Thankful for Prayer

Hebrews 4:15-16

When we need a listening ear, we have someone to talk to who understands our concern. He is accessible to us anytime, day or night. We call Him God. He wants us to feel free to step into his throne room and discuss what’s on our hearts.

We can tell God anything, even things we consider too personal to share with our closest earthly friend. We can share with Him how we really feel about the circumstances surrounding our jobs, our homes, and our families.

At present, in our nation, we see and hear of businesses having to cut back expenses. Others are facing having to close their doors. Government entities are not immune to these issues. A common factor in all these decisions is the effect on the employees and their families. Children have to be fed and clothed. The mortgages will still need to be met. Utilities bills will have to be paid. But, the most important thing we can do for those who are caught in this plight is pray. Sometime prayer is the only thing we can do.

Jesus-our High Priest, presents requests to the Father on our behalf. We as Christian brothers and sisters model His behavior by doing the same with petitions and needs of others we hold dear.

Thank you, Lord for listening to us, Your children, when we pray. You are never too busy for us. You always act in our best interest. We thank you for your watch care over us. AMEN
