Junly 6, Today’s thought — Who Hears, Not Who Says

A glimpse of San Francisco on the way home from Monterey, CA

Good Morning

We all know that God does not listen to sinners,
but he listens to anyone who worships and obeys him. John 9:1

Most of our prayer lives could use a tune-up.
Some prayer lives lack consistency.
They’re either a desert or an oasis.
Long, arid, dry spells interrupted
by brief plunges into the waters of communion. . . .

Others of us need sincerity.
Our prayers are a bit hollow,
and rigid.
More liturgy than life.
And though they are daily,
they are dull.

Others lack, well, honesty.
We honestly wonder if prayer makes a difference.
Why on earth would God in heaven want tot talk to me?
IF God knows all,
who am I to tell him anything?
IF God controls all,
who am I to do anything?. . . .

Our prayers may be awkward.
Our attempts may be feeble.
But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it
and not the one who says it,
our prayers do make a difference.
He Still Moves Stones, Max Lucado

Now we know that God heareth not sinners:
but if any man be a worshipper of God,
and doeth his will, him he heareth. John 9:31

Trust God for your day. . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
