Psalm 17:6 “I am praying to You because I know You will answer, O God, bend down and listen as I pray.”
A person who knows he’s in a covenant relationship with God prays knowing that He hears. You pray when you need answers from Him, and you pray because you just want to stay connected. You talk and you listen, just as you would with any person you are in a relationship with.
When a little child talks to his papa, papa bends down to listen because he loves his child, because he wants to feel close and maybe even kiss his cheeks. Your heavenly Papa wants to do the same. He wants to feel you close to Him, He wants to kiss you and pour His love on you. Close your eyes and whisper a prayer, then listen as He speaks to your heart. He’s waiting.
“Here I am, Abba, I lay myself before You. Bend down and listen as I pray, let me hear You speak, let me feel You close. Amen.”
