But know that the Lord has set apart the godly for himself; the Lord hears when I call to him. -Psalm 4:3

“Election is the guarantee of complete salvation, and an argument for success at the throne of grace.  He who chose us for himself will surely hear our prayers.  The Lord’s elect shall not be condemned, nor shall their cry be unheard.  David was king by divine decree, and we are the Lord’s people in the same manner; let us tell our enemies to their faces, that they fight against God and destiny, when they strive to overthrow our souls. O beloved, when you are on your knees, the fact of your being set apart as God’s own peculiar treasure, should give you courage and inspire you with fervency and faith…Since he chose to love us he cannot but chose to hear us.”  Charles Spurgeon on Psalm 4:3

  1. This post strikes a chord with me.
    My whole search for intimacy with God has focused, not surprisingly, to learning how to pray.
    As DL Moody said, “Every work of God can be traced to some kneeling form.” Prayer has a value I am just not coming to grips with.

    I am also teaching a group of 10 junior high boys, going through a Bible study on prayer. Your post will be put to good use.
