God Will Not Despise Our Prayers

Many people are not saved and are currently living a lifestyle of sin, but later on in their lives will turn to the Lord. God knows who these people are. You may say that you were one of these people for many years of your life, as was I, until God took hold of me. The moment I broke down and let God tug upon my heart is when I saw myself as being tarnished in my sins. I was very wretched in God’s sight. My sins were bigger than anyone else’s and I wondered if the Lord would ever forgive a person like me. My soul was torn and I had nowhere to turn to but Jesus. In all my confessions, He heard my cries and cleansed me through His blood. I was far gone, but in my prayers to God, I found freedom from sin, and now the Holy Spirit is ever with me. David wrote about this and said, “so the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory. When the Lord shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory. He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.” (Psalm 102:15-17)

David’s words have continued from generation to generation. The book of Psalms is his greatest achievement. He was a singer, songwriter, musician, and a true believer in God. The way he could play the harp was out of this world amazing, along with his devotion to God. You would have never thought this based on what happened with Bathsheba and her husband. However, God heard his cries and had compassion for his soul. God took David and myself, who were prisoners to the lusts of our flesh, and loosed us from the grips of Satan. David wrote, “this shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord. For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth; To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death.” (Psalm 102:18-20) If you are sorrowful for your sins, then confess them. God will hear your prayers. His mercy is for you. God’s grace is sufficient to forgive us of all our sins. Amen.

Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people will turn to You while in their sins. So many people live a life of sin and forget the importance of coming to You for salvation. Thankfully, You continue to pull at our heartstrings while steering people to You. Truly, You never give up on us, God. We’ve been so evil, while lifting up the things of this world above You. We have committed adultery in our lusts for the opposite and same sex. God, this generation is not much different than that of Sodom. Thankfully, we have a generation where the gospel is being preached in all corners of the earth. Revivals are being set in motion by way of the Holy Spirit. People have come from all around the nation to Asbury to experience what it means to be in Your presence. Thank You for showing Yourself in so many ways. I love how the Jesus movement started in the 60s and has continued till today. You have set a fire in our souls that cannot be contained. Have mercy upon me, for my sins. I am grateful for Your grace and forgiveness. I love You, Lord. Amen.

  1. It’s not typically the most respectable whom God uses for his kingdom. Instead, he seems to search out the downtrodden and those whose lives are in shambles. It’s those who know how unworthy they are who can be the most effective. They love much because they’ve been forgiven much.
