Daily D – Psalm 66:20
Blessed be God! He has not turned away my prayer or turned his faithful love from me.
PSALM 66:20 (CSB)
Two things are true now and forever: God hears and answers our prayers. His faithful love endures forever.
Two other psalms come to mind when I read this verse. Psalm 116:1, 2 in the NLT says,
Because he bends down to listen,
I will pray as long as I have breath!
How does God respond to our prayers? He leans in.
Psalm 136:1 begins,
His faithful love endures forever.
This pattern flows across the next twenty-five verses. God’s attributes, character, and activity are placed on display in the first half of the verse. The second half states that this is evidence of his faithful love.
How does God feel about you today? His love endures forever.
Today and every day now and forevermore, know that God leans in to hear your prayer.
Today and every day now and forevermore, know that God’s love for you endures forever.
I will praise God for these twin truths.
Our Father, you invite our prayers. You welcome each one. You hear them with a loving heart. You answer them better than we pray them. We never have to wonder how you feel about us. You settled that forever on the cross, in the resurrection, at the ascension, and on Pentecost. We are forever loved. We are forever heard. How could we not praise you? Amen.

6 Then the LORD spoke to Job out of the storm:
7 “Brace yourself like a man;
I will question you,
and you shall answer me.
8 “Would you discredit my justice?
Would you condemn me to justify yourself?
9 Do you have an arm like God’s,
and can your voice thunder like his?
10 Then adorn yourself with glory and splendor,
and clothe yourself in honor and majesty.
11 Unleash the fury of your wrath,
look at all who are proud and bring them low,
12 look at all who are proud and humble them,
crush the wicked where they stand.
13 Bury them all in the dust together;
shroud their faces in the grave.
14 Then I myself will admit to you
that your own right hand can save you
The New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2011), Job 40:6–14.
Job 29:21-25 21 “People listened to me expectantly,
waiting in silence for my counsel.
22 After I had spoken, they spoke no more;
my words fell gently on their ears.
23 They waited for me as for showers
and drank in my words as the spring rain.
24 When I smiled at them, they scarcely believed it;
the light of my face was precious to them.
25 I chose the way for them and sat as their chief;
I dwelt as a king among his troops;
I was like one who comforts mourners.
