EVEN   THE   PRAYERS   THAT   NEVER   ESCAPE   OUR   LIPS


1 Samuel 1:13:  Hannah was praying silently; her lips were moving, but she made no sound.


     Like reading, prayer can be silent. Hannah, who longed  for a child of her own, visited the temple and "spoke in her heart" as she prayed. Her lips were moving, but "her voice was not heard" (1 Samuel 1:13).

     Eli the priest saw but misunderstood what was happening. She explained, "I have poured out my soul before the Lord" (1 Samuel 1:15). God heard Hannah's silent prayer request and gave her a son. "So it was that she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, and explained, "I asked the Lord for him" (1 Samuel 1:20).


Jeremiah 17:10:  I, the Lord, search the minds and test the hearts of people.

                      I treat each of them according to the way they live, according to what they do."


     Since God searches our hearts and minds, He sees and hears every prayer-even the ones that never escape our lips. His all-knowing nature makes it possible for us to pray with full confidence that He will hear and answer. "Do not be like them. Your Father already knows what you need before you ask him" (Matthew 6:8).  "Your Father in heaven knows that you need all these things" (Matthew 6:32).


     Because of this, we can - continually praise God, even when no one else can hear us.

                                    - ask Him for help, even when no one else can hear us.

                                    - thank Him for blessings, even when no one else can hear us.


My time of prayer calls me from a world of care.

My time of prayer bids me make all my wants and wishes known to my Father in heaven.


God fills our heart  with peace when we pour out our heart to Him.
