"He will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when He shall hear it, He will answer thee."
- Isaiah 30:19
 
In the text the LORD told stubborn, unrepentant Israel that He was waiting to be gracious to them. He promised that the moment He heard their cry He would be merciful and answer them. 
 
One might think that many invitations to pray and many promises to hear should not be necessary. Our own and our neighbor's need should be enough to move us to pray diligently and earnestly.

But are we not slothful in prayer? And when we do pray, is it with becoming confidence? Our heavenly Father knows the wiles of the devil and the treachery of our own heart. And so He gives us much encouragement to come before Him in prayer, especially to call upon Him in the day of trouble. God pledges Himself to be gracious unto us when we cry.
 
Christian friends, are you in need of forgiveness? God is waiting for you to receive it. If you'll repent and come boldly to Him without delay. He won't keep you waiting. At the sound of your voice, He'll be very gracious to you. In His own day and way He will show us that he has heard our cry.
 
      If you've rebelled and turned away
      From what you know is true,
      Turn back to God--He will forgive;
      His pardon waits for you.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Forgiveness is free, but we must accept it.
