Prayers & tears

Pastor Alistair Begg has sent out a wonderful devotional thought on this verse in his “Truth For Life” email. I think he writes with the same passion and illustration of Charles Spurgeon….

Behold, he is praying — Acts 9:11

Prayers are instantly noticed in heaven. The moment Saul began to pray, the Lord heard him. Here is comfort for the distressed but praying soul. When our hearts are broken and we bow in prayer, we are often only able to employ the language of sighs and tears; still our groaning has made all the harps of heaven thrill with music.

That tear has been caught by God and treasured in the receptacle of heaven. “Put my tears in your bottle” (Psalm 56:8), implies that they are caught as they flow. The petitioner, whose fears prevent his words, will be well understood by the Most High. He may only look up with misty eye; but “prayer is the falling of a tear.”
