And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.

Need

Father, here my cry for help, my king and my God, for I am praying to you! For you defend my just cause; from your thrown you pronounced a just decision. You do not permanently ignore the needy, the hopes of the oppressed are not forever dashed. You spring into action at the painful cries of the needy. You provide safety they so desperately desire. Do not remain far away from me, for trouble is near and I have no one that can help me the way you can. You are my shepherd, I lack nothing. My heart tells me to pray to you, and I do pray to you, O Lord. Here my plea for mercy when I cry out to you for help, when I lift my hands toward your holy temple! In the name of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.
