In prayer we have a direct beeline to God. Better than wireless, the Holy Spirit carries our message to the Father even before we speak: “Even before a word is on my tongue, Lord, you know it all” (Psalm 139:4).

King David put himself in the Lord’s all-holy presence, and he was heard and loved by the Father:

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and put a new and right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from thy presence,
and take not thy holy Spirit from me.

Psalm 51:10-11
(RSV; 12-13 in NABRE)
