I cry out to the LORD; I pray to the LORD for mercy.
PSALM 142:1

You can talk to God because God listens. Your voice matters in heaven. He takes you very seriously. When you enter his presence, he turns to you to hear your voice. No need to fear that you will be ignored. Even if you stammer or stumble, even if what you have to say impresses no one, it impresses God, and he listens.

He listens to the painful plea of the elderly in the rest home.

He listens to the gruff confession of the death-row inmate.

When the alcoholic begs for mercy,

when the spouse seeks guidance,

when the businessman steps off the street into the chapel,

God listens. Intently. Carefully.
