up.
But you can easily miss the real power of it, the real advantage of being able to pray to a present God. One who has pierced time and eternity to hear you, to listen to all your words, to be your refuge in the world.
He awaits your words,
hears your heart,
soothes your fears,
challenges your assumptions,
strengthens your hands,
sharpens your focus,
adjusts your perspective.
It doesn’t matter how long or how many words you use. What matters is that you are connecting to your Creator and all that it aligns in you.
What matters is spending time in His presence. Prayer is a conversation, so spend some time listening too.
Listen to the voice of your Savior whispering powerful words of truth and identity. You are loved, chosen, blessed and cherished.
Find the time to connect with your Creator today. Lay before Him all that is in your heart because He is bending down to listen and love you.
