Hear me, Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.
We are all poor and needy – desperately needing the Lord Jesus. This is where confession begins, and where our relationship with God flourishes. Remember always that we need Jesus, and we are enabled to love Him only because He first loved us. We were mired in our transgressions and trapped in the cost of our sin. With no way to free ourselves, He offered His sinless life to break the power sin held over us. Resurrected with Him to our loving Father in Heaven, we have been set free to love Him, to know Him, to delight in relationship with Him. God is able to hear your prayers, and He is able to reach you and love you through anything.
