This evening’s Bible study concludes a lengthy series on prayer. We have recently focused on the Lord’s Prayer.
Looking at 1 Chronicles 29:11 we see that God is eternally God. Kingdom, power, and glory belong to God eternally. He is unchanging, and thus able to hear and answer your prayer. Do not neglect to praise God for who he is. God can and will hear you, for he is your God in Jesus Christ. The kingdom, power, and glory are his forever and ever. Amen.
“This clause . . . teach[es] us, that our prayers, which are here dictated to us, are founded on God alone, that we may not rely on our own merits.” (John Calvin, Commentary on the Gospels).
