The One Who Hears

Mary and Martha sent someone to tell Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.”  John 11:3

The phrase the friend of Lazarus used is worth noting.  When he told Jesus of the illness he said, “Lord, the one you love is sick.”  He doesn’t base his appeal on the imperfect love of the one in need, but on the perfect love of the Savior…
The power of the prayer, in other words, does not depend on the one who makes the prayer, but on the one who hears the prayer.
