Psalm 17:6, 7 
“I call on you, God, 
because you will answer me; 
listen closely to me; hear what I say. 
Display the wonders of your faithful love, 
Savior of all who seek refuge 
from those who rebel against your right hand.” (CSB)

“I am praying to you because I know you will answer, O God. 
Bend down and listen as I pray. 
Show me your unfailing love in wonderful ways. 
By your mighty power you rescue 
those who seek refuge from their enemies.” (NLT)

God-confident people turn to God in prayer because they know he is listening. It is his nature and delight. He bends down, leans in, and focuses intently on the condition of our hearts expressed as best we can with the words we say. Even when it feels awkward to us, even when we cannot pray as well as aging pastors and practiced saints, God listens. 

God also responds. Having heard the true concern of our hearts which is deeper and purer than our clumsy words, he takes action. He does what is right, just, fair, and compassionate. He is timely and timeless in his answers. His engagement demonstrates his loving disposition. His reaction expresses his unfailing love in wonderful ways. 

God rescues. God saves. 

God hears our hearts, heals our hearts, and helps us on our way. 

What better way to begin and end the day?

What better way to turn to throughout the day?

What better way to transition into this day?

I will pray because God hears everything I say.

Our Father, thank you for bending down, for leaning in, for hearing my prayers, and for answering them better than I pray them. Your perfect love is on display as you listen when I pray. I will pray now. I will pray when I lie down tonight. I will pray all along the journey today. I will trust you to always do what is right for now and forever. Amen.
