So close...

You know what I long for Lord;
you hear my every sigh.
Psalms 38:9

A sigh isn’t a prayer – it hasn’t even enough energy to be a plea -
it is an honest ragged exhale of emotion;
frustration, desire, sorrow, exhaustion.
There are many verses that say that the Almighty God
of the Universe hears my every prayer but this comforts
me in that my God is so attuned to me that he hears my
unspoken longings and catches every sigh.
