Prayer gives us hope.
It is a most delightful reflection that if I come to the throne of God in prayer, I may feel a thousand defects, but yet there is hope.
Hope gives us the ability to keep moving forward, doesn’t it? Instead of caving in when we feel unsettled, we can go to the Lord and pour out our hearts to Him. And He listens, and His Spirit brings us comfort. I am always learning about prayer, and the significant thing for me is to stop the noise in my home: television, radio, cell phones, laptops . . . everything! I can’t concentrate on talking to the Lord, or receiving comfort from the Spirit when noise is clamoring for my attention.
Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have given me relief when I was in distress. Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!
