“The LORD has heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.” Psalm 6:9
“The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You…. For the needy shall not always be forgotten.” Psalm 9:9-10, 18
Whoever would receive comfort from these words must first be sensible of his poverty and misery, confessing his sins, and feeling nothing in himself but helplessness and unworthiness. He must come with all his poverty to a rich Savior and daily entreat His mercy, carefully remembering that the Lord has promised to supply all our needs, however great our poverty and misery may be. Therefore beware of unbelief, and do not suspect the Lord’s kindness — but seek to Him and hope in Him and expect all good things from Him — assuring yourself that neither your hope, nor your prayer, nor a single sigh will be lost.
The Lord supplies all my needs and leaves me nothing to be desired but Himself. O my God, grant me faith, that I may say, “The Lord hears my supplication; the Lord receives my prayer. Praised be God, who has not rejected my prayer nor turned away His goodness from me! Blessed be God, who has not forgotten my needy soul or suffered my expectation to fail — but has hitherto supplied all my needs, and still stands engaged to do so!”
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
