When we learned she was in labor, we enlisted an army of people to pray for our daughter. She was very sick with Covid.
Her covid symptoms disappeared when she walked into the hospital to have the baby. They came back the next day, but she’s improving steadily and able to care for her sweet baby boy.
The Lord listens when people pray.
“Give ear to my words, O Lord” (Psalm 5:1).
The Lord listens to every word you say.
Remember that when you pray.
Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live (Psalm 116:2).
Knowing the Lord listens motivates life-long prayer.
The disciples returned to Jesus and told him all they had done and taught (from Mark 6:30).
That’s why we pray. The Lord listens intently even though he already knows.
