Have mercy … heal me … deliver me … save me … (Psalm 6:2, 4).
David freely admits his fear of punishment, his need for God’s help, and his grief that robbed him of sleep.
But he also admitted just as freely his rock-solid assurance of God’s help:
- The Lord has heard my weeping
- The Lord has heard my supplication
- The Lord will receive my prayer
Godly leaders are confidently transparent before God and before those around them. God delights in that transparency, and He delights to answer vulnerable prayers.
