I read the following line in my Disciple readings last week (Isaiah 65:24):

Before they call I will answer, while they are yet speaking I will hear.

And then today in Matthew (6:7-8):
‘When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words. 8Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

Think of relationship you are in, where you have known the person for a very long time. Can't you almost predict what the other person will say before he/she says it? That is what these verses remind me of.

God loves us with a grace so strong that it chances us. It is a love that knows what we need before we can articulate it. And it is a relationship so close that we can predict each others words and needs before they are expressed.

God loves us.
