Prayer is not the easiest thing I do in my life. Is it for you?
I once heard a pastor say that no one in the church would raise their hands if he asked if anyone had the prayer life they always wanted.
My prayer life currently is very much in the moment. If someone asks me to pray, I do it right then. I pray when I need help with parenting. I pray as I read things. I pray in the car when a song comes on that reminds me to pray about something.
And really, Psalm 6, is not about prayer. Not really. Its about confession. Its about seeking the God who is able and willing to show mercy on us and forgive all our sins.
David, in his agony and turmoil, maybe in a depression, maybe feeling totally away from God, appeals to His character. God’s faithfulness, His acts of redemption, His leading and mercy and grace. These are the things that David knows God to be. And even when David can’t feel God or even when David thinks he has nothing to bring and God shouldn’t answer Him, he calls out for mercy.
And God answers.
