King David, in his wisdom, pleads for God to pay attention. David knows he isn’t making any sense. I know I do not make sense to God many times as well.

  • I groan.
  • I cry.
  • I ramble on.

That does not stop David and it should not stop me. Every morning I should be at again and waiting on God to send fire down. God is in a good mood and he will. Jesus is in control of God’s country and government.

Give ear to my words,  Yahweh [O Lord]; consider my groaning. Give attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to you do I pray. Yahweh [O Lord], in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch. [1]

God is faithful and God is good. God will hear our prayers. There is no doubt about that. We can take it to the bank. We need to come in humility. God does not owe us anything.
