The God who hears

And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. God saw the people of Israel, and God knew.  EXODUS 2:24-25 (ESV)

Greatest of listeners, thank You for hearing us when we call to You. In our simplest joys and through our deepest sorrows, we present our requests to You because You are the only one who has the power to give us what we need and so much more. The troubles of this world grow ever burdensome, but this grace is given to us: we may lift these burdens to You. So here they are. Here our groaning, Abba.

Remember the covenant You made with the patriarchs to enlarge, bless, and protect Your people. Do not forsake us or leave us prey to the devil’s sly ways. Though my heart is in anguish, I am able to take courage. You have heard. You remember. You see and You know. You know much more than I do about the state of my heart and of the world around me. You see into the depths of my overwhelmed spirit with the blessed eyes of the Creator, which see the problem much clearer that I.

You know the remedy. You delivered Your people from bondage in Egypt. Deliver me from the bondage of sin today. Thank You that through Jesus, You provided the rescue. Let me never doubt that in Your wisdom, You are also acting.

Amen.
