Dearly Beloved, I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and Ever Unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The Blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Psalms 102:17, “ He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.” From the above passage we see that the Lord will regard the prayer of the destitute, delivers the needy when he calls, and does not despise their prayer. We are dying creatures, but God is an everlasting God. When we consider our own darkness and deadness, and the many defects in our prayers, we have reason to fear that our prayer will not be heard in heaven; but we are assured because we have an Advocate to intercede with the Father, the Lord Jesus; and He brings us into the glorious liberty of His children, that we may bless and praise His name. Dearly Beloved, He will regard the prayer of the destitute. When one cries out for help, the Lord hears them and answers them too. God supports gives protection and defends the “poor. He considers the poor in their afflicted state. The prayers of these are regarded and looked to, by the Lord; his eyes are upon them and His ears are open to these praying ones, who cry out to Him for help. He does not reject their prayers, with contempt and abhorrence; instead He will receive it with pleasure, and return an answer to it; the prayer of these poor destitute ones is delightful to Him. The Bible says, “For the sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord, But the prayer of the upright is His delight. ” The Bible records of how an enslaved woman named Hagar meets the Angel of the Lord as she was wandering through a desert feeling hopeless. God himself appeared in angelic form—provides the hope and help that Hagar needs both the times. Hagar encounters the Angel of the Lord twice: once when Hagar runs away from Abraham and Sarah’s household because of Sarah’s cruel mistreatment of her, sparked by jealousy over the fact that Hagar had been able to conceive a child with Abraham but Sarah hadn’t. Hagar, was an Egyptian slave to Abraham with whom she had a son, Ishmael. Abraham’s wife became jealous and asked her husband to banish them to the desert. Sent away with only small rations of food and water, Hagar and Ishmael were miraculously saved from dying of thirst by an angel. God heard the cry of Hagar a destitute in the wilderness crying for water. He immediately responds to her cry and sends an angel to quench the thirst of her dying son. My dear children of God who are reading this message, will not God hear your prayer? God who heard the cry of Hagar, will He not hear your cry? Will He not listen to your prayer? He will because He is a God who hears the prayer of the destitute and does not despise their prayer. God says, “Call upon Me in the day of trouble. I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me. God Bless you. Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, we thank You because You hear the prayer of the destitute. And You never despise their prayer. We thank You for hearing the cry of Hagar and sending an angel to quench the thirst of her son. Do hear our cry also and answer our prayers when we go through affliction like Hagar so that we too will glorify your name. In Jesus Name We Pray. Amen.
