An offering from Eunice: The Lord accepts my prayer…

The Lord has heard my supplication; the Lord accepts my prayer. Psalm 6:6  NRSV
Eunice Sun for 3.2.15blog post
Without confidence that the “Lord accepts my prayer, I could practice neither intercessory prayer nor meditation.”  My meditation time is often filled with more distractions than mental silence, so I remind myself that God does not judge my prayer and finds my effort pleasing. When I’ve felt sick at heart with grief, betrayal or worry, I’ve wondered, as did the psalmist, just how long God would take to answer me, or if God’s answer was “no.”  But I’ve been blessed with the confidence that God did hear me.  Long ago I lost track of a large framed poster, but not its message, a quote scratched into a wall in Auschwitz: “I believe in the sun even when it is not shining.  I believe in love when I feel it not.  And I believe in God even when He is silent.”
