Prayer the Lord Hears

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 1 John 5:15

Crafted for several challenges including the Christian Paper Crafts Bible Verse Thursday Challenge #116" "Your challenge is to make a project that reflects quietness, and/or peacefulness that time alone in prayer with God gives you. "

Quietness portrayed by a lone bird, sitting on a limb as the snow softly falls, expectantly waiting. . .as should we who are the Lord's. He promises to hear and answer the prayers of His people and we are to watch expectantly, continually giving thanks, knowing that He will answer, not always in the way we expect but ALWAYS in the way that is best for our eternal good and His glory!

This is also entered into the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge 68 to use the phrase or a word from the phrase as inspiration: "You're a grand old flag, you're a high flying flag."
You can use a  flag, something flying, something high or grand.....
the bird flies and our prayers are lifted to heaven.
