The Lord, the God of Israel, says: “Because you prayed to Me…” (Isaiah 37:21a)
Our prayers make a difference.
That’s not to claim we always get what we want. But when we seek God as we pray, we step toward lining up with Him. Our prayers make a difference, not just in the context but in the relationship.
We don’t have to apologetically back into prayer. “I’m so sorry to bother you, God. This is such a little thing. I know you’ve heard it before.” Oh, He still listens to us regardless of how we approach Him. Starting somewhere is better than not starting at all. Approaching Him in any way is better than not approaching Him at all.
But we can be bold. We can declare who He is. We can set aside our insecurities, because the One we’re to talking to is our security.
And He says, “Because you prayed to Me…”
