God hears us when we call – Prayer for September 8. Praise the Lord everybody! Old time believers have a saying “he or she knows how to get a prayer through.” Making one think that they had a special power or something. Turns out there is a way for every believer to have that same “power.”
Bible Verse for Today
“God states if my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
God wants to not only hear our prayers, but He also wants to do something about them, but He has given us some guidelines we must follow in order for us to be in position to be heard. Most of us have the prayer part right. We can put some words together that are like honey for the ears, but we fall short when it comes down to humbling ourselves before Him, repenting of our sins and diligently seeking God’s face.
We can’t keep running to God with our petitions like everything in our lives is alright, just great, when in actuality there is sin in our camp. Go read about Achan in 7th chapter of Joshua and see what happened to him when he had hidden sin in his camp.
The Bible says the sin of disobedience is as the sin of witchcraft and this is the sin we most often over look. God has given us an assignment and we, for whatever reason, do not carry it out, we don’t even try sometimes. Then we go before God to ask of Him without confessing or asking forgiveness for our disobedience.
We need to look at ourselves and make sure we are in position to be heard by God ourselves
The next time you need to “get a prayer through” we don’t need to go see another sister or brother in the Lord who has the “power.” We need to look at ourselves and make sure we are in position to be heard by God ourselves. Remember God hears us when we call. God bless you all.
