the REmissionary

Answered Prayers

Did you ever wonder if your prayers are heard?  I have.   This morning’s reading in Luke 1:13-17 tells me that the LORD does indeed hear and answer prayers.  Zacharias and Elizabeth had given up on having children, even though they still prayed for a child.  This part really jumped out at me:

13 “But the angel said to him, ‘Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard….”

And then, the promise!

15-17 “For he shall be great in the sight of the LORD…he will turn many of the children of Israel to the LORD their God…to make ready a people prepared for the LORD.”

Wow.

That is what I would love to hear from the LORD, that I would be used to turn someone to Him.  What a privilege!! My prayer today is that if anyone is reading this (besides myself), that the LORD would make Himself manifest to you, and that He would draw you to Himself this day.  And encourage you.  And bless you.  And make His face to shine upon you.
