“Bow down Thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.” Psalm 86:1 (KJV)
A prayer, a Psalm of David; he humbles himself before the LORD in a time of need.
As should any child of God; but also any who realize they are outside the will of God, and will humble themselves before the Potentate of all of life.
God will hear the prayer of the humble. He has no ear for hearing the self sufficient, the arrogant, the proud; for they are holding on to the iniquity of their hearts (Psalm 66:18).
If you will notice the position of David’s heart. He sees himself as “Poor” and “Needy”. His greatest need; as is mine and yours is God Himself. He has given us Jesus, and His death on the cross that we might come to Him. It is the only way. So come.
