Showing posts with the label seek in prayer

God sees needs before we seek

When the poor and needy seek water,
and no water can be found,

and thirst clings like silence to the tongue,
I the LORD will response.

I the God of Israel will not forsake My people.

I will cause rivers to run on barren heights
and fountains to flow from low plains.

I will hand water to the wilderness
and springs of water to dry land.

I will bring forth cedar, acacia, myrtle,
and olive trees, and in the desert,

I will set cypress, plane trees, and pines,
so all may see and know,
consider and find
the hand of the LORD.

The Holy One of Israel

(the Creator God)
will still create.
