Does your mouth ramble on with no thought of who is listening? Are you one who rants, complains and whines, presuming that no one is paying any attention? Think again.
I love the Lord because he hears my prayers and answers them because he bends down and listens, I will pray as long as I breathe!
Death stared me in the face—I was frightened and sad. Then I cried, “Lord, save me!” How kind he is! How good he is! So merciful, this God of ours!
The Lord protects the simple and the childlike; I was facing death, and then he saved me. Now I can relax. For the Lord has done this wonderful miracle for me. He has saved me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. I shall live! Yes, in his presence—here on earth! (Psalm 116:1-2, TLB)
Yes, the Lord hears the good man when he calls to him for help and saves him out of all his troubles. (Psalm 34:17, TLB)
Oh yes, God hears us… he hears us. What are we saying while he listens?
Prayer – Lord, guard our mouths lest we say anything offensive in your presence. Amen
