Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord.
Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly. (Psalm 5:3 NLT)
How many times do we pray and say God didn’t reply us?
How many times do we ask God a question and it seems he doesn’t respond?
A lot of times we say our prayers in a hurry or out of desperation, our prayers are either very routine, like the grace we say before dinner, or they are due to an urgent and pressing need, when we feel helpless and we know that God is the only solution we have.
Prayers aren’t meant to be on-demand transactions with God, a lot of times we feel that once we pray God should answer immediately, just like watching a movie on Netflix. Prayers instead are meant to be conversations with God, we speak and then we must wait for him to respond.
In today’s text we see how David talked to God, he said “each morning I bring my requests to you andi wait expectantly”. That means when we pray we should tell God, what’s on our minds, and then we must have faith that he heard us, and then we must wait for him to answer our requests.
Our conversations with God shouldn’t be on-demand, he always answers us at the right time, be rest assured in his word because he promises he will never leave us, or forsake us.
