“He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry. When He hears it, He will answer you.” Isaiah 30:19.
God hears prayer, God delights to hear prayer. He has allowed His people a thousand times over to be tried, that they might be compelled to cry to Him, and learn to know Him as the Hearer of Prayer.
Let us confess with shame how little we have believed this wondrous truth, in the sense of receiving it into the heart, and allowing it to possess and control our whole being. That we accept a truth is not enough; the living God, of whom the truth speaks, must in its light so be revealed, that our whole life is spent in His presence, with the consciousness as clear as in a little child toward its earthly parent. I know for certain my father hears me.
- Andrew Murray
The fact that our God, our Heavenly Father, is indeed the Hearer of Prayer should inspire us to reach out to attain to the very highest development and experiences in our prayer life. More prayer, greater prayers, larger results should be our constant aim.
