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.

Genesis 26:26-31 Meanwhile, Abimelek had come to him from Gerar, with Ahuzzath his personal adviser and Phicol the commander of his forces. 27 Isaac asked them, “Why have you come to me, since you were hostile to me and sent me away?”
28 They answered, “We saw clearly that the LORD was with you; so we said, ‘There ought to be a sworn agreement between us’—between us and you. Let us make a treaty with you 29 that you will do us no harm, just as we did not harm you but always treated you well and sent you away peacefully. And now you are blessed by the LORD.”
30 Isaac then made a feast for them, and they ate and drank. 31 Early the next morning the men swore an oath to each other. Then Isaac sent them on their way, and they went away peacefully.
Genesis 22:13, 14 Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. 14 So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.
Genesis 21:1-3 Now the LORD was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did for Sarah what he had promised. 2 Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him. 3 Abraham gave the name Isaac to the son Sarah bore him.
Genesis 17:1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty; walk before me faithfully and be blameless.
Genesis 6:9 This is the account of Noah and his family.
Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.
