Scripture of the Day

For what great nation is there that has a god near to it as the Lord our God is [to us] whenever we call to Him? And what great nation has righteous statutes and ordinances like this entire law I set before you today?
Deuteronomy 4:7-8 HCSB

We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.
2 Corinthians 1:8-11

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Ephesians 6:18 NIV

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with them, and they with me.
Revelation 3:20 NIV

God not only hears the prayers of believers when we pray according to his will (1 John 5:11), but we are in his favor. He wants to spend time with us as a Father. Even when we are in despair, and don’t trust him as we should, he is with us and is gracious towards us in one way or another, eventually presenting us with him in glory (Colossians 3:4).
