Thank You Father God
Hello dear readers. It’s Day 7 of my blog challenge to write a gratitude post for 21 consecutive days.
Why not join me in this Gratitude challenge?
You can simply share your own post and link back to mine, or leave your contribution in a comment box below.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I want to thank you today that you are a God who hears and answers prayers.
It is such a blessing, such a relief to know that I can come to you at any time of the day or night and share my concerns, fears and problems with you. It is reassuring to know that my prayers have not fallen upon deaf ears.
Unlike other “gods” who may have ears but cannot hear and may have mouths but cannot speak, you are a true and living God!
You have promised in your Word that before I even call, you will answer me and whilst I am still speaking you will hear (Isaiah 65:24 NKJV).
Father God, I thank you for those prayers that you have answered in the past – prayers for healing, prayers for protection or provision, prayers for deliverance from fear and for peace, prayers for intervention in family issues, prayers for direction.
And yes, there have been requests that were denied and there are prayers for which I still await a response (or have I somehow failed to realise that your answer is “No”?), however, these do not take away from my past experience, or current confidence in you as a good and gracious God, as a God who hears and answers prayers.
So, from the bottom of my heart dear Father God, I thank you.
