Are Your Prayers Heard?
November 14, 2012

Open Ears Equals Open Doors
Salt & Light Volume V, Issue 45 by D. Scott Prindle

"Whoever shuts their ears to the cry of the poor will also cry out and not be answered." (Proverbs 21:13)

My wife Laurie and I were traveling to a pastor's conference in Montana. We had just finished a wonderful lunch together at Johnny Carino's.

Too much food for Laurie. To be honest, our grateful hearts also felt the presence of other's lack. Our prayer went something like this; "Father help us to find ways to help the poor and needy."

Within minutes God answered our prayer. Leaving our destination with the leftover lunch in tow, a woman was standing at the next stop sign "begging" for money.

"Are you hungry?", we asked through our rolled down window. She gratefully accepted what we had left.

We share this not because we want to impress you with our benevolence. Quite the opposite... we have a long way to go.

The main point is that God will always answer your prayers to help the unfortunate, but He does not answer your prayers if you do not hear the cry of the needy in the world.

Your attitude toward those who are poor is what will keep you from letting business success harden your heart.

It will also open heaven's doors on your behalf when it's your turn to cry out for help.
