Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me!
We often pray silently in our heads. But sometimes, particularly when we’re most aware of our needs, our cries need to come down from our heads and pass boldly through our mouths.
David was not reluctant to cry aloud to the Lord, asking him for mercy and attention. We can do the same.
Try praying aloud to God now through these thoughts from Psalm 27:7 and Hebrews 4:16:
Please listen to these words I’m saying out loud. I’m coming to your throne to receive your mercy and your grace. I know You will answer me and help every time I need You.
Silently or out loud, we can always ask for divine favor.
