Let God Hear Your Prayers
September 9, 2022 by revbruce
The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right,
and his ears are open to their prayers.
But the Lord turns his face
against those who do evil.
– 1 Peter 3:12 (NLT)
Our Prayers Have Power
Our prayers are said to have power.
We need to understand that power of prayer.
Our prayers have the power to get God’s attention.
Peter was seeking to correct misunderstandings and misconceptions about prayer. He put an emphasis on quoting a key passage from Psalm 34. I actually like the way that another blogger lays this out via Psalm 34:12-14. In all honesty, we get a big boost to our look into the power of the believer provided by God in both the passage from the Book of Psalms and the epistle written by Peter.
We can get God’s attention.
Now that’s powerful.
Amazing things happen when you pray.
