Introduction into Psalm 116:
Writer is anonymous: "Praise for being saved from certain death. Worship is a thankful response and not a repayment for what God has done."
"I love the Lord
because He hears my prayers
and answers them.
Because He bends down and listens.
I will pray as long as I breathe!"
~ Psalm 116: 1 & 2 LAB
Bible Commentary: "God is not so far away that we cannot reach Him. He 'bends down and listens' to our prayers. If we are discouraged, we need to remember that God is near, listening carefully to every prayer and answering each prayer in order to give us His best."
God, help us to pray more, love more, trust more, and believe more. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
