He Will Hear And Answer You
Psalm 55.16-17 NKJV "As for me, I will call upon God, and the Lord shall save me. Evening and morning and at noon I will pray, and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice."
Remember the prophets of Baal in the time of Elijah? They called on the name of Baal from morning till noon, saying, “O Baal, hear us!” But there was no voice; no one answered. They leaped about the altar which they had made. They cried aloud, and cut themselves, as was their custom, with knives and lances, until the blood gushed out on them. They prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice. But there was no voice; no one answered, no one paid attention.
Baal was a dead god. But our God, the only God, is alive! He hears, He sees, He feels, and He answers prayers! Hallelujah!
1John 5.14-15 says, "Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him." You can be as sure as David was that God will hear you when you pray. Call upon Him, cry aloud, pray in faith, in the morning, afternoon and in the evening: He will surely answer your prayers. Amen.
