Catechism 39

With what attitude should we pray?
With love, perseverance, and gratefulness; in humble submission to God’s will, knowing that, for the sake of Christ, he always hears our prayers.
(New City Catechism)

And He does,
     always:
no unjust judge, unmindful of man,
no stony indifference
     when bread is required,
no doors shut at evening,
     no scorpions for fish,
but fatherly    constant
          extravagant
                   care.
Approach now with confidence:
       His throne beckons near.

One thought on “Catechism 39

  1. and Hebrews 7:25 should be a great source of consolation to us. To have the King of kings and Lord of lords always making intercession for us.
