He Attends our Prayer

But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me (Ps. 66. 19, 20).

God does not turn the prayer away of those who pray according to His will. We have the promise of having the mind of Christ. Our thoughts will be as His very own thoughts as we seek His face, behold and draw nigh unto Him. Our affections will be as the affections of Christ and thus, we will pray for those things He would pray for.

The Bible tells us the Holy Spirit maketh intercession for us in groanings which cannot be uttered. We are further told Jesus ever liveth to make intercession for us. So as we attempt to draw close to God, He is perfecting our prayer by the Holy Spirit, interceding for us and transfiguring us into His likeness and glory.

Thus, He attends to our prayer in mercy. He will not turn our prayer away for we have become unified with Him.
