When I pray I am confident the Lord hears my prayers. I have the privilege of hosting a prayer segment on the radio about every two months for a week. This week I am hosting The Pause for Prayer radio broadcast on the Cleveland Moody Radio Broadcasting station. I have been doing this for many years and it has brought tremendous joy to me. I really enjoy sharing tips to help you spiritually develop especially in communicating with the Lord, or prayer. The primary focus of the program is to “help broaden your perspective in prayer and see the world with the eyes of Christ.” So I have included today’s broadcast to encourage you in developing your relationship with The Lord. You can also listen online at 7:45 am, 2:56 pm, and 8:28 pm Easter Standard Time.
Are you calling out to God for help today?
The Lord hears His people when they call to Him for help. He rescues them from all their trouble. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to rescue each time. — Psalm 34:17-19 NLT
Do you need Him to rescue you from your troubles? Maybe you have a friend who is going through a difficult season. God knows and He cares!
As soon as a parent hears their child call out for help, they respond. Regardless of the age of your child; whether old or a newborn infant, the parenting genes automatically respond to the cry for help. Likewise our Father God is waiting to respond to your prayers and pleas with infinite love and power. He hears you immediately and like any parent He willingly comes to your aid.
Would you pray with me?
Father we ask You to reveal the condition of our hearts and hear our prayers. Father we acknowledge there have been times when we failed to seek you first.
Thank you for always hearing our cries for help and for coming to our rescue. We praise You today for you are great and mighty. You are able to comfort and protect your people in any and all circumstances. Although the world appears to be more violent and dangerous with each passing day. You remain faithful. Help each of us to remember that we are never alone. Remind us when we feel disconnected that you are right beside us even in our darkest hours.
We thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit who comforts us! You are the One who bottles our tears as they slowly trickle down our face. With tenderness and love you protect us from danger. God we are grateful that you pick us up when we fall down. Most of all we thank You that we are your children. Amen.
