Is That Music That I Hear?
Prayer as a Melody in the Ear of the Lord
Synopsis: Have you ever wondered how our prayers must sound to God? Individually we make up only one part of what must be one of many notes when arranged together in the ear of God they must make a very pleasing sound. I imagine it might sound like music. Think about it. Prayer heard in the ear of God as music from the soul a melody of the heart not the mouth.
I you take any of our hymns apart and listen to only one note at a time it is difficult imagine what it would sound like when all the notes are played together. Sometimes we get so caught up in the notes we are playing that we forget that prayer is never a solo performance. We never pray alone. Other believers join in the chorus and the Holy Spirit joins us as well (Romans 8:18-30).
Come join the chorus of prayer. Play your notes faithfully because it is part of the grand melody heard in the ear of God the Father as the Son stands to join us and the Spirit hums in harmony with our prayer and the will of God the Father.
Scripture Text (NLT): 1 Kings 19; Romans 8:18-30
