In Psalms 116:1-2 NLT the Bible says, “I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!”
These verses tell us that God is so responsive that we can always reach Him. It says He bends down and listens to our voices!
As Christians we need to remember that God is always near, always listening carefully to every prayer and that He answers each prayer.
Verses like this give me confidence and a desire to pray. Knowing He is near and listening is comforting.
Like it says in verse 2, “I will pray as long as I have breath”.
