Motivation to Pray (Ps 116:1-2)

(Psalm 116:1-2) “I love the LORD, because He hears My voice and my supplications. {2}  Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.”

  1. God hears our voice. He knows us and our voice. We have relationship with God and we regularly talk to Him, so He knows and hears our voice. He is interested in us personally.
  2. God hears our supplications. He knows the content of what we are praying about. He knows what we are going to ask before we ask it, but He still listens to our prayers, supplications, and requests.
  3. God inclines His ear to us. God is interested in us and the things that concern us. His leaning towards us, and His intentional action of inclining His ears to carefully listen to what we are saying demonstrates His love, concern and interest. God honors us by inclining His ears to listen to us. God prioritizes us by focusing solely on us and inclining His ear towards us.
