This morning we begin a series of sermons on prayer. Out Catechism in Lord’s Day 45 calls prayer “the chief part of thankfulness.” It is fitting that in our first sermon on prayer we consider “The God Who hears Prayer” as God is revealed in Psalm 65. That God hears prayer declares to us many things about God. First, that He is a living and personal God. Second, that He is a merciful God. Third, that He knows all things, hears all the cries we utter, and is ready to answer us in our need. Can you think of the next twenty or hundred more truths of God that are revealed in His being “the God Who hears prayer”? So many more reasons, these, that praise, the praise of those whose prayers are answered, waits for God in Zion!
