If I had cherished iniquity in my heart,
the Lord would not have listened.
But truly God has listened;
he has attended to the voice of my prayer.
Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer
or removed his steadfast love from me!
God, today we give thanks that you are far more ready to receive our prayers than we are to offer them. Thank you for your faithfulness. In all the areas of our lives where we feel unable to pray, send us your Holy Spirit so that we might have an intersessor to give voice to our struggles and a bridge to reconnect with your mercy and grace. Amen.
