I cry aloud to the LORD, and he answers me from his holy mountain. Interlude
I love the LORD because he has heard my prayer for mercy;
2 Samuel 22:4
As I am praising him, I will call out to the LORD, and I will be saved from my enemies.
I cried out to the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I was delivered from my enemies.
I call upon you, for you will answer me, God. Listen closely to me and hear my prayer.
Morning, noon, and night, I mulled over these things and cried out in my distress, and he heard my voice.
But understand this: the LORD has set apart the godly for himself! The LORD will hear me when I cry out to him!
1 John 3:22
Whatever we request we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.
