Today’s Prayer

I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. —Psalm 116:1,2 (NIV)

Dear Jesus, I love you and I need you in my life.  You are always near, just waiting to hear my voice calling out to you.  Hear me then as I lay my problems out before you, with sorrow for ever having offended you.  Help me to hear you as you answer me and to accept your answer as the best thing for me.  I rejoice in your presence all the days of my life, knowing how good you are to me in hearing and answering my prayers.  Thank you, Jesus, for you are my rock, my fortress, and the assurance of my salvation..  Amen.
