Not in Vain

I was reminded this week that my prayers are not in vain. It was in a moment of incredible sadness, when I was certain God had forgotten all the tears I have cried for souls, that God came. In a random statement from a friend, God spoke. He said He was storing my tears and my prayers in golden bowls.
Others do not see or hear the prayers I pray or the tears I weep for them. They do not know the prayers YOU pray or the tears YOU weep for the ones you love. But God does! God hears your prayers and stores them in golden bowls. And, at the right moment, He will pour out the contents of your prayers into the hearts of those for whom you pray. Your prayers and tears will be turned into mercy and grace. And a fragrant offering will be lifted up to the heavens. So hear the words of Brandon Heath as if God were speaking into your life today:
This one goes out to the world changer
Shining your light in the face of danger
Oh, tell us what you know
You’re a saint, you’re a son, you’re a promise keeper
Bottom of the well, still digging down deeper
Oh, how far you gonna goChasing down hope
Moving on dreams
Taking that path
Maybe it’ll lead you home
Maybe it won’tNobody knows why your heart is broken
Nobody cries while your prayers are going up
But Love does
Nobody walks on the road you’re paving
Nobody sees all the souls you’re saving
Oh, but Love does
Love does
Love doesThis is for the one on the front line fighting
Ringing that bell over everybody
Oh, tell us what you know
Knocking down doors in the midnight alley
Looking for a life in a desert valley
Oh, how far you gonna goChasing down hope
Moving on dreams
Taking that path
Maybe it’ll lead you home
Maybe it don’t

You are a renegade
You’re an outlaw of Love’s crusade
And they don’t know who you are
They don’t know
They don’t know
But Love does
I’m telling you, Love does

Somebody knows
Somebody cries
Somebody feels
Love does
Somebody walks
Somebody sees
Somebody knows
Love does
