The One who Hears

 Seated beside me
My sweet Amber girl
Head bowed
Eyes closed
Earnestness creased her brow
Hands folded
Clasped close to her breast
To the one who hears

"This is the confidence we have in approaching God:  that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.  And if we know that he hears us--whatever we ask--we know that we have what we asked of him."
(I John 5:14,15)

I think back
give thanks
Answered prayer
long ago
uttered from her lips
"Dear Jesus, pease to stay here porever and ever.  Amen."

He heard.

A father to the fatherless,
A defender of widows,
is God in his holy dwelling.
God sets the lonely in families..."
Psalm 68:5,6

He brought our girl home.

May she always remember
and continue to pray
to the one who hears.

It's been almost six years now
since Amber's story unfolded.
