I love the LORD, because he has heard

          my voice and my supplications. (Psalm 116:1)

The psalmist sings out during her time of distress. She pledges her dedication to God because God is faithful, God hears her prayers, God hears our prayers. But prayer isn’t only about asking God to relieve us when we feel distressed. The act of prayer also reminds us that we are frail people – we rely on God and we rely on one another. Prayer reminds us that we are people of need – we need God and we need one another. Prayer reminds us that we are not alone – that God is with us and we move through life together, regardless of the circumstances. – rc
