Someone Who Listens

Lamentations 3.png

I called on your name, Lord, from the depths of the pit. You heard my plea: “Do not close your ears to my cry for relief.” You came near when I called you, and you said, “Do not fear.”                               Lamentations 3:55-57

The urge to talk to the Creator is part of who we are. It was created in us by the one who made us. Because we are, because we are alive and breathing, we pray. We pray because we simply need to talk with someone and many times we simply need someone just to listen and not judge us as humans have. Sometimes our pain goes so deep within our soul, that we just don’t want to share it with others. At times, in the still quiet of a sleepless night, we need to take our worries and fears, the ones that don’t seem quite so troubling in the daylight, to someone who cares and understands. Then there are days when our hearts are so full of joy, they are about to burst, and we’ve got to share it with the one we know is responsible. 

When their comes a time that you seem to be at a loss in knowing what to say, remember that the Spirit himself intercedes for you with groans that words cannot express. Some of your prayers that you consider frantic and unintelligible are actually quite profound. They rise from the depths of your heart, all the way to heaven. To form deep prayers, you need only turn toward Jesus with the concerns that lie heavy on your heart.

Jesus wants you to watch in hope as you wait for him, your Lord and Savior. Wait expectantly: confident that he will do what is best for you. The longer you have to wait, the more you must rely on your trust in him. If you begin to feel anxious, seek his help with short prayers. Jesus fill me with your peace, and he will. As you put your hope in him, his unfailing love rest peacefully upon you. Always remember that the line is always open to our Heavenly Father, and their is never a busy signal, so when you need to talk with someone, just begin talking and believe me, he is always willing to listen.

Talking With The King!

Ephesians 6Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or more gather in my name, there am I with them.                                                     Matthew 18:19-20

In the same way, the Spirit helps is in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.                         Romans 8:26-27

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.                Philippians 4:6

Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.                           Mark 1:35

Thru out the Scriptures we see how important prayer truly is, and yet we as humans seem to lack in, as we continue to journey with the Lord. The great prophets also knew how important it is to prayer, first off to thank God for every kind of blessings he has given to you, and of course your concerns. Yes it is true that God knows everything about of including any concerns that is weighing heavy on our hearts, however what God wants is you and me to have a relationship with us and one way is thru our prayer life everyday. For myself anytime that something or someone is laying heavy on my heart I reach out to my prayer warriors and ask others to pray for the situation. The book of Psalm is filled with many prayers in which some was written by King David himself, and believe me whatever the problem or even joy you may have in your heart the words in the book of Psalm will and can ring true to your own journey.

Just marvel at the wonder of it all being able to have a relationship with the “King of Kings”, the “Great I Am” “Jesus Christ. Do not take this awesome prayer-privilege for granted! Don’t let foolish arrogance step in either, making you act as if you are doing Jesus a favor by spending time talking with him. The best thing is to remember such foolishness is recognizing it and repenting it. Prayer is a two way conversation it is not us doing all of the talking, you need to take the time to “Be Still and Know He is God” (Psalm 46:10) it is true that time of silent we can come to know and understand what God is calling us to do with our own lives and for him. Jesus is our shepherd, tenderly leading you and me step by step through out own lives, which is so wonderful for us to remember. Jesus wants you and me to know how precious we truly are to him, he wants to hear it all, no hiding from anything because believe me he already knows all about each and everyone of us. And when those times come during your prayer time just focus your eyes upon the King and Kings, just spending time with him will bring you the peace your heart longs for.
