Hear me when I call, Oh God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer. Psalm 4:1 NKJV
Give ear to my words, O Lord, Consider my meditation. Give heed to the voice of my cry, my King and my God, for to You I will pray. My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up. Psalm 5:1-3 NKJV
The man with a heart after God’s is crying out to his Lord. He is praying. He is asking Almighty God to hear his prayer. David is asking God to answer his prayer!
