David is an example of a man devoted to the Lord that experienced numerous times of trouble. In the midst of men lying about him, David chose to go to the Lord in prayer seeking God’s direction. Psalm 17:1a, “Here me, Lord, my plea is just; listen to my cry.” He knew God was mighty and powerful. Psalm 44:4, “you are my King and my God, who decrees victorious for Jacob.” God listens and hears His people. Psalm 56:3, “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” God hears the prayers of His penitent faithful people.

Well, sleep came returned until eight this morning. Why do I wait to pray? God heard and answered my prayer.
How is prayer a daily part of our lives?
God hears us pray,
