God Still Answers Prayer
Prayer changes things. It is so important to pray. It doesn't make a difference where you are or how people perceive you when you are praying. Hannah was a woman who was determined to get something from God. She went and prayed and Eli the priest thought she was drunk because her mouth moved but no words came out. Hannah was whispering her prayer to God and to God alone. She assured him that she was pouring her soul out before the Lord. I encourage you to whisper your prayer to God as you go throughout this day. When things get tough whisper your prayer to God.
When things are a little out of sorts whisper your prayer to God. Pour out your heart to Him for The Lord hears your prayers. Not only will God hear your prayers, but God will also answer your prayers. God answered Hannah's prayer as she prayed for a son and God gave her Samuel. Some may not know what to say when it comes to prayer, but you just tell God what's on your heart and He will hear you. You don't need fancy words just a sincere heart like Hannah's. Prayer will turn it around for you, not just today but always. God is still in the Prayer answering business, and yes He will hear and answer even you.
I will continue to take all of my cares and burdens to The Lord because I know He still answers prayer and I am confident because It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Thank you Lord for hearing me when I pray, and thank you for answering my prayers that I lift to you daily. Thank you Lord for always being there for me. In Jesus Name Amen.
