Some days are just extremely tough! People we care about are hurting. It seems all of our plans are crashing. Our prayers seem to bounce off the ceiling and fall. That is if they seem to get off the ground at all. We cry out to God? We need relief! We need hope! We need the Father to respond.
Psalm 143:1 (NIV)
1 O LORD, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief.
Jeremiah 29:12-13 (NIV)
12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
