I love the Lord, because He has heard My voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live. Psalm 116:1-2
The Lord hears us when we pray. The one who has created all things and holds all things together by His grace and power, stops to listen when we pray. The key is praying according to His will and this simply happens as we come to know Him.
As we come to know Him we are changed and transformed. Our hearts and lives are changed for all eternity. As our minds become one with His our prayers naturally align with His will. It is the fervent prayer of a righteous man that availth much. Let us press on in the place of prayer.
