God Hears Prayer
Psalm 65:2 "O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come"
The psalmist simply addresses the Lord as “thou that hearest prayer.” What an astonishing task it would be just to HEAR every righteous prayer in a 24-hour time frame. Lay aside everything else that the Lord has in His power to do and DOES do... He is “thou that hearest prayer.” Sometimes we don’t need advice or answers from others, we just need someone to hear us. As humans we are limited on how much we can really listen and limited in our compassion. Moses’ father-in-law had it right, if all you do is have a line of people coming to you for advice, you won’t last long. Our Lord not only hears prayer, but he answers. He says through Isaiah the prophet, “...before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.” I say, thou that hears and answers prayer!
