The Lord knows when to heed our call. We only need to cry out and believe that He is listening - Daily Bible Reflections January 5,2014

Epiphany Sunday
 
GOD LISTENS
 
For he will deliver the needy when he cries for help, the afflicted also, and him who has no helper. – Psalm 72:12
 
A year ago, Rita’s son, Louie, was involved in a vehicular accident. Because of that accident, he was in the hospital for six months, unable to speak, see or even sit down. The family had no money for all the medical expenses and could only rely on the charity of family, friends and some unknown donors.
       Still, she held on to her faith. Every morning, her prayer would be, “I know You will rescue my son and have pity on him. He will stand up from his bed and be the same normal boy.”
       But after a year of saying the same prayer, her faith began to wane. She cried out to God, “Lord, I offered to You my son. But I have received no answer from You.”
       One day, the parish priest had a visitor, a rich man who was looking for donees. The priest took the rich man to Louie, who was still bedridden but had been brought home because they had no more money. The man assured Louie of his financialassistance.
       After three months, and a number of operations that he needed, Louie left the hospital on his way to full recovery. Rita uttered a prayer, “Lord, thank You for saving my son.” Chelle S. Crisanto (ellehcmaria@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: The Lord knows when to heed our call. We only need to cry out and believe that He is listening.
 
I may be weak, but because You are strong, I will be strong. Hear my prayer, Lord. Come and bless me.
 
St. John Neumann, bishop, pray for us.
