Psalm 84:8–9 (NLT) — 8 O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies, hear my prayer. Listen, O God of Jacob. 9 O God, look with favor upon the king, our shield! Show favor to the one you have anointed.

I had the honor, privilege and pleasure of performing the wedding ceremony of my son and his wife to be Sarah Jean. For those of you that were at that ceremony you observed as I did the look of love in Jeremy’s eyes as he stood and face Sarah to make his vows to her. It was a delight for me to embrace her as if she was my own daughter.

After seeing that look of love in my son’s eyes I have found myself gladly listening and saying yes, when I can, to the requests that Sarah has of me.

Do you not suppose it is the same with Father God. We are the bride of his Son, the bride of Christ! The Father has seen how Jesus has looked at us with deep affectionate love. The Father has seen all that Jesus went through to claim us as His bride. As I listen to Sarah Jean will not the Father listen to us as we make our requests known to him?  Will he not delight in giving his best to his Son’s bride? Of course He will! Because of Jesus’ love for us we can expect that the Father will gladly hear us as we pray.
