because he bends down to listen, i will pray as long as i have breath

Hello everyone, hope you all are having a good day!! Here is my reflection for today!!

psalm 56:8 says “tears are prayers too. they travel to god when we can’t speak”

psalm 116:2 says “because he bends down to listen, i will pray as long as i have breath”

These two verses caught my attention, it made me think of the times when I was upset and just questioning god, why do I have to feel this way, why do I overthink things etc. After reading these verses it made me realise that we don’t always have to say our prayers out loud, even when we say in our heart or even when we can’t find the right words to say, God understands us, he understands what we are feeling, he knows what we want to say to him. Prayers come in many form, for example, saying a prayer as you dwell on one word like strength/peace.

The second verse reminded me that He will always be with us when we need. My faith isn’t very strong I would say but after reading this verse, it gave me assurance that even when I feel like my faith isn’t strong, I know that God will always be there, waiting for me to come to Him, we may think that sometimes He doesn’t answer our prayers and doubt Him, but we must know that God always has a better plan in store for us, we must trust His plan.

Today’s takeaway is:

– God understands our prayers even when we can’t find the words to say them
– As long as we long for Him, He will always be there for us

Hope you all have a blessed day ahead!!
