The Scripture has much to say about praying for one another. Prayer is the absolute best thing we can do, not just because it’s commanded but because it can accomplish much (James 5:16). Prayer for Peter set him free from prison (Acts 12:5). Just as Aaron and Hur holding up Moses’ hands during battle gave Israel victory (Exodus 17:12), sometimes we need to help support those around us in need (Galatians 6:2).
God expects every Christian to talk to his heavenly father in prayer. We are instructed to pray in private and to make prayer a conversation with God, not a show. God promises that our heavenly Father will hear our prayer and reward us openly.
God tells us many characteristics of Himself throughout the Scriptures. Many speak of His glory and power, but this verse tells us about God’s desire to be within reach of each of us. He is the ONE Who hears our prayers. What is more personal than our deepest desires, the things we tell God when it’s just the two of us? God’s there, listening. Not just listening, but intently listening, as if we are the only one in all creation.
The psalmist here demonstrates a person that starts his day by turning his focus onto God. Prayer is an act of faith demonstrating our dependence upon the Lord. It is also an act of worship where we can praise God and thank Him for all that he does. What a great way to start the day!
A good friend would often quote this verse when we would be talking about the troubles of life. He would simply say, “The Bible says, men ought always to pray, and not to faint”.
God invites me to come to Him without any fear or reservations
