I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live. – Psalm 116:1-2

They say love is blind, but I’ve heard it said that when we love God our affection has its eyes open and can sustain itself with the most rigid logic. In other words, we love Him because He first loved us. It just makes sense.

David spent so much time in prayer with the Lord. The Psalms are full of his prayers, praise, and petitions and I love to spend time reading them. Many times when David prayed, he couldn’t find the words, but God listened and knew his heart and answered him anyway.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had some pretty rough days in the past year. There have been times I was at a loss for HOW to pray, I couldn’t find the words to say to express my grief, anger, and frustrations to the Lord. But the Bible says that He inclines His ear to us – He is waiting and listening for us to pray to him – whether or not we are able to use our voice – He hears us, because Jesus is making intercession for us.

I will praise the Lord today because He listens to my prayers. Spurgeon said, “Answered prayers are silken bonds which bind our hearts to God. When a man’s prayers are answered, love is the natural result.” I love the Lord my God and praise Him for answering my prayers.
