David understood the residual effect that singing praises to God has upon the person singing. The singing lifts up your heart and opens it to receive from God. It puts you it the right frame of mind to talk and receive from God. This is called supplication. The Word says that when we pray, we are to enter our prayer closet. The reason is that prayer is a personal and intimate communication between God and man. Revealing oneself to each other, from the heart of God to the heart of man. Prayer is worship, petitions, standing in the gap and giving of thanks to God for all things. Hope is what God gives to us and without it we couldn’t go on. Finding our way to heaven requires hope in our heart. We also use hope to accomplish God’s will. If we didn’t believe it could happen, we wouldn’t even try. Hope that God will do what we ask is an important part of prayer. Do you know how many people enter into God’s presence to pray? Very few, even though God wants everybody to enter in. muster the courage to enter into His presence, and stay there until God answers your prayer. You will never be the same. The Bible say, “Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.” Let me know what happens.
