He will respond to the prayer of the destitute; he will not despise their plea. (Psalm 102:17)
2 key words in the above promise are "will respond" and "not despise".
Often we despair regarding lost oppurtunities. It could have worked out but it didn't. Perhaps it was our fault. So does there remain any hope?
Prayer is a weapon that can be used to sort out umpteen problems that surface in our lives because of personal carelessness or unwise decisions.
Yes, prayer brings renewed hope because as the above promise says, "God does not despise" and "he will respond" if we come back to him asking for forgiveness and renewal.
The Bible says,
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18)
God can and will work out better things for us if we humble ourselves, confess our sins and unrighteousness and ask for his help in turning our failures into success.
He is Almighty and can turn things around in a moment.
Are you brokenhearted? Are you crushed in your spirit?
Jesus will not despise your prayers but instead will repond favorably to your pleas. Trust in him. He is your Savior. He loves you.
God bless you.
