God is listening - Day 22 - Drawing Closer to God

Sometimes it may seem as if God isn’t listening to our prayers. But God is listening. It’s just that He isn’t answering them in the way that we think He should. That’s why we need patience and faith. Now is a great time to grow in both these areas. (Day 22 – YouTube)

DAY 22 – God is listening

God is always available and He’s always listening.


Incline Your ear, O LORD, and answer me, for I am distressed and needy [I long for Your help]. Protect my life (soul), for I am godly and faithful;

O You my God, save Your servant, who trusts in You [believing in You and relying on You, confidently committing everything to You.]

Be gracious and merciful to me, O Lord, for to You I cry out all the day long. Make Your servant rejoice, For to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul [all that I am – in prayer].

For You, O Lord, are good, and ready to forgive [our sins, sending them away, completely letting them go forever and ever]; and abundant in lovingkindness and overflowing in mercy to all those who call upon You.

Hear, O Lord, my prayer; and listen attentively to the voice of my supplications (specific requests)! In the day of my trouble I will call upon You, for You will answer me.
Psalm 86:1-7 AMP
