Psalm 4:1 ” Answer me when I call to You, O my righteous God. Give me relief from distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.”

Distress comes in many different forms, and no one is immune to worry.  But it’s how we approach difficulties and troubles that can make the difference between barely wallowing through them, and coming out the other side better not bitter.  This Psalm gives us a blueprint or a road-map, if you will, when it comes to offering our supplication before the Lord.  First we need to realize that when we cry out to God, He actually hears us.  He’s not some far off entity… aloof and distant.  Rather, God longs to hear our prayers and work in and through the troubles we’re going through.  Next, He’s a just God full of kindness…He knows what we’re going through and wants to help.  Finally, He’s a listening God.  For when there’s no one else you can confide in…He’s always there.
