Re:Verse passage – 2 Chronicles 6:12-42 (day five)
“Now, O my God, I pray, let Your eyes be open and Your ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.”6:40.
The opportunity to communicate with each other has changed dramatically over the last couple of decades, thanks in large part to technology. Cell phones, FaceTime, Instant Messages all make it easier these for communication to happen. Yet, there are still moments when communication becomes hindered and/or impossible. Loss of signal, dead battery, cell phone turned off, lost, or left behind.
One of the great hopes and pleas in Solomon’s prayer is that God would hear his prayer and the prayers of the people (notice it’s both Israel and foreigners- but that’s another blog).
God’s capacity to hear us never fails. No lost signals, no dead batteries, always listening.
Does that bring you joy? Does that give you hope? Does that cause you to want to share your heart and thoughts with Him?
