3 But you, LORD, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
4 I call out to the LORD,
and he answers me from his holy mountain.
– Psalm 3:3-4
Think on it. The Lord ought to be something to you. He should be something personal to you. He reside in heaven, but he presides over all the earth. He may appear to do something for everyone, even those who seem to only half-heartedly believe in Him, but He surely has done something good for you.
Take a brief moment to consider and contemplate all of what God has done on your behalf. Before you utter a prayer, build up your arsenal of praise for what He has already done for you. Forget about going to God with your cares and concerns. Give Him some adoration and praise for His already-answered blessings bestowed upon you. Call on Him and acknowledge what He has done for you and how He has come through for you.
