“Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me; O LORD, make haste to help me!”
God loves to answer the prayers of His people. Many times in the Bible, He tells us to pray to Him, to ask Him for things and to call out to Him. He even tells us that there are some things that we do not have simply because we have not asked Him for them.
Folks, God wants us to pray to Him because He enjoys helping us. He cares for us deeply and knows that our lives are full of hard things. We get sad or hurt or sick or just plain confused about what to do next. Praying for help is good for us because it causes us to slow down and pay attention to God.
God also enjoys helping us because it makes His power obvious to other people. When other people see what God can do, they may also slow down and pay attention to Him. Remember our friends and family may be interested to know more about our faith when they see us following God.
