Hear my prayer, O Lord God Almighty;
listen to me, O God of Jacob. Selah.
Now the author shifts to himself. He cries out to God! His hope and his trust are that God will hear him. That God will listen to him.
And what a hope that is. That the almighty God will listen to us. That when we pray, we can rest assured that He hears us. We do not speak to the air in vain. We do not pray to a God who flippantly chooses whether or not He will hear us.
We pray to a God who listens. Even when He seems silent, He is listening.
