This is a plea for God to hear my prayer and deliver me from distress. It’s a cry to God for protection against those who reject both God and me. “They run after what is worthless.” CEV I know that I belong to Him, and He will answer me. We must search ourselves on our beds at night, purify ourselves as we confess our sins and trust God with our lives & submit to His plan for our lives as revealed in the Word. A good relationship with God gives more joy and peace than all the wealth and pleasure in the world.
