Do you understand that when a righteous man calls out to God, He truly hears? I want to stress that it is not some disconnected and cold conversation either. He is a loving Father – He hears and He responds. Do you call out to Him? I mean really, do you? I pray that your talking to Him is not limited to silent, head bowed and eyes closed rituals. Today, get to know your Creator! Know Him intimately – He is listening.
