2 Chronicles 4-7 (Click to read Today’s Word)
2 Chronicles 6:40 40 Now, my God, I pray, let Your eyes be open and let Your
ears be attentive to the prayer made in this place. Believers need God's attention to their prayers.
You may recall the movie, Bruce Almighty. An ordinary loser, played by Jim Carey, is given all the power of God. But he also had the responsibility to hear the requests of all the people. It was such a burden that he devised a computer program to automatically say yes to every single prayer concern. It was a disaster...Hollywood style.
Solomon made a powerful request of God, "...let Your eyes be open and let Your ears be attentive to the prayer made in this place". He wanted God to hear every single thing said and see every heart as only HE can see.
We need God's attention to our prayers...because...HE IS ALL KNOWING. He knows things we could never imagine. His understanding of STUFF is beyond our comprehension.
We need God's attention to our prayers...because...HE IS ALL POWERFUL. Only HE can do what is needed in any given situation. By the way, HE doesn't need a computer program to say, "YES" to every prayer of HIS people. He knows exactly how much of HIS awesome power to bear on any given request.
We need God's attention to our prayers...because...HE IS ALL PRESENT. He knows every prayer because HE is there...HE is here. As you pray today HIS eyes are open to your pain. His heart is touched by your struggle. YOU are not alone.
Believers need God's attention to their prayers.
Father, You see our hurt...You hear our cry...I praise YOUR Holy name...In Jesus Name...AMEN!!!
