The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth.
He fulfills the desire of those who fear Him; He also hears their cry and saves them.
OBSERVATION: What a blessing it is to serve and pray to a God who is always there!
PRAYER: Thank you, Father, for the amazing blessing of being able to talk to You at any time with the confidence that You are near, You care, and You are willing and able to answer our petitions. We especially thank You for the mediation of Jesus, our High Priest, who speaks on our behalf when we approach Your throne; and for the Holy Spirit, who intercedes for us when we do not even know what we ought to pray for.
