in the morning, lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning i lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.
Prayer can sometimes feel difficult to master…
…perhaps it can sometimes even feel difficult to know where to start.
Psalm 5:3 shares some clear and simple thoughts that encourage the simplicity of prayer.
God hears my voice! I don’t have to raise it loudly for Him to notice, or be in a certain place or time to cross His mind, or even have the right vocabulary. God hears my voice!
Since that is true, prayer itself is actually really simple: (1) lay requests before God and then (2) wait with expectation. Today let’s have the humility and presence of mind to bring our needs to God and the hopeful expectation to wait patiently to see how God will intervene.
