Have you ever had something really important to say? Something that consumed your very being it seemed, yet there was no one there to listen? Or perhaps there were many people that could have listened, but you couldn't get their attention. Life is hectic. Life is busy. Too often we are asked to take a proverbial "number" in order to be heard. Many times we fight to be heard; clamor for the attention of another. Suddenly, in the battle of being heard, this becomes our anthem: "Listen to me!! I have something worthwhile and important to say!"
As children of the most high God, our very beings are filled with great worth. We are precious in the sight of God. He is are maker, we are his creation. As such, should that not suggest that our very thoughts, concerns, fears, questions, joys, sorrows, successes and triumphs ought to have the utmost importance to Him who created us?
I testify that God is anxious to hear from us. In our highest of highs, and lowest of lows, God is ready and willing to hear and answer our prayers. Prayer is the purest form of communication we can have with the greatest of all, even our Father in Heaven. When the world is to busy, God never is. When our cry for help seems to have fallen on deaf ears, God always hears.
"If ye then...know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?" (Matthew 7:11) I know that God does hear and answer our prayers, and if we listen, we can hear him speaking back to us through the power of His spirit. I know that God never has, nor will he ever leave us alone.
