He bends down

Thank you Lord that you hear my prayers,
that you bend down to listen
to me.
Thank you for listening closely,
even though my words be faintly whispered.
Thank you for knowing my hearts cry,
the silent pleadings I dare not speak.
I love the Lord becaue he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy.  Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!  Psalm 116:1-2




  1. Isn't amazing how He listens to our prayers? I was just thinking this morning how whiny and needy I can be in my prayer life. . .how I often pray over and over for the same things, and there He is. . .listening. Beautiful, beauiful picture.

  2. This was so wonderful, Mindy! I am so thankful I came on my blog this morning so that I could read your post. May you have a blessed day!

  3. Oh Mindy--I have NEVER thought of that in this way before: He bends down! Shows such effort and care, doesn't it? What a personal God we have--tender to each of us individually. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hi Mindy! This Photo is beautiful...it could be sun-up or sun-down. It really shows me that God shines in all his creation. And by that, I mean you too! I am so thankful that God hears me, even when I am so tired and sad, and my voice is quiet.

    Bless you today, my friend!

  5. I have never noticed that wonderful phrase in this psalm before! What a privilege and blessing to bring our prayers to God Almighty!
