Ellul: God always present

Sunday, May 13, 2018
O you who hear prayer,
    to you all men will come.
    —Psalm 65:2 (NIV)
    God is always present, always available. At whatever moment in which one turns to him the prayer is received, is heard, is authenticated, for it is God who gives our prayer its value and its character, not our interior dispositions, not our fervor, not our lucidity. The prayer which is pronounced for God and accepted by him becomes, by that very fact, a true prayer.
    ... Jacques Ellul (1912-1994), Prayer and Modern Man, New York: The Seabury Press, 1973, p. 17 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 65:2; 46:1; 91:1-2; Rom. 8:26-27
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are closer to me than breath.
