The Shepherd of Micah: He Hears Our Prayers!
Micah 7:7, 14-20

In unsettling times as these, we are wise to follow Micah’s example and cry out to God that he might deliver us. In this text we see aspects of prayer which we would do well to emulate.
I. When misery comes our way, we would be wise to Persevere in prayer as Micah did.
II. When misery comes our way, we would be wise to follow the Pattern of prayer which Micah demonstrates for us.
III. When misery comes our way, we would be wise to give heed to the Persuasive Case for prayer which Micah makes for us.
