Verse Of The Day : Evening, morning, and at noon, I will cry out in distress. He will hear my voice. Psalms 55:17
Thought of The Day : God of all times can answer prayers at all times.
LISTEN : God hears prayers. He can never neglect a prayer of faith. Beloved, there is power in prayer. Genuine prayer will produce mind blowing results. He who is addicted to prayer can’t be empty of results. (Matthew 7:7,8). Prayer gives us the opportunity to access what God has freely given to us through Christ Jesus. When you pray, God answers. A person of prayer, is a person of power; for one who is connected to God is connected to divine authority. When prayer becomes a delight, divine attention becomes an undeniable experience. When we constantly “breath the air of prayer, we can’t suffocate for lack of spiritual oxygen – the Spirit of God.” Beloved, how much do you pray? Does prayer matter to you? Prayer is vital to the survival of our faith, and when it’s neglected trouble is invited. The Bible says,
“And said unto them, Why sleep all of you? rise and pray, lest all of you enter into temptation.“
Luke 22 : 46
Prayer is a channel of communication with God, and should be taken seriously. Prayer is not the last resort, but the best and rewarding resort. Prayer affords us spiritual support and refuge. It gives strength that our human strength can’t give. David acknowledged this truth when he prayed in our verse of the day and said, “Evening, morning, and at noon, I will cry out in distress. He will hear my voice.” (Psalms 55 : 17). Beloved, don’t faint or give up praying. Remember, God of all times can answer prayers at all times. A man once said, “If there is a man to pray, there is a God to answer.” So keep on praying, God will surely hear you. His ears are itching to hear you pray. So pray and don’t give up. Be wise!
