Eyes on God

EyesOnGod

Hear me, Lord, and answer me,
    for I am poor and needy.
Guard my life, for I am faithful to you;
    save your servant who trusts in you.
You are my God; have mercy on me, Lord,
    for I call to you all day long.
Bring joy to your servant, Lord,
    for I put my trust in you.

You, Lord, are forgiving and good,
    abounding in love to all who call to you.
Hear my prayer, Lord;
    listen to my cry for mercy.
When I am in distress, I call to you,
    because you answer me.

—Psalm 86:1-7

About Anna Popescu

I live in northern Arizona with my husband, Rick. I am blessed to say that Rick and I are at the bottom corners of a triangle where Jesus sits at the top corner. My children, Kathy & Alan, live in the Phoenix area and make this mom's heart thankful they have grown to be such wonderful and caring adults. Alan married in 2010, so I am also blessed with Denise as a special daughter-in-love. The Lord took my Mom home in 2007, and I miss her. My Dad and two sisters live in Florida while my two other sisters live in the Northeast. God has also blessed me and Rick with a local family of very close-knit friends. I love to write when I am able, but on the days when I am struggling with health issues and can't manage much of anything, I can at least crochet. These days I mainly crochet lapghans of various colors and sizes for area rehab centers and nursing homes.

  1. Nice prayer, Anna. I like the part where you call upon God because He answers you.

  2. A very heartfelt prayer, sure God does answer. Have a super blessed weekend Anna!
    Love

  3. What a joy and privilege to approach the God of the universe and not only approach Him, but to know He is glad I came!!

  4. This is one of the most beautiful prayers in the bible. I do a lot of volunteer work with homeless families. And, one of the things we ask of our church volunteers is not to witness by word, only by deed. We actually need not make that requirement, as our people in need are witnessing by their faith to those helping them. What we have found is the impoverished among us sometimes only have their faith. This goes back to Dr. Cornel West and Tavis Smiley book, “The Rich and the Rest of Us.” There ae some who believe those in poverty are there because they are less virtuous. What they dispel in their book and what we have seen is that is not true. Poverty is the lack of money, period. Thanks for the great prayer and letting me wax on, BTG

  5. You are welcome Anna. If you don’t have time to read the book, I wrote two posts last October about it – the first one was on misconceptions about poverty and the second one was on their suggestions. Would love your thoughts. Also, the post that gets the most attention is called “Les Miserables and Social Injustice.” I wrote that shortly after the movie aired, so around January or February of this year. Take care, BTG

  6. Beautiful, Anna. I love that He hears us whenEVER we call on Him!
