Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto You will I pray. My voice shall You hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto You, and will look up. Psalm 5:2-3 (KJV)

We so often call on God in prayer. Even many who will publicly proclaim “I do not believe in God” will call out to God when some traumatic event happens.
In these two verses of Psalm 5, the Psalmist cries out, “Hearken unto the voice of my cry…”. Which is a yearning for God to hear. The sweet Psalmist of Israel calling out to the One He knew would hear, and answer his call, his cry. The honor, respect, and devotion is seen in the prayer. “My King, and my God” would only be the One whom he loved, trusted, and to whom he has committed his life.
The words of faith spoken in this prayer, “My voice shall You Hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto You, and will look up.” By his faith in the Living God he is able to look into the distance, and from the events of his past know that GOD will hear him. Not just today, but every time he prays.
Every time the Christian prays to the One who has made all things, and made us in His image, we can know that God does hear and answer our prayer. Knowing that we can look into the distance… into the future, and know that He will hear, and answer.
