The eyes of the Lord are over the righteous and His ears are open unto their prayers

“For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.” (1 Peter 3:12)

It is not how long we spend on our knees; nor how eloquently presented our prayer are before God’s throne of mercy; nor how long they may be; nor how sweet they may sound to the ears; nor how argumentative we are; nor how meticulous we are in presenting our prayers before God that moves God. No!

God looks at the heart! (1 Samuel 16:7)

Going to church, keeping vigils, and being actively involved in church activities are all good, but if you are not fervent, devoted, diligent, sincere and honest in your prayer life, you are missing out a lot.

God is not interested in numbers, eloquence, and length of time but a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite hear He will not despise (Psalm 51:17)

Pray and offer yourself to God in obedience.

Look upon God in prayers at all times, not just as the last resort, or because you have no other place or deity or human being to turn to.

Let prayer be the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.

Get hold of God through honest fervent prayers!

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

  1. Thank You Bummyla; I believe being sincere is the key to all aspects of life. If you are not sincere, then what is the point. Words can be meaningless. Being from the heart is the key. People can sense if you are sincere or not. The heart knows the difference. The mind doesn’t. You are right; obedience is the key also. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Continue the good word of hope and peace. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with the hope by the power of the Holy spirit. (Rom. 15:13) Ricklee
