Spiritual Warfare: 'God Hears My Prayer!'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, October 18, 2022

I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath! Death wrapped its ropes around me; the terrors of the grave overtook me. I saw only trouble and sorrow. Then I called on the name of the Lord: “Please, Lord, save me!"
— Psalm 116:1-4 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, I praise You for hearing my voice and my prayers for mercy and grace. Thank You for lending me Your ear and caring about my problems and trials. Forgive me for not coming to You sooner; for waiting until I’ve exhausted all my human efforts before seeking Your help and advice. Remind me that every time I’m overwhelmed suddenly with troubles and sorrows, You are ready and anxious to listen to my pleas. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
