“Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; have mercy on me, and hear my prayer” (Psalm 4:1)

The Old Testament uses several different words for calling on/for God.

One of those words means to call/cry out (loudly). Another word is the crying to be freed from trouble/s. It is this latter word that I would like to share with you from the Psalms – – when people like you and myself cry out to God, the only One who can help them. People are in serious trouble today and deep inside they are begging God to help them. I trust that the following words will be helpful and a blessing to the reader:

“Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, for to You I will pray”(Psalm 5:2)

[All of these references are uttered by David, Israel’s greatest king. Here he calls God his King. Even great kings need help from God]!

“In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, and my cry came before Him, even to His ears”(Psalm 18:6)

“Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry to You, when I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary” (Psalm 28:2)

“The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry” (Psalm 34:15)

“Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear to my cry; do not be silent at my tears…” (Psalm 39:12a)

“He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them” (Psalm 145:19)
