The above lyrics are from the chorus of the 1979 song called "Answering Machine" by Rupert Holmes. When I heard the song recently, it reminded me of our frequent perception of God's response to us during prayer. When we look at the current plight of our cities, our nation, and our world, how can God possibly be listening to us? Was our prayer cut off because our thirty seconds ran out? Did God try to get back to us and OUR answering machines were on?
Lord God, thank you for always being available to hear my prayer. May I always be available to receive Your call to me. Amen.
