Praying God’s Promises

Lord, You have given us over 5,000 promises in Your Word for us to use and be blessed by them. In Psalm 19:14 you say,

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.

May Your Word fill my spirit with Your presence and let me walk through life hand in hand with You. For I confess that I am lost without You and I need You in my life. Therefore, guide my life that I might be all that You have called me to be.

Bless me that I might bless others. I invite you to come and live in the center of my life that You might be glorified and be lifted up. You, O Lord are my everything and I need You to guide my thoughts, words, and steps so that I might honor You with all that I say and do. Psalm 55:17 says,

Evening and morning and at noon I will pray, and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice.

Thank You, Lord that You are ever present and always available to listen to my prayers. Amen.

Every Word

I love the Lord because He hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because He bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath! — Psalm 116:1–2 NLT

“I love the Lord.” What a beautiful way to begin a praise, a new day, each moment of our lives! And then the psalmist begins to tell us why: God listens (Psalm 116:1), saves (Psalm 116:6), preserves (Psalm 116:6), delivers (Psalm 116:8), and sets us free (Psalm 116:16).

But it’s the heartwarming promise found in verse 2 that gives us a glimpse of the personal relationship God so longs to have with His children.

Because He bends down to listen.

What a beautiful image, the almighty God — Lord and Ruler of All — bends down to listen as we pray. Just imagine… God not only invites us to pray whenever, wherever, and about whatever we want, but He leans over, to get just a little closer, to make sure He doesn’t miss a word of what we have to say.

Holy Father, just the thought of You bending down to listen to me fills me with awe and joy and praise. Thank You for loving me so.
