The Lord Hears

 "The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
And His ears are open to their cry.
 The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit." Psalm 34:15-18

"But I am poor and sorrowful;
Let Your salvation, O God, set me up on high.
 I will praise the name of God with a song,
And will magnify Him with thanksgiving.
 This also shall please the Lord better than an ox or bull,
Which has horns and hooves.
 The humble shall see this and be glad;
And you who seek God, your hearts shall live.
 For the Lord hears the poor,
And does not despise His prisoners." Psalm 69:29-33

 "The Lord is far from the wicked,
But He hears the prayer of the righteous." Proverbs 15:29

May we come into His presence, seeking Him and knowing that He hears our cries and prayers. May we confess any sin in our lives to Jesus and ask for His forgiveness. No matter what you are going through, come to the Lord, He hears.
